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.
