One things for sure, two things for certain, the L.E.P. Bogus Boys ran Chicago on Labor Day 2010. I may even have to declare this date Bogus Boy Day – a new Chicago Holiday. Alongside Polar Bear LaFlare, L.E.P. hit spots all across the City to shoot the video for “Handlin’ My Business”, which will be featured on Don’t Feed The Killaz Vol. 3, that drops on Halloween.
Da Visionaryz and Brandon “N2ition” Riley teamed up to direct this one of a kind clip, that features Gucci and Count trading bars over a Hi Tek-produced MONSTER. By the time I made it over to the shoot, L.E.P. and Gucci had completely shut down the Westside, within minutes of Gucci’s tour bus pulling in the parking lot next door to Uncle Remus’ on Madison & Central. The whole neighborhood came out, including the cops from down the street and some dude with an iguana (?). Hell, the staff from Uncle Remus’ even came over to see what all the fuss was about and passed out t-shirts to the artists, directors and onlookers. Once L.E.P. and Gucci emerged from the tour bus (which had LaFlare’s face plastered all over it – not exactly inconspicuous) the crowd erupted as if it was the damn Beatles. It was crazy. I’ve honestly never seen anything like it. Cops had to eventually put up yellow tape to keep the crowd under control – but all and all it was peaceful and pleasant shoot.
Bo Deal, Wooh Da Kid, NBA hopper Bobby Simmons, Morocco Vaughn and many others came out to support and get cameos. I’m looking forward to seeing what Da Visionaryz and Brandon do with this clip – it’s going to be something serious. No Big Mike.
