Hype Williams is on this list because he has given me the line I have falling back in love with and use often, especially with my homegirl Superhussy, from his first film Belly:
"yo, I'm tired of this. Let's go to Africa."
Now, Hype Williams is an African-American and Hondoruan filmmaker from NYC. You may know him mainly from his music videos, which I agree, at one time, were amazing. I mean check out two of my favorites: Busta Rhymes video Gimme Some More
and Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Can See
Busta Rhymes - Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Can Se - Watch more Music Videos at Vodpod.
Here's a montage with intro by Kanye West for when Williams won The Video Vanguard Award by MTV in 2006. You will hear him thank his mother for her support in his craft.
