InYoFaceFilmworks film maker Damon Jamal is back with some of the northern california bay area’s biggest hitters get on-board their battleship, and prepare for war.

“Only reason n1ggas aint winnin man is because n1ggas actin like they dont wanna come together and sh*t, shit n1ggas be laughin at us n-sh*t, sh*t crazy man.”
qft Mistah Fab… If only the bay area scene would come together more not only on their songs but also on their budgets so you can share your music more with the whole world… And while your at it, start coming out with more sh1t, more mixtapes, flood the fu$king internets and create a gdamn buzz…
