Helmed by ‘Lollipop’ director Gil Green and Drake, the blue-tinged, moody video is a meditative counterpart to the melancholy second single from Khaled’s upcoming Cash Money debut, ‘We the Best Forever,’ portraying the highs and lows of rap stardom, and the first collaboration of the three rap heavyweights.
“Even for stars, there’s vulnerable moments, but at the end of the day, we’re on one. This is it. This is what we dreamed about,” Drake said of the video, which was shot in his new Miami digs, and features helicopter shots of the city at night, a Styrofoam cup-rocking Drizzy, sober Weezy, a watermelon Four Loko sipping, reflective-looking Khaled overlooking his city and Rick Ross doing “what he do,” with an exposed belly, babes and a white convertible Maybach.
“The whole idea is it’s not that polished glamour side of Miami, it’s the real side,” explained Gil Green. “The idea of this video is very dark, it’s very dreary. The imagery is very seductive and moody and edgy.”
