The video chronicles the rapper’s many highs and lows, juxtaposing shots of his graduation with scenes of him getting arrested and seated in the back of a police car. Between imaginative transitions and innovative effects, the adrenaline-fueled visual encapsulates the track’s poignant sentiment.
“We let them cannons spark, play with us, get punished, uh / We really had it hard, now blessings abundant,” he raps. “Can tell I hit the top, now they can’t wait to see me plummet / Like for every win, another L come punch me in my stomach.”
The single arrives after Polo’s recent completion of court orders in April, following his arrest for allegedly attacking a cop in Miami in July of last year. The case was eventually dropped in late April.
