Welcome back to our definitive guide to the best music videos of the week, your only must-visit destination for the best visuals in the scene. This week, we had a whole bunch of sick videos to choose from and we’ve landed a very strong 5 as a result. Pree 5 of the most creatively directed music videos below, brought to you by our guy Griff.
Nehmy – “LIT”
Starting this week’s choices off is a relatively unknown South London rapper, going by the name of Nehmy. His track “LIT” – which is very dope in itself by the way – has one of the best music videos we’ve seen in a hot minute. Directors NTPWR find all kinds of original ways to bring the block to the camera and it’s definitely got us paying attention.
Chip – “Bluku Bye Bye Bye”
With Radar Radio fast becoming grime’s new spiritual home, Chip got the cameras rolling there for the latest video from his ‘Rap Vs Grime‘ mixtape, during the aptly titled Bluku Bye Bye set (shout out CSM). With cameos from all generations of the grime scene, including Stormzy, D Double E and AJ Tracey, Chip and B Dot perfectly capture the essence of radio and the heart of the genre.
Nafe Smallz – “No Regular Wave” (ft. Fuzay)
Luton repping artist Nafe Smallz is preparing to blow, just last week shelling down Charlie Sloth’s Fire In The Booth. Thankfully he’s got the musical catalogue to back the hype, including this new drop “No Regular Wave” with Fuzay. It’s got a filtered visual, adding something a little extra to the sunset the MC’s are barring in.
Scrufizzer – “Dumb Bars” (ft. Matix)
West London’s Scrufizzer has a work rate that is hard to be bested, as he consistently puts out bangers, often with videos too. His latest self-produced track “Dumb Bars” is absolutely insane: ludicrously energetic and most importantly and simply, fun, the videos capture it’s energy dead on the mark.
Footsie – “Hot Water” (ft. Giggs)
Footsie and Giggs team up for a very hot collaboration, with the Hollowman unleashing that killer new flow of his in full force. The Chas Appeti-directed video is dark and claustrophobic, as the pair drill out their bars from the trap house. Naturally, Newham General team mate D Double shows up here too, adding to his weeks cameo count.
