Director Terrence Nance brings the empowering words of Pharoahe, Styles P and Phonte to life with the video for “Black Hand Side.” The visual’s masterfully put together and goes a long way to remind us all that when the the two mediums snap together like puzzle pieces, the effect of the overall project is amplified. This song and “Assassins” easily rank as my two favorite tracks from W.A.R. (We Are Renegades) although I’m not sure I’ve truly given the entire project a fair shake. All of which leads me to believe that I need to revisit the album, given my fondness for Pharoahe’s previous works.
So kudos to Pharoahe for continuing to promote his project, as well as highlighting a song that projects such a positive image.
