Check out https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RunNZ5Ww9hc&feature=youtu.be to view the video now.

As he was making his way from Coachella to Miami, Action Bronson ha

Underneath the URL it reads, "The views of this website are cosigned by the gawds. If you're not feeling it, you can go behead thyself."
