New Video: Raekwon, "Surgical Gloves"

The video for Raekwon's "Surgical Gloves" is not as excellent as the ones for "Catalina" and "Walk With Me," but it's not terrible, in its raw surveillance-camera monochromaticism. And the song is strong. Shame the Only Built 4 Cuban Linx 2 album wasn't among the Grammy nominations that just came out. (Like that could ever happen.) Nice to see Mos Def up there, though. And twice: for best rap solo performance with "Casa Bey" and best rap album with The Ecstatic.

OB4CL2 came out too late to make the album nominees –the Grammy cutoff got moved up to Aug. 30 this year, so as to make the JANUARY 31st AWARD SHOW seem more immediately irrelevant than it was last year. Yay, music industry. I wonder if Flo Rida is going to win?!

Whoops. Now I feel dumb. But thanks. And hey: here's hoping the Grammy nominators make it a point to prove me wrong when they have the opportunity next year.

Nor is it as good as the "House of Flying Daggers" video (, but, yes, a good song.
