In the last known footage of the two prior to Waka Flocka and Gucci Mane‘s beef, VICE’s Wilbert Cooper had the privilege of chilling with the two Brick Squad members backstage last October at New York City’s Irving Plaza, where Waka was headlining. Watch as they share their shrubbery and Hennessy with Cooper before, between and after their sets. Somehow, he was even able to get in an interview before Gucci and Waka offered him$2,000 to finish the bottle.

Wilbert had this to say of his experience:

Now, I’ve been smoking blunts since I was 11 years old. And I grew up in the suburbs, so I’m no stranger to bongs, bowls, and weird white-people Isht like vaporizers. But nothing prepared me for how high I was about to become after hitting Gucci’s burner. The closest thing I can compare it to is being pushed headfirst down a K-hole. The second after the smoke left my lungs, I couldn’t even form a complete sentence. Andy was whispering in my ear, trying to tell me what questions to ask because I was just standing there like a zombie with the microphone limp in my hand. And then everything just went black.
