Welcome to TWIB’s Weekly Top 10 Videos. This is a segment where we will be looking at some exceptional visuals from various acts from around the globe. The music video format has been around for decades and through the 90s and 2000s, it has taken flight from multi-million budget music videos, to mid to low-budget videos with exceptional features. In this section, we will not discriminate but rather highlight some of the creative visuals that pop up on our radar.
Again, we promise to bring you the best from high to low budget, to animated to DIY and first and foremost, the most creative visuals we can source.

N8! – “Destroy & Rebuild”.

Harlem Born and Bred God MC N8! returns with a new release titled “Destroy & Rebuild”. The insightful piece is a haunting and thought-provoking track that explores modern warfare that comes in different forms but with one sole aim to subjugate the masses. Over the cinematic and menacing backdrop, N8! delivers a fiery performance ripe with edgy and vivid lyricism laced with bravado and jewels. The video was made in collaboration with The Dor Brothers who specialize in cutting edge AI video animation.

Dax – “Narcissist”.

Hard-working musician Dax keeps switching his musical horizon with every release and on his new effort titled “Narcissist”, he delivers a heartfelt contemporary pop record that explores the effects of toxic love. Backed by a warm and soothing guitar-driven backdrop, Dax delivers a solemn performance ripe with soothing melodies and relatable lyrics. He is joined by fellow artist Phix who adds his tale of abuse into the mix.

M-Dot x Grand Puba – “Run Along” prod. By The Mighty V.I.C. [Cuts By Dom2er & DJ 7L]”

Boston rhyme slayer M-Dot connects with legendary emcee Grand Puba (of Brand Nubian) for his latest single “Run Along.” The track was produced by The Mighty V.I.C. who flips a classic soul sample into a gripping hard-hitting soundscape for the emcees to paint their verbal pictures. The track is also bolstered by excellent scratches from Dom2er and DJ 7L (of Czarface). The video edited by Victor Keys is a befitting tribute to the classic 90s basketball game  “NBA Jam” and adds a nostalgic element to the traditional sound of the record.

The single is taken from the upcoming album “Daze Of Greed” dropping 3/8/24 and is available now for pre-order via Bandcamp. The album features production by M-Phazes, Vinny Idol, 88-Keys, Apollo Brown, The Mighty V.I.C. and appearances by Big Shug (Gang Starr Foundation), Estee Nack (Griselda), Grand Puba (Brand Nubian), Ty Farris & M-Dot’s EMS crew.

DMV’s own Stilljune returns to our playlist with his new release titled “Everybody Hates June”. The anthemic track is produced by The Legion who lace the rapper with a cinematic and thumping backdrop ripe with scenic synths and rich sound design. StillJune sure sounds at home and takes the opposition to the ground with his unfiltered raps and bravado. He reminds them that he is not taking any shorts or losses. The visuals use performance clips of StillJune in different spots and tap into the rappers’ resilience and never-say-die spirit.
