Nicki, Drake and Wayne recently got together to shoot the official video for “Only”. I don’t see Chris Brown or any Nazi regalia anywhere so I would imagine this clip will be somewhat less controversial than the lyric video.

Video: Mr. Green ft. A$AP Ferg & Nigel Sylvester – Chinatwon (Live From The Streets)

Friday, October 24th, 2014

For the latest installment of Mr. Green’s “Live From The Streets” series, in which he samples sounds from the environment and uses them to create a completely unique instrumental, he hooks up with Trap God A$AP Ferg. After grabbing some snips from a street performer in Chinatown playing an erhu, plus some bike sounds from BMX star Nigel Sylvester, Green makes an honest to goodness trap banger for Ferg to spit over. The result is one of the illest tracks I’ve ever heard produced on “Live From The Streets”.
