BIG SKEEZ – NO WAY
(KEVBLINDSIDE / SUENO PRODUCTIONS)
West Sydney emcee BIG SKEEZ delivers the long-awaited visuals for 2020 Afrobeat cut ‘No Way’ elevating the already infectious track to a new level. Gorgeous drone shots of Sydney harbour interlaced with scenes of Skeez and his romantic interest. Different to the mood of most vids lately, overhead shots surrounded by a flower garden gives the whole clip a feel-good, natural aesthetic.
OKENYO – ANTHROPOLOGY

There’s something to be said about tracks that only make complete sense when accompanied by their visual – a holistic approach to the art that is embodied by Sydney creative OKENYO. Drawing upon her theatre background and NIDA honed skills, she delivers a powerful concept for new single ‘Anthropology’; a critical yet clever commentary on the portrayal and understanding of blackness in the modern world. Rewind.
CG FEZ – 4:30
ForeverEver signee CG Fez is back with new single ‘4:30′; a raw and vulnerable look into the mind of the man behind the music. Poignant and present, the rapper honestly reflects on the his story and struggles, encompassed by emotive lighting and bold visual metaphors. Another strong artistic offering from a talent carving out his own nice lane among the booming Sydney drill scene.
YOURBOYMARS – BUILT FOR THIS
(STRAIGHT NAPALM / JUSTPLAY MEDIA)
West Australia’s young prodigy YourBoyMars delivers his most polished work yet, announcing his time is now on new cut ‘Built For This’. Always repping his Habesha culture, Mars takes the opportunity to showcase his homies outta the 6K in a clip which takes you behind the scenes in the studio while he goes on hypnotic melodic runs. This might just be the one that helps him break out.
FRAKSHA – MOMENT FT. MARVIN PRIEST
Aus Rap OG and CASH MADNESS 2020 champion Fraksha is back with the bars in another Melbourne street cut shot by MurkdOutMedia. This time linking up with fellow Brit Marvin Priest who comes through with a classic UK-patois infused hook, ‘Moment’ has all the right elements to keep Frak’s loyal base of supporters well fed for the time being.
NELSON DIALECT & NUTONE – FANGS FT S.I.T.H
Adelaide-born now Bronx based emcee Nelson Dialect drops the video for ‘Fangs’ from new album ‘Opal Mind’ with French producer NuTone. Intricate wordplay and meticulous flows on show as Dialect and NY rapper S.I.T.H trade verses in an homage to 90s golden era type hip-hop.
