Home Studio Footage of DJ Shadow in 1995 

(Part 2 of 2)

Nicki Minaj’s latest video was shot in Trinidad & Tobago, where she was born and where my Mom and much of my family is from.  It’s got some stunning scenic shots in locations iconic to anyone familiar with the country.  Classic carnival characters make appearances, like blue devils and moko jumbies (the stilt-walkers) which my mother adores, along with a cameo from Machel Montano, probably the biggest Soca artist ever.  I knew she’d appreciate having these so I took some stills from the video to send to her.  (Part 1 of 2)
