Masspike Miles ft. Rick Ross – Love Drunk

This video is on FIRE! (literally)
My second one for Masspike Miles ft. Rick Ross.
This video tells the story of a nightmare in Chinatown. Miles meets an evil temptress who gets him to do unimaginable evils, he ends up in the strangest places not knowing how he got there. There is a surprise twist at the end. Rick Ross is performing his verse in a massive Buddhist temple.

Styles P. ft. AZ & Large Pro – The Hardest

This video is an experiment in light painting with time lapse photography. Teaming up with GRL, we explored various light painting techniques and developed cheap time slicing rig dubbed the Ghetto Matrix.
This video was started before all those light painting phone commercials which basically played the effect out completely…I was inspired by Pika Pika, PIPS lab, and of course GRL…
Also utilizes GRL laser tag technologies, and a shitload of timelapses in the rain all over nyc…
We put the instructions on how to build a Ghetto Matrix online and Won an award for it!

Enter the Ghetto Matrix
