So the essential concept of this video, featuring many Huntsville luminaries, is that going to the club can get kinda wild so you should probably document it with pictures, even if that means that you're sitting on a whole bunch of photos of dudes lighting blunts with money. More importantly though, it works as a good representation of what exactly is going on in Huntsville right now. Ominous beats that sound like they were created with the weight of all of pop music in mind. No sample is too weird, no sound too off-base. It's an anything goes attitude that makes their music so exciting and interesting as a ready-made scene worth documenting. DB49 (Drunk Before 9) is a great synthesis of this—grabbing both dudes that are well on their way to success (G-Side's ST 2 Lettaz) as well as up-and-coming office favorites like Kristmas—and throwing them all into dimly lit club situations. If we caught this super late night on BET Uncut with no previous knowledge of anyone involved we'd still be stoked.
