Mau P“It’s amazing to finally have a visual version of Drugs From Amsterdam and even more amazing to have it produced and directed by one of my closest friends Tommy Reerink! I believe the video really shows the chaos that the Amsterdam nightlife can be and I love the idea of it being shown through a unique perspective like the taxi driver. Obviously a massive shout out to MC Stretch for his impeccable acting skills behind the wheel.”
