Mega has a lot of knowledge & experience in this industry and being able to work with & hear his stories was pretty chill. We respect the boldness he has to produce the darker graphics in this industry, we got a chance to peep out what's in store for future seasons be on the look out. Shout out to Mega & his crew, definitely laid back dudes that showed us love, it is appreciated.
