Video Week: Jinx, 'U' (featuring Monica Delgado)
The downtown Tampa skyline gets another shot at stardom in the opening seconds of the new video for U, by Tampa rapper Jinx and singer Monica Delgado. The video dropped with an April release party at Czar, and the song, at least, has attracted the attention of Mario Lopez.
Directed by Omar Shaikh, the clip features slow-mo breakdancing, neon clothing and cameos by local hip-hoppers Dynasty, Blac Soap and Prime. But above all that, it has the bonus of being a pretty awesome jam, in the vein of Pharcyde or Jurassic 5. Click here to purchase U.
