To make it in America, you must have the passion, hunger, ambition, and mental capacity to deal with every obstacle God throws at you. To Ameer, that’s called “AMEERica”. KillerHipHop.com’s DJ Eric Kidd was honored to sit down with Ameer as we got to know him as each second ticked during the interview. Ameer brought knowledge of what great up-and-coming MCs think through as the creative process of their project evolves.
Ameer was able to talk to us about how his project “AMEERica” came about, his beat selections, his controversial “Talk Like A Black Panther” record and much more.

Lights, camera, action. Hip-Hop music videos contain some of the flashiest 4 minutes of video you’ll ever see on the internet. From scantily clad women to the fastest cars in the world, hip-hop videos have it all. But who’s creating all of these videos? One of hip-hop’s most talented video directors goes by the name of Matt Alonzo. He’s directed music videos for Game, Nipsey Hussle, French Montana, Nas, the Far East Movement, Pitbull, Ice Cube, and Xzibit.
KillerHipHop recently had the privilege of interviewing Matt Alonzo. During our conversation, he talked about directing Game’s “Celebration,” Lil Wayne’s “Gossip” jump-starting his career, the creation of “Martians Vs. Goblins,” French Montana’s “Ocho Cinco,” and his upcoming projects with Nipsey Hussle. Hit the break for our exclusive interview with Matt Alonzo.
