TT The Artist feat. STARRZ - PAYROLL(OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO)

It’s the year 4020 in Baltimore and humans, cyborgs, androids and alien worlds have collided. On the weekends partygoers and patrons gather at the livest strip club to party. Rapper, Starrz, one of the club’s top ballers  finds his eyes set on a young half human half android stripper named Cherry 84. Seducing him with her technology she sends the love struck baller into a trance. Cyborg Luna played by TT The Artist  runs a no nonsense policy for all her ladies and is quick to shake up the club with sassy feminine powers.
