Promoting the TV release of New York Minute on September 11th, Gasface pays a visit to the DownTown Boogie crew (biggest radio show in Europe) at the Swizz National Radio & Television compound, in Lausanne.
Following A Night In Alphabet City live series, the Black Moon frontman talks about his “Buckshot Shorty” days, coming up with Mobb Deep, getting chewed out by Hav’s mom and becoming a man thanks to a famous BK producer’s sister. Yes, you read that right. – MGF
Attention everybody who tries to capture footage of a show: this is the way you do it. So the next time you decide to whip out a camera instead of enjoying the show like a normal person make sure you grab a homeboy, tell him/her to stand on another side of the room and record while you record from the other side. Then, go home and edit that shit to at least make it look 5% as cinematic as what MGF has done with this.
Or, just don’t record shit at all and enjoy the show. I mean, that’s the reason you’re there right?
For Media Gasface’ next trick, they take to the Internets themselves and launched their own corner…
