adidas city series - Philadelphia and Atlanta

Here's a short from the HVW8 excursion to Philly and Atlanta last month in celebration of the adidas city series. Black Spade rocked the live set, Dan DSTRBO did the painting and Ty G with Rich Medina, in Philly, and with Daz-I-Kue and Karl Injex, in ATL, laced the tunes. Lot's of fun, BIG UPS to Taayib, Kaos and everyone who made the mini tour happen. Shot and edited by the Frolab.
