Shouts to DJ Hustlenomics on the assist. The finished version of “Understand Me” is to feature Young Jeezy, but that merch will drop at a later date via DJ Drama. So for now, try to understand the young man who is now verified. Expect some big news from Keef in the coming days.
The Throne have been quietly preparing their latest visual with the assistance of director Romain Gavras in Prague, but a Czech Republic-based website has been reporting pictures and video from the set. No Jay or ‘Ye sightings yet, but there’s definitely plenty of action to go around.
The second day was recorded in the street Jungmanova at Wenceslas Square, then everything moved to Legion Bridge at the National Theatre. In Jungmanova street broke shop windows, throwing smoke bombs and ran a classic fight with police.The Legion Bridge demolition was a police car, which eventually bang. The third day was chosen only the best about 60 thugs, filmed in the street theater, where he filmed a scene with a horse (see video below). Another scene took place even on the roof of the National Theatre. A final scene took place at New Square scenes. The shooting was everywhere like lasers and lighting effects. Unfortunately, the recording showed Kanye or Jay.
More video and pictures below. Props to Nav on the heads up.
Last week, the Chicago hip-hop community was up in arms over allegations that the Chicago Police Department had barred the L.E.P. Bogus Boys from performing alongside ASAP Rocky on May 3 at the House of Blues.
On Friday, the CPD issued a statement claiming no involvement in the removal of the Bogus Boys. In turn, L.E.P. released the email sent to them by House of Blues reps, stating “local authorities have come do us after doing some research on LEP and made it clear that we are not going to be able to have them on the bill for A$AP Rocky.”
Well today, the House of Blues admitted to the Chicago Tribune that they were behind the ban, and the local authorities had no involvement. An interesting turn of events, for an extremely bizarre and twisted tale. Was it really that serious?
