5ive Star Nicki Minaj music video
Last week’s top music videos featured tracks from Mariah Carey, Gramatik, The Knife, Mina, DMD, and Exit State. This week, we’ve got masterfully crafted cinematic shorts for tracks from Lushlife, Contrakids, Homedboy Sandman, and Klassik along with tributes to Nicki Minaj and Planet of the Apes (with soundtrack by Benny Benassi).

Don’t forget to check out “D-Tour“, our live music series that featured performances from Sky Ferriera, Gold Fields, Funeral Suits, and Robert DeLong at Republic Live in Austin during SXSW.

“Magnolia” by Lushlife (Directed by Lamar+Nik)

Jesse Lamar High and Nik Harper are directors. They are awesome. This whole post could’ve been comprised of their work but I felt the need to spread the love. Be on the lookout for them to be featured each week over the next month.
