Ish Cepeda's "Gas Giants" Premiere Photos

We all love a big premiere with our favorite names on the marquee and a packed theater full of cheering maniacs. We also love a bring-your-own-projector affair where all you need is a crew and a wall. Ish went with the latter on Beverly Hills Boulevard for his new Gas Giants vid. You already know we were fuckin’ with it
