In November, Inner Circle teamed with deejay-of-the-moment I-Octane and young Miami rapper Bizerk to record a reggae remix/answer to Wiz Khalifa and Snoop’s “Young Wild and Free.” An effort by the reggae veterans to connect with the new generation, this one has those feelgood, sunny-day vibes people associate with Inner Circle, and is definitely a step outside the zone in which we’re used to seeing the typically badmind-minded I-Octane.
With the song getting airplay on Miami’s 99 Jamz, and a good response on the Internet, the parties in question convened on Martin Luther King Day for a video shoot at NLPG Studio in Miami, and invited LargeUp to document the proceedings. Watch the world premiere of the video below—look out for the cameos from Flo Rida and Tony Matterhorn, among others—and check our exclusive photos from the shoot below.
