The music video, which is a story of forbidden love and betrayal, was shot in Kingston, Jamaica during the week of April 12, 2010. It was helmed by Anthony Mandler, director of the "Over
" clip. The video features dancehall artist Mavado as the gang leader, and Drake's real life squeeze, professional model Maliah Michel, plays the leading lady. Drake told MTV News: "We went to Kingston. We went to this 'hood. They call it the 'gully' side. It's bad out there, real bad. They had 'Young Money' sprayed on the gates, 'Drake and Wayne,' 'cause I came to shoot the video out there. I'm talking about you drive by people's homes, they had 'Drake,' 'Young Money,' 'Drake, Welcome Here,' 'Drake We Love You' - crazy sh--, man. It was so crazy. This dude was like, 'Original Weezy tha God! You tha boss! Weezy tha God!' It's crazy. They love us, 'cause we show love out there."
