Video: Wizdom's "Salud" is a Battle-Cry for a More Elemental Aesthetic in Hip-Hop

Wizdom cold-cocks corny rappers of all stripes--especially the self-styled conscious kind--in the just-released video for "Salud," off his 2008 collaboration with producer Epidemmik, titled Music: Soul of the Man. Shot in black and white by director Jon Augustavo, the video is a stripped-down affair that centers primarily on Wiz. The style is meant to mirror the song's call-to-arms for a truer, more elemental hip-hop aesthetic, and on that level it works beautifully. The framing, the crisp B&W, the city streets: It all reinforces the song's theme. That said, one can't help but want a little something more thrown into the mix--something that breathes a little more visual life into Wiz's well-chosen words.
