Directed by Hype Williams | 1998

With Nas, DMX, Taral Hicks

“Fuck a book,” says star DMX, and indeed this is post-verbal filmmaking, with vital plot points rendered in Jamaican patois. Belly opens with a blacklight nightclub stickup set to a capella vocal gymnastics, and director Hype Williams (auteur of shiny-suit-era Bad Boy music videos) doesn't allow a routine frame past the velvet rope in his sui generis, Alizé-and-mushrooms swirl of millennial Manhattan and dancehall reggae.
