BARNEY ARTIST – OUI 2

808INK – JEEP CHEROKEE [VIDEO]

808INK follow ‘45 With Sam‘ with another visual from last year’s ‘Hungry‘ LP.  Opting to eschew the obvious route, the duo play pool and hang out in a launderette rather than posing next to the SUV-producer’s most successful vehicle.  The video comes just as 808INK & Mumblez Black Charmer’s headline show at London’s Kamio.  Stream below via YouTube.
