Music Video Analysis – D-12 Fight Music

The song is about the group D-12, the group was very different to any other group in them days. They had a white person rapping along side black rappers. This was different to other people. So basically, this is about how the group D-12 is the odd ones out and how they feel about all the hate.

The song shows all the aspects they are put down on due to the vast amount of diversity they have in their group and the reasons they are hated. The song discovers the meaningless hate and racism they take without proper reasons. This song is basically about releasing anger.

The music video is about a fight club, where the only odd ones out are the D-12 music group. This is shown by the starting movie like scene where the host on the car is insulting the group D-12 group due to them having a white rapper. The story carries on from there how they challenge all the hate and how they over-come it, and how they do not care about what they think.

The group is represented as a out-cast in the larger group. They are shown to be different looking at the song due to the lyrics and the visuals it seems like all the other individuals at the scene hate them. This may be a representation of real life negativity towards the group due to their diverse amount of members. Overall, in this song the group is shown in a negative way by being an outcast.

Yes, you can clearly see that the main artist(s) are, and who they are. The video has done great in showing exactly who is important in the video, this is done by their clothing, camera work, mise en scene and much more which i will go into dept later. I think that the theory has a obvious connection to this.

There are not allot of camera angles in the music, they mostly direct on the artists and they are neither high or low, but pretty much at the perfect height parallel to the artists. Editing is sharp and quick, these are various different scenes which razor cut between each other, this makes the video look like it has a fast tempo. Mise en Scene is used to show the environment they are in as a old roughed up environment, this may be used to show the status and how people think of them, as poor, unknown artists, like trash. This may be a whole big metaphor.

This genre is rap/hip hop, this is complying with the genre because most of the rap artists have the star-image and they mostly focus on themselves instead of anything else.

Yes, it focuses on the group and how they are the outcasts and what they feel about it, various shots are involved of other groups however the main focus is on the main artists who in this case are D12. This shows that the star-image is being over-exaggerated by making the audience constantly focus on them. This is good because this type of genre always focus on the artist/artists so it is nothing new or old for the genre and style of music.
