Watch Shane Eagle and Bas’ Music Video for ‘Ap3x [Remastered]’

Shane Eagle and Bas share the music video for their collaborative song 'Ap3x [Remastered].'

Shane Eagle just shared the visuals for his collaboration with Bas. "Ap3x [remastered]" is a remake of "Ap3x" from the South African rapper's latest EP Never Grow UpNever Grow Up.


There isn't much going on in the video for Ap3x [remastered]," just Bas and Shane performing their verses in the calm streets of Amsterdam and a few shots of them interacting with fans. The video was shot while the two artists were somewhere in Europe for Bas' Milky Way Tour, which Shane Eagle is a part of. Shane's inclusion in the tour has led to many assuming Shane was now part of Dreamville. Shane's manager, Vaughn Thiel, recently dispelled the rumor. He told Channel24:

"We haven't signed with J.Cole's record label. Twitter got ahead of itself and made that story up. We just came off a tour with Dreamville (the label) and we're very close to them but we are not signed with them. We actually independent and have our own label called Eagle Entertainment."
