Video Vault: 7 Classic SMACK DVD Clips

Some of you younger folks may find this hard to believe, but back in the days before the ubiquity of Youtube and that other low rent video streaming site, finding fresh visual content from your favorite rappers used to demand a certain amount of effort on the part of the viewing public. At some point during the early 2000s, a guy from Queens named Smack started putting out regular mixtape magazine style DVDs that featured uncensored interviews, freestyles, battles and low budget music videos from all of the hottest rappers of the moment.

These DVDs gave fans a rare and unfiltered look into the lives of their favorite artists, often in their natural habitat, and were passed around the hood like the local jump off. The influence of SMACK DVD can still be seen in the content that now floods the web on a daily basis: I’m willing to bet those “In-Studio” performance videos probably wouldn’t exist if not for them and Smack’s follow up venture, the Ultimate Rap League battle franchise, is as popular as ever.

For the first installment of our new Video Vault series, we collected a few epic moments from the heyday of the SMACK era for your entertainment.

  14. Nah'sOnlyWhiteBoy Says:

    This was amazing

  15. Casket Face Says:

    Nigga actually thought I’m gonna upload a pic of dinner and good times on demand to prove something to HIM.

    The stupidity and audacity of it all.

    Dude put in a 24 hour shift ON THE WEEKEND on a blog …you got nothing to say to me cuzzo.

    Whoopty doo nigga D list rappers kicked me off the stage at a show I was invited to. Who knows them niggas really? It was ONLY 150 people there.

    Keep bringing that up as if you know what you’re talking about. Every time you do it you just look stupid and give me more insight into the fact you don’t know shit. Or who I had problems with.…

    Problem is you can’t keep it real with yourself and that’s why you can’t understand how I keep it real.

    Your mind be having breakdowns and stalling out. Which is why you show out, crash and burn tryna make me look stupid.

    Nigga you got too much foolish pride, and it shows in every compensatory comment you type.

    How the fuck a “mask” project? Get out of your feelings nigga…you couldn’t be no street nigga or FBI agent nor undercover cop. Let’s me know you just a lame ass nigga with too much to prove for no reason.

  16. Casket Face Says:

    Weak ass nigga think “Threats” from Jay-Z Black Album is real.

    Punk pussy nigga I know when to joke and what to talk about.

    I got FAMILY with open cases nigga, fuck I look like uploading public record to prove to a nigga I never met before I’m about that life.

    Rappers kicked me off stage then apologized within 5 hours cause they knew better.

    I let you run with that bullshit cause you aint no threat and neither is them niggas.

    But ask them niggas how my niggas ran up in their club deep as fuck asking who got a problem with me. Ask them niggas that…ask them how shit REALLY got deaded.

    You a spectator and a outsider nigga…I dont give a fuck how many sn’s cosign you nigga…In the real world I be in places you need police protection fuck nigga.

    Talking about name droppin …you just a fuck nigga window shopping outsider. Be fucking your head up how I randomly drop proof of my existence, outlandish stories proven to be true and pics of rappers and women.

    I am who I am because I do not need to pretend…Like them African child soldiers blowing away their own parents on some genocidal orders and when they get rescued as adults they’re in American colleges gettin jokes cracked on them by stupid American black kids…fake ass street dreaming nigga like you that never seen nothing so it cant be true.

    I seen enough death and destruction to where I aint excited by it nigga…which is why I’m always preaching love nigga. Punk stoop kids I hate you little punk muthafuckas.

    Aint nothing official about you, you exsist online nigga…Casket Face is a clown, my random thoughts lived through a comment section of a blog. Some 100% fact, some 50% fantasy, some are just random jokes and lies….But a real nigga sifts though the bullshit for jewels amd gems.

    You a surface nigga, always gotta prove, always gotta have the spot light, cosigns, because you somehow feel it regulates control.

    Nah you look like that kid from Where The Wild Things Are…all those fucked up traits aint “cosigns” it a variation of your fucked up domineering personality. Compensatory ass nigga…you hollow inside cause you gave your soul up to “appear” you belong.

    I dont fit it, I stand out and tell the truth…sometimes it hurts to hear so you confuse that with hate….Confront that pain nigga, itll make you a better person.

  77. Casket Face Says:

    My bad yall, I be trippin’ (no b) …I was out of line yesterday. Everybody has bad days, I was out all this weekend but was gonna upload some pics to fuck the game up tryna prove something.

    Although I do be knowing who I say I know, and done things I said I’ve done I be out to prove it in a fucked up and tasteless fashion…sometime on some clown shit.

    And although it would’ve came to fists with A-1 in real life talking crazy like that he was right about a couple things. I gotta learn to use internet etiqutte and fall back sometimes. Niggas ain’t believe everything is true even if it is, proving that on a blog just gonna make you looking like lame even if it is true. I just lost a lot in the last 18 months, businesses, and status in certain circles among other things so I be out to prove I’m still good out here. I just got my strength up out here and got my circle back right so I be in a shell shocked frame a mind like I aint going back to Vietnam.

    I got out of order and crossed the line and that shit was cool, I hear niggas sometimes that RESET button gotta be pushed, I’m glad I had a weekend out with my peoples to remind me I aint got shit to prove. Respect.

    Speaking of respect, I ain’t know Big Homie fuck with RR like that. He used to be on Nah super hard (none) back in the day.
