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.

But moving on, KillerHipHop recently had the privilege of talking to Seattle’s Macklemore. You might recognize Mack’ from the XXL Freshmen list, most likely because he was on it.
