Whether it's a new track or a music video serving as a public service announcement, everything Diplo touches seems to turn to gold. Heavyweight producers Yellow Claw and LNY TNZ teamed up with Diplo alongside Waka Flocka Flame on "Techno" last month, and now we get the visual interpretation of this tune. This dark video depicts the path drugs take from the source to the end user ultimately dying as a direct result from these drugs. With the amount of drug-related casualties that have been happening at music festivals and shows over the past couple years, this video serves as a P.S.A. to all music fans as the video ends with "Drugs Are Not Worth The Risk" displayed at the end of the video.
