Music Videos Then VS Now
Nowadays, you may have noticed the music videos playing in fast food joints and gyms. Most of them, if not all, are just people dancing for no apparent reason. While some would argue that it was a creative choice, it can be hard to believe when you have seen the same “creative choice” made for every music video. In this episode, Vizunary, Joe Audio, and the hosts talk about how music videos have changed through the years, from costing almost billions of dollars to make to only needing a phone with a good enough camera and someone to hold it. The barrier to making music videos has gone down, which means anyone can make a music video with the right equipment, software, and idea. But with an era saturated with nonsensical music videos, how can anyone stand out from the rest? Find out more in today’s episode of the AmigosPC Podcast!
The Future of Rap
Vizunary believes that today’s Rap has reached a plateau because he keeps hearing the same formula played on the radio in the last five years. It is the same process over and over, tweaked in subtle ways here and there. While some of them do sound a bit different such as Post Malone, who they consider a breath of fresh air, everything else stayed the same. Some artists tip the scale now and then, depending on who does something different first. But when an artist does something different, copies of it will follow soon after, creating another formula, another plateau. If anything, rappers nowadays, especially female rappers, are starting to sway back to how rappers used to do it more than a decade ago. Thus, the future of Rap is going back to the root of the genre.
About Vizunary and Joe Audio:
In 2006 Phoenix, AZ. Vizunary started recording music for his first street album Vizunz Vol. 1: The Beginning. After releasing the album in late June 2007, he realized that people enjoyed his music. Hence, he started performing at weekly shows around the Phoenix metro area. Simultaneously, Vizunary began working with Joe Audio to put out a mixtape called Arizona Vizunz, forming Brown Street Entertainment.
Arizona Vizunz was released in January 2008 and started to gain notarization among local and regional artists and fans. After its release, the duo began to perform 2-4 shows weekly in the Phoenix metro area and the entire state of Arizona for the rest of the year. In 2009, the two started working on a new album called Future Desert Sounds with other artists. Around that time, Vizunary also began to work on his second album Vizunz Vol. 2. Upon releasing Future Desert Sounds in September 2009, the group performed extensively for the next six months to promote it.
A year later, Vizunary decided to go on a partial hiatus for the next ten years, performing and releasing new songs sporadically. He recently finished Vizunz Vol. 2: Game Face and released it on November 27, 2020.
