Ten Music Videos featuring Abandoned Buildings

1. L'Orange and Stik Figa - "Smoke Rings" 2013  *L'Orange is one of my new favorite super-producers. The City Under The City and The Orchid Days are both instant classics.

2. The Doppelgangaz - "Suppository" 2011  *These guys are bout that cloak life.

3. Reks - "This Or That" (Produced by Statik Selektah) 2011  *Not to be confused with Wreckx-n-Effect, this song is way less exciting than "Rumpshaker."

4. Tim Cross and Burger - "Lacoste" 2014  *I love the abandoned roller coaster location.

5. Tech N9ne feat. Kendrick Lamar, ¡MAYDAY!, and Kendall Morgan - "Fragile" 2014  *Never thought I would like a TechN9ne song, isn't he a juggalo?

7. MADlines - "The Weapon" 2014  *Seattle's BeanOne on the production. MADlines was previously featured on Ten Music Videos with Backwards Scenes as half of the duo Canary Sing with Hollis of The Flavr Blue.

8. Dilated Peoples - "Good As Gone" 2014  *They will be at The Showbox on July 9 with Jurassic 5 and The World Famous Beat Junkies, I am so there.

9. Dag Savage (Exile + Johaz) - "The Beginning" 2014  *This video also qualifies for Ten Music Videos featuring Record Stores.

10. NehruvuanDOOM (Bishop Nehru + MF DOOM) - "Darkness" 2014  *I have high hopes for the NehruvianDOOM album. This video should probably be in Eight Music Videos with Special Effect Twins.
