Welcome to TWIB’s Weekly Top 5 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 really 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.




Doc Samson – “Bucktown, USA”

Electic artist/producer Doc Samson kicks off this week’s list with “Bucktown, USA.” The somber and reflective track is a display of versatility from smooth melodic runs, heartfelt lyrics, and the relatable premise that dwell on the current state of affairs in the USA. The visual by Drewshotya is particularly engaging as it makes use of off-kilter motifs, dystopian aesthetics with a retro cinematic texture to match.

Franchise The Rapper – “Problem”

Franchise The Rapper‘s bouncy track “Problem” gets a hilarious visual and it caught our eyes. The Epik The Dawn-produced track itself is a display of lyrical bravado from the rapper and the accompanying visual continues the energy with its over-the-top performances.  The Chek The Credits -directed video follows Franchise attempting to rescue his girlfriend from a gang. From the throwback vibe and hilarious fight scenes, viewers would surely be entertained from start to finish.

“Problem is Franchise’s 2nd single off of his upcoming project, The Underdog, Pt. 2.


Bobby Thibs – “Pillowcase”

Bobby Thibs returns with visuals for the song “Pillowcase” taken from his recent LP Divine Suffering. The self-produced track is bolstered by the dark and trippy visual that blends psychedelic effects and several cut scenes of the artist as he pours his heart out on wax. The visual is directed by Robert Thibodeau.




Mukhy – “Posh Life (Music Video)”

British Nigerian afro-fusion artist Mukhy shows us his “Posh Life” in this celebratory record and enticing visuals. Bolstered by the rich groovy backdrop provided by Ransom Beatz, Mukhy delivers a smooth performance ripe with celebratory raps and a toast to the good life. The visual is Nigerian filmmaker and photographer Nosachii, who makes use of lively and vibrant aesthetics to capture Mukhy’s current disposition and makes for highly recommended viewing.


kodak black – “Super Gremlin” (Remix by Dax)”

Dax closes out this week’s list with his own take on “Super Gremlin” and the result is another riveting piece that showcases his fiery lyrical style over the moody piano-laden backdrop. The visual is inspired by the original Star Wars and sees Kodak embodying the spirit of Darth Vader but it also switches into the rapper masking his face with the country flags that made him who he is. He reps Nigeria and Canada unabashedly and reminds us that he is not one to play with.
