Dexter Navy presents us a video of two worlds set in NYC and London – each dominated by A$AP Rocky and Skepta. Beautifully contrasted at times with clever trickery and an omnipresent look which oozes cool.

Just a year after Gorillaz' star-studded fifth album Humanz was released, here comes a sixth - The Now Now, released later this month - and a new video for the first single Humility, with Jamie Hewlett's characters (including a new one) animated by Tim McCourt and Max Taylor at The Line.
Old school hip-hop video vibes with a modern twist for Royce Da 5'9, guest starring Eminem, directed by James Larese.
With VFX and design by TIMBER amplifying the lyrical flow (it has a similar feel to the work of RUFFMERCY), the black and white performance set-up works well. Comes as a nice surprise when you realise that is the motionless Eminem is not actually a cutout.
London-based animator Andy Baker does a great job bringing the brilliantly bold cartoonish illustrations of Robin Velghe - aka Rhymezlikedimez - to life for NxWorries in the supercool video for Lyk Dis.
Baker and Velghe take the duo - that's Anderson.Paak and Knxwledge - on a southern Californian roadtrip where everything appears just a bit suggestive to their one-track minds...
Gerald Sagoe turns a London estate into a beautiful battleground for Kojo Funds.
Excellent black and white photography and super slow motion turns a mass fight into a metaphor. Sagoe's video for Funds' Stallin' is an impressive music video directing debut.
Jeremi Durand's powerful video for French rapper Keny Arkana imagines a near-future society at breaking point.
Referencing the sentiment of wilful blinkeredness when the world around you is going to hell – as expressed in Paul Misraki’s 1935 song from which it takes its title - Arkana's Madame la Marquise calls out modern society’s indifference to the destructive path we’re on.
Gyles Bartle leaves his local cornershop and straight into a more dreamlike, cinematic version of reality.
This is a journey in mixed formats by Nadira Amrani for You. And as night turns to day, one song fades out and another begins...
Harry Cauty takes us on a day in the life of cheery London rapper Big Zuu, in the video for B.I.G.
