Enter the night
MTV Hive premiered the new video for Drop The Lime's "No Sleep for the Wicked" today, off his album Enter The Night. Video was directed by BREWER and shows a night time chase through the woods featuring a mix of demon zombie cheerleaders, a gun toting hero, football players spewing green ooze, a hidden onlooking DTL, and of course a lot of surprises.
Read more about the inspiration for the song and video from DTL himself, over at MTV Hive.
