Video: Inside A Change (Ft. Usef Dinero & DJ Jazzy Jeff) – Skillz

Vodpod videos no longer available.

To celebrate “Inside A Change” winning the Best Film Award at the 2009 HBO NYILFF, Skillz, Usef Dinero and DJ Jazzy Jeff put this joint together for the soundtrack. The original concept for the video was to create literal interpretations of Skillz’ lyrics that have to do with the characters in the film. However, that sort of morphed into straight up performance shots where we followed Skillz around various locations during his tour and intercutting it with abstract b roll shots. It was a blast shooting this video and big huge shoutout to Skillz for supporting this film since day one. Enjoy!

This appears on the OST to Rik Cordero’s Award Winning Film, Inside A Change alongside a slew of other dope tracks. If you haven’t checked it out yet, you should really do so.

From Rik…

Last night during the Bacardi Live Tour at M2 Ultralounge in NYC, Three/21 and Skillz shot final pickup shots for the “Inside A Change” music video produced by Usef Dinero AKA Jo Money, featuring Skillz and the legendary DJ Jazzy Jeff on the cut. Skillz and Jeff killed the crowd as you’ll see in the footage and to have a legend like Jeff on this mixtape is quite a blessing. Shoutout to the homie Skillz who is always a pleasure to work with and for making this dope title track for the flick. Enjoy!

Also, here goes a new track from that dude Skillz featuring Nick Cannon’s Wifey and Dre Storm entitled It’s Alright off of Skillz upcoming album, The World Needs More Skillz
