Mistah Fab's 'Fuck the World' Video: Is Anti-Violence the New Hyphy?

Categories: Hip-Hop, Video

We're a long way from "going dumb," here folks. The latest video from Oakland hyphy hoss Mistah Fab sees the rapper straight-faced, decrying numbness, fatalism, and of course violence. "They say 'fuck the world,' like it don't mean nuthin,' goes the refrain, an apparent effort to rap Oakland youth out of self-destructive inclinations. Aris Jerome's black-and-white clip follows young hustlers sellin', cruises bleak boulevards, and concludes solemnly in a hazy graveyard. Message pretty clear; ghost-riding lessons left out. Coupled with this, I wonder if we're seeing a growing movement in the Oakland rap scene to try to challenge the endemic negative outlooks and violence.
