Legendary Video Director Hype Williams In Conversation at #RBMNYC [Live Stream]

Hype Williams

By Jack Barnes

Red Bull Music Festival in New York presents Legendary Video Director Hype Williams In Conversation on Visual Music today @ AMC Empire 25. Fans can tune in to hear the conversation live via Red Bull Radio via the stream below starting at 8 pm. Enjoy this audio stream below after the jump and please share this with friends.

“Hype” Williams first made his name as a music video director in the ’90s, with a flamboyant and daring style perfectly in sync with hip-hop in its commercial ascendancy. His landmark visuals for Busta Rhymes, Missy Elliott, Puffy, Mase and Tupac indelibly pushed rap iconography to new levels of maximalism, while collaborations with the Notorious B.I.G., Craig Mack, Wu-Tang Clan, DMX and others remain testaments to the poetry of simplicity. Today, Williams endures as a creative benchmark and go-to for artists with a vision – be they Beyonce, Kanye West or Jack White. For this conversation, the Queens native will discuss the making of selected videos chosen from the hundreds he has helmed since 1991. It’s a rare chance to hear how the kid who wanted to be the “Basquiat of the streets” applied his Technicolor vision to the biggest names in rap and pop, defining the era’s sounds for the screen. The conversation will be moderated by acclaimed hip-hop journalist and ego trip co-conspirator Jeff “Chairman” Mao.
