Famed hip-hop director Hype Williams has made a career out of his flashy approach to music videos.  His two most recent clips, Kanye West’s “All Of The Lights” and Lil’ Wayne’s “6’7” draw heavily from movies you may have seen. “6’7” was obviously inspired by Christopher Nolan’s Inception, and “All Of The Lights” borrows from Gasper Noe’s independent film Enter The Void. A quick trip through Williams’ videography shows that he’s been jackin for scripts for awhile.
