Man. Dawreck’s b-day party at Abbey Pub last week looked like one to remember. GMG was in the building. Drama Ward was in the building. A whole lot of other people were in the building…

Yes, you get to see Buk perform his verse on “Adrenaline Rush” and sure T does it at every show — but have you ever seen them do the Trax-produced classic together? Perhaps — but it’s still a rarity. Check out the footage if you missed out above.

Directed by Dylan Johnson & Zach More

A few weeks ago we brought you the Mp3 for this joint from Walter J., BainesGod and Trugoy — and today the video treatment has been unleashed. This video is super dope, though. Puppets, capers, dope landscapes — it’s a very well done visual — and thankfully features a ton of creativity. Two thumbs up all around. Watch and learn how to make a video above. Don’t be salty. No shade.
