Music Video Pick | “She” by Tyler, the Creator ft. Frank Ocean

Fresh off of his win at MTV’s VMAs for Best New Artist, Tyler the Creator has refreshed his presence. His music videos are all well thought out and well produced, but now is as good a time as any to re-watch his video for “She.” The video was originally censored by MTV, but they consented to showing the video after Tyler (reluctantly) made some edits. The beat for “She” is creepy, and the video sets the mood for this. One of the most haunting images is when Tyler rapping his devotion to the girl of his dreams by the lake. He is wearing a t-shirt covered in kittens, but his eyes are huge. His pupils are completely┬ádilated, which gives him a look of incredible innocence, but this image runs entirely contrary to the track and the lyrics that are coming out of his mouth. Watch the uncensored clip – as Tyler meant it to be shown – after the jump.
