Pairing monochromatic visuals to a song offer the music video an air of authenticity to the lyrics; however, only when used correctly. The music video, shot by Fine Pictures, features the rapper walking along a lonely road, clad in all black, save for his Nike kicks and the white embroidery of his beanie, in addition to a camo print backpack. The camera work features 360-degree views of the rapper performing along the path with minimal post-production effects and editing.
