Antwon's new video for 'Helicopter' is rooted in Bay Area connections


San Jose rapper Antwon's new video for "Helicopter" (directed by Brandon Tauszik) splits time between the Steve McQueen classic Bullitt (1968), filmed on the mean streets of San Francisco, and present-day Oakland; the modern shots are of Antwon and friends including Squadda B and Mondre MAN of Oakland's Main Attrakionz hanging out around the city, along with some gratuitous Sriracha pouring.
