Following a mafia-style-meeting in the middle of Nevada desert, the video sees the MMG duo take over Las Vegas - ciroc flows, money falls, and girls dance as they live that casino-crime lifestyle.

Meanwhile, the Philly rapper has been working on numerous projects including his 'Tony's Story' novel and his forthcoming 'Dreamchasers 3' mixtape. (Drop Out UK)
