4. A Tribe Called Quest, "Dis Generation"

Director: Hiro Murai
After a triumphant run directing most of the first season of Atlanta, director Hiro Murai returned to the medium he started in to give A Tribe Called Quest a new look. Composed of a series of visual loops where the same characters reappear and repopulate the setting (similar to Kylie Minogue's "Come Into My World"), it's a worthy addition for a group with one of the most creative videographies in hip hop history. With its kinetic street shots and Busta Rhymes feature, "Dis Generation" might be the spiritual sequel to Tribe's 1994 clip for "Oh My God." But, like their reunion album We Got It From Here… Thank You 4 Your Service, the video never feels dated or mired in nostalgia.
