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.

Rosewood Swing – “Tha Mobb”.

Rosewood Swing takes us into his affairs in his new single “Tha Mobb”, a mellow reflective tune that showcases his smooth laidback flow over a soulful and bass-heavy soundscape. He reflects on his life and the many detractors he had to shake off to get to his apex. The self-shot video is simple, straight to the point and captures the rapper in a luxurious setting as he does what he knows best.
“Tha Mobb” is taken from Rosewood Swing’s LP Purple Heart Soulja.



Snotty Nose Rez Kids x Electric Fields – “Red Future” (feat. Electric Fields)


Indigenous Hip-hop duo Snotty Nose Rez Kids lead us into their world with their new single “Red Future” which serves as the title track of their upcoming album. The track is an upbeat anthemic underpinned by vivid and insightful lyrics from Yung Trybez and Young D layered over rich cinematic synths and a mantra-like chorus. The song is bolstered by an eye-popping animated music video that serves as a visual gateway to the project, setting the tone for what’s to come. The video transports viewers into SNRK’s bold new world, merging artistic expression with a futuristic aesthetic, and acts as a visual complement to the album. The blend of live action and animation is seamless and engaging from start to finish.







Kenny Barz x XV – “Stripes” Ft XV [Prod. Ludum J]

Kenny Barz connects with veteran emcee XV for  “Stripes”, a heartfelt and introspective tune that explores self-growth and display of lyricism from both emcees. Backed by the dreamy and sublime soundscape provided by Ludum J, Kenny and XV bring pure lyricism to the forefront with a relatable thread. The visual pays homage to the 90s-styled hip-hop videos but takes liberties with them blending performance shots, funny moments and eye-popping lighting to complete the job.





Songwriter/producer K-I’DE aka Kickin” It Daily Everyway shares the visuals for his new release “I APPRECIATE YOU”. A reflective, guitar-driven and uplifting track that talks about the joys of making it through the mud and appreciating the good ones who kept it real as he moved from pillar to post. The visual shot by J. FINN is well-crafted and uses performance shots, subtle effects and subtitles to bring the positive message to life.


Ezza of Choom Gang – “No Judgment”


St. Catharines, Ontario-based rapper Ezza of Choom Gang makes his entrance on our playlist with “No Judgment”, an introductory track that brings him to the forefront. Over the moody and solemn jazz-infused soundscape, he gives us a glimpse into his life and the experiences that shaped him. The visual is crafted by Tyler Roussel who uses dark scenic shots of the rapper in his stomping grounds.

“Choom Gang” is the brainchild of Ezza’s late best friend and fellow artist Chuck Nyndees (1990-2014) whose inspirational legacy he aims to carry on to the immortal.



Stay Nice – “whycomestuck”.

Australian-based producer/beat-maker Stay Nice gifts us with the animated visual for his release “whycomestuck”. The track is a punchy mix of jazz-soul hip-hop with a touch of funk, reggae/dub and it’s extremely layered with rich instrumentation and a solid groove to match. The visuals use stop motion and layered pictures that go into a loop-like arrangement.




MJ – “Free Your Mind”

multi-talented rapper/songwriter MJ helps us close out this week’s list with “Free Your Mind”. The introspective track has a warm and nostalgia-inducing vibe underpinned by her rich and unapologetic lyrics and distinct mellow flow. She implores us to break free from the mundane and social restraints that keep holding us back from reaching our full potential.

The visual is pretty straight to the point and uses a pure performance shot of MJ in a dimly lit space and we get to see her in her element.
