Rok is currently working on several music videos for Rhymefest's upcoming album "El Che", as well as a documentary about rapper Common's "Resurrection" album.
On February 11, 2011 Raekwon released the Konee Rok directed music video for “Shaolin vs Wu-Tang,” the title track from The Chef's upcoming album of the same name. The video features a hybrid of cartoon martial artistry with live action of Raekwon laying down his vocals.
In late November, 2012 singer Chrisette Michele debuted the Konee Rok directed music video for her song “Can the Cool Be Loved?” featuring Dunson and Bilal. Chrisette Michele gave an explanation about the clip, offering, “A fun lil Audiovisual Presentation Konee Rok and I drummed up. The concept is "Prisoner of a Still Picture" Dunson and I are stuck in the iconic photography of Audrey and the great Sir Davis. We pose in these lyrics, the question, “Can The Cool Be Loved?” From our Art to Yours… Enjoy.”.
In early February, 2014 Phife Dawg of A Tribe Called Quest premiered the Konee Rok directed music video "Dear Dilla"; produced by Dj Rasta Root. The song which pays homage to legendary Hip Hop producer J Dilla, is Phife’s first solo release in 14 years and it is the first single off of his upcoming album “MUTTYmorphosis”. The clip finds Phife paying homage the best way he knows how, sharing some of his bars, and his memories of the legend, while supplying a nice set of visuals that match each bar specifically. The video tribute gives the sentiment a colorful upgrade as the "5 Footer" shoots his scenes everywhere from Atlanta to Dilla's hometown of Detroit to give the lyrics an organic feel. "Dear Dilla" was filmed in Chicago as well as two days in J. Dilla's hometown of Detroit. The video was #1 on "The Wrap Up: Hip-Hop Wired's Top 10 Videos Of The Week" for the week of February 14, 2014.
