Wale told The Boombox
that he chose Brown to helm the clip because of his career as an entertainer. "I pretty much felt like the song needed a different vision," he explained. "Something only a real performer would understand. I wanted Chris to have full control."Wale added that it was Breezy who came up with the idea for the graffiti covered walls and the symbols painted in white. "The walls were another one of Chris' ideas," he said. "I couldn't use my imagination to see what he was trying to explain initially. Came out perfect."
