  1. Frankly this one video per album issue has bothered me for years. I suggest artists shoot three or two videos in-one thus cutting costs and increasing anticipation by simply ending the first video with a simple “to be continued”. Hip Hop artist must not be afraid to think out of the box as what is so common in the rock industry’s music videos.

The thing with videos is that you can tally the popularity/star power via the views, and I think some artist/labels are cautious not to be claiming that they’re the Prince of hiphop and only have a couple of thousands views.
