BRAD HALL UNBOXES VENMO 27.07.16
Venmo used be for sending money to the homies, but now you can buy shit with it. This is very exciting news. We thought it would be dope to take Brad out of his sneakerhead element to explain why Venmo is his favorite app in America. The reasons might surprise you. We went to Chicago, copped as many pieces of white gear we could find and filmed this in his living room. All the logos were done in post – except the windows, those are legit.

Whether he’s pulling out early or going all the way, Bernie Sanders has come an extraordinary distance. Was this longevity achieved by the way he spits game? How he chills with rappers? Or flies in birds?
But if there’s one thing we learned from Vermont’s OG, it’s how to put 10 toes down for these dimes. How to ride for these ladies so they’ll bring you right to that Oval Office.
From 2016 ’til Infinity, you already know – I Treat My B*tches Like Bernie.

The Chronic, Tical, Kaya, Kesha, Cheeba Cheeba, Dr. Greenthumb, Piff. Whether we Smoke Two Joints, Take Hits From the Bong or Pass the Kouchie to the left hand side, the culture loves to Stay High Day ’N Nite.
But something has come along that makes us question everything we’ve ever smoked. Something from a doctor who specializes in manipulating the brain. Where a contact high alone has the effects of an Evangelist conducting open-head surgery. It’s a high so strong it’ll have you running towards gunfire, thinking Egyptian Pyramids are throwback supermarkets and taking low key naps on stage. Dude.
Do you feel that the Big Bang Theory is the work of Satan? Do you giggle uncontrollably while speaking about mass shootings? Then you must be smoking on that Ben Carson.
Burn Down, Babylon.

With campaign season heating up, it’s time to remember why we do this hip-hop shit. To speak truth to power, give a voice to the voiceless, fight injustice with our words. And sometimes it means hollering at another man’s wife. Another man who just happens to be running for President.
While the media can’t stop talking about Donald’s latest divisive statement, John Brown offers another Trump some undivided attention. A Trump who may help make America great if only she can stop the hate. A Trump who may think she has it all, until she realizes she’s missing what’s most important – a King who can treat her the way every Queen deserves to be treated. This is for you, Melania from Yugoslavia.
A Don that can sponsor ya.

Wrote the bars for this launch spot; the moral: at the end of the day, just do you. Word to Russell.
