Recall that a few days ago, Terry G and K-Solo went head to head in a Clash of Sounds.
Terry G and K Solo opened a can of nostalgic sardines and fed the multitude of starving individuals stuck on the video and desperately clawing away at comments.
The imagery of the night was one of long-formed camaraderie and mutual respect albeit brotherhood between Terry G and K Solo. One party celebrated the biggest hits from the other party.
At some point, K Solo got on his feet to perform the alanta when Terry G played certain hits. Other times, it was Terry G taking a step back from his laptop screen to dance while chocking his blunt between his left index and middle fingers.
Make no mistake, this was no competition. This was just two friends enjoying the great fruits of their respective runs as premier music makers for an entire country and an entire generation.
