Need some fire new music videos in your life? Look no further because SL has you covered. Our updated Videos of The Week playlist showcases our favorites from this week! Here are 6 that you should check out:
1. MAVI x Tony Seltzer – WYD
Charlotte’s honorary mayor MAVI is back with a potent new visual after a brief intermission since his debut EP Let the Sun Talk. WYD is the second of great releases from the thoughtful MC following Mama Say earlier this year. The song is from Brooklyn producer Tony Seltzer’s latest project, Hey Tony, a new style to add to MAVI’s lyrical resume and another classic to Tony’s discography. The VFX and cinematography by Moshpxt add layers to the dreamlike journey making this video a staple in an assuredly long career for both Tony & MAVI.
2. LOS – Cry, Then Breathe // Sin
Soon to put Mississippi on a long run and southern MCs on the run for their money, LOS, the self-proclaimed “dirty south’s artery,” comes with a polished video for Sin from his last EP Starliner Pack. Alongside the clean cinematography by D.C. Boson, the video directed by LOS is paired with what may be a sneak preview into his next project with the Cry, Then Breathe prelude.
3. NOAH Ft. J. Jones – Calamari
Newark’s finest NOAH comes correct for his new single/video Calamari featuring J. Jones. Shot in LA, you drowned in nothing but good vibes in this video. With his braggadocio bars, NOAH makes you feel like you aren’t living right. The summer feels from this video is the perfect way to cap off your Summer ’21. Check out the JustinLA-directed video down below.
4. Tony Shhnow – Sewed
Emerging Atlanta star Tony Shhnow drops some new heat with his visual for Sewed. Tony flows deviously on this Detroit-type beat and backs it up with a video that fits the violent tone.
5. Ytnmatt – Follow Through
Atlanta’s own Ytnmatt new single Follow Through doesn’t have to do too much to impress listeners. Ytnmatt slides on a simple beat and can paint the picture vividly of how he lives the fast life doing what he wants.
6. Tahj Keeton – Paradox
Tahj Keeton premieres his newest song, Paradox, with a low-fi video embodying his gritty style. The song, which includes a sample from the great revolutionary Fred Hampton, feels to be a great combination of Tahj’s past work. His raw vocals and raps match perfectly with the juxtaposed synths and grimy sub-bass. Hopefully, we won’t have to wait 78 years to see what 2099 has to hold.
