Best Music Videos of the Week: Gorillaz, Ta’East, Boogie and More

This week, we’ve got new heat from Charlie Heat & Ant Beale, Calez, Ta’East, Boogie, Young Pari$, and so many others. But best of all, we’ve got a new Gorillaz music video for a brand new song from the band. End your week browsing at these solid visual entries down below.


Young Pari$ – “Blak Amerikkka”

Houston’s Young Pari$ took this past MLK Day as a solid opportunity to drop a video for his single “Blak Amerikkka.” The track is a powerful song about the issues black people face in America face on the daily and the people who tend to ignore those problems. It’s a painfully honest cut that slaps listeners in the face with absolute truth. The video is black and white footage of racial profiling and Young Pari$ rapping through the streets, directed by ShotByDread.

Charlie Heat & Ant Beale – “WTN”

We all know Charlie Heat is dope already, but Ant Beale is kind of a newcomer to the scene. Thankfully, he’s in great hands with Charlie Heat, and he’s proven himself a worthy rapper with the duo’s collaborative EP, No Rain No Flowers. This visual for “WTN” comes from the EP and shows Ant Beale having a good ass time, counting stacks and hanging out. It’s got that vintage feel to it, thanks to the VHS-esque camerawork.

Calez – “Problematic”

Calez dropped an obvious DIY music video for “Problematic.” In the same vein as Young Pari$, Calez drops a video depicting black skin as being “Problematic” to the majority of Americans today. Calez raps in front of a green screen full of backdrops of our biggest and most legendary black heroes. The visual is directed by William S Goldstein and comes straight from Calez’ Baby mixtape.

Wifisfuneral – “Antisocial Club”

Florida continues to put out some of the coolest southern sounds in hip-hop and Wifisfuneral is certainly driving in that lane. His sound is ever-changing and on “Antisocial Club,” it’s apparent that the artist is carving his own Florida legacy. Watch the visual up above, directed by Nasser Boulaich, and be on the lookout for When Hell Falls to drop sometime soon.

2 Chainz – “Good Drank” ft. Gucci Mane and Quavo

2 Chainz, Gucci Mane and Quavo seem to have lost themselves in the 1920s. In “Good Drank,” the three rappers hang out in vintage cars and drink bottles of the good ole purple stuff. It’s a nod to prohibition-era business, coming straight from three of the south’s hottest emcees.

Chaz Bundick Meets The Mattson 2 – “Star Stuff”

Toro y Moi and The Mattson 2 have connected to create a dual force properly named Chaz Bundick Meets The Mattson 2. Directed by Harry Israelson, this music video for “Star Stuff” is a spacey visual of a bowler playing in an alley. There are loads of neon colors and psych-pop goodness to be had up above.

Mark Clennon – “Blood”

Crooner Mark Clennon is the center of his music video for “Blood.” The single, straight off last year’s When the Smoke Clears, shows Clennon dancing around a dark, abandoned industrial complex and singing his ass off. Epher Heilland directs the singer’s solo dance routine up top.

Ta’East – “WithTheShit”

These visuals for this new Ta’East track are perfectly aligned with its haunting, eerie beat and hard-hitting raps. “WithTheShit” succeeds with its creepy strings sample from the score of 2013’s alien horror movie, Under the Skin. The visual features Ta’East repeatedly waking up every day at 7:20AM and encountering a person in a ski mask who’s out to kill him. Every time he’s killed, he wakes up to die again. It’s a cool concept given life from director Jerome D.

Boogie – “Sunroof” ft. Dana Williams

Boogie shows love to his girls, neighborhood and friends with his new video for “Sunroof,” featuring vocals from Dana Williams. It’s a happy video for a bright song, delivering a calming west coast flow and showing appreciation for the women and city of LA.

MELT – “Rewind”

New Jersey’s MELT released a nostalgic visual for “Rewind.” The music video is full of old school clips spliced in with live footage of the band’s practice space. The single comes from their latest record, Riffer, which dropped back on Danger Collective/Top Shelf Records.

Gorillaz – “Hallelujah Money” ft. Benjamin Clementine

Gorillaz have teased at their comeback for months now, but it’s finally here. The first taste of some new Gorillaz came with this music video for “Hallelujah Money,” featuring poet and singer Benjamin Clementine. It’s a ballad, politically charged and absolutely targeted at Donald Trump. This video released yesterday on the eve of Inauguration Day, but it’ll feel appropriate to blast year-round, for sure.

Kranium – “We Can” ft. Tory Lanez

After heading on tour with each other, Kranium and Tory Lanez linked up for a raunchy song that has a sensual beat from Sakpase and DJ Marley Waters. The video appropriately features both artists dancing with some women in the shadows.
