Sitting on the ground he flips the camera to show himself. “I’m good, it’s just my a** hurt. I’m sitting on this concrete. My a** is … Oh my God you ever been whooped before? Whacked with a switch or a belt? That’s how my a** feel right now.”
“I’m sweating. I’m shaking. Yeah, this sh** is crazy bro.”
Showing the plane, he says, “So anybody that wanna fly private – I think it’s over for that…I’m driving or catch a train.”
They discuss some of the flight maneuvers used in the air. The group appears to think that may have attributed to the crash landing.
Davis goes on to credit the pilot. “He did good, cause we could have been over there,” he says, pointing.

One of Davis’ entourage can be heard chiming in. He says the pilot told him that he had ‘no control of the plane.’ He then exclaims, ‘Yo that sh** was God!”
It’s unclear what exactly caused the malfunction, but Davis and his friends speculate about other possibilities. Davis says, “Nah, that would have blew up! The whole plane would have blew up!”
