Tef Poe and Rockwell Knuckles debut new video

The second video from Tef Poe's latest magna carta Cheer For The Villain was just released. Titled "Hog in the Lane," the video features Rockwell Knuckles and is clearly a classic Saint Louis street video. Tef and Rocky didn't even put out that much notice. It was kind of like, ‘Yo, "Hog In The Lane video," be here, boom,' and this is the organic result. It really shows the city's flair and the love for its artists. Shot entirely on the North Side streets, it has cars, chips, drinking in cars, Pitbull puppies, mannequins, OG's in suits, a snake, and a John Deer golf cart on Daytons. Any Questions?
