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.





Fliptrix x Ramson Badbonez – “SM58”

Fliptrix , Ramson Badbonez and Onoe Caponoe help kick off this week’s playlist with “SM58”, a hard-hitting record that continues the rapper’s slew of releases. Over the brooding and ominous soundscape, he delivers a fiery performance underpinned by vivid and engaging lyrical schemes. Coming into the fray are rappers Ramson and Onoe who lend their verbal prowess with distinct performances as well.

‘SM58’ drops 6th Jan ‘23 alongside the pre-order link for the album Mantra No. 9.



Duvee Davis – “Born Alone Die Alone”

Duvee Davis is a rapper/producer and Iraqi veteran who makes his entry on our site with “Born Alone Die Alone”. The sombre track sees him reflecting on his life’s journey and the many hurdles he had to face and how he plans on taking charge of his life and take care of his family by any means. The visuals are made up of several performance shots of the rapper in different spots.


MidaZ The BEAST – “Nowhere”



Gold Chain Music’s MidaZ The BEAST returns with new visuals for “Nowhere” which is taken from his forthcoming LP The Devil’s Playground. The track was produced by Uruguay’s Delle Digga and sees MidaZ in his element as he drops solid bars over the soulful soundscape. The visual directed by YoYo captures the rapper in his stomping grounds with his crew.


Dax – “PTSD”

Dax is back for the new year with “PTSD” which is based on real-life experiences. Over the pounding and cinematic soundscape, the rapper/songwriter shares his deepest feelings on wax as he tries to unravel the pain in his soul. The visual takes it back with a cinematic aesthetic that follows several individuals who are going through varying inner pains and fighting demons which ends up with a shooter killing almost everyone in the church.


Samad Savage – “Hot Music”

Eclectic rapper/songwriter Samad Savage closes out the list with his jazz/infused track “Hot Music” which flips the track of the same name by S.O.H.O. The result is a smooth and explorative dive into lyricism laced with social commentary, bravado and playfulness. The visual also plays with the retro-jazz vibe and uses a lot of performance shots with text-based cut scenes to match Samad’s lyrics.
