Video: Frank Leone – Beware

Directed & edited by King Supertramp

Back like he left something is Frank Leone, who gives us yet another joint from his upcoming opus, EnterWILD. And guess what people, he’s very mad (word to the Mad Rapper.) In today’s eerie clip, a disgruntled Leone flexes and erupts about everything in the world he’s been mad at since breaking ground on his EnterWILD album.

Juxtaposing the positive hopefulness of his last record “ACROSS the EARTH,” today the #EnterWILD introduction has officially arrived in the form of “BEWARE,” a self-directed & edited one-take music video detailing everything that’s pissed him off about the world throughout the timeline of #EnterWILD’s creation, from the violence of Chicago to the ignorance of twitter and its inhabitants. The cinematographer requested his name be removed due to its “Offensive nature.”

Check out the dope feature on Franklyn over at Interview.

Berg has had a big year from a production and TV standpoint, but early this morning things took a turn for the worse as he was arrested in NYC for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend, Masika Tucker.

Says TMZ:

Yung Berg — the rapper who stars on “Love and Hip Hop Hollywood” — was arrested in NYC early Wednesday for allegedly brutalizing his girlfriend, and the charge is “obstruction of breathing” … TMZ has learned.

Berg — aka Hitmaka — and the woman were at the Gershwin Hotel when they got in an argument … where he allegedly grabbed her by the neck, threw her to the floor, dragged her by her hair and hit her in the face.

Apparently, the neck grab was enough for the breathing obstruction charge.

When cops came, the woman had bruises and complained she was in pain.

He’s currently in custody.
