He aint never say yes and he aint never say no. But if you notice the records he do get on, he don’t shoot that many videos. He don’t really shoot that many videos for himself. I was grateful to have the verse and the opportunity to work with somebody I’m inspired by and look up to. Just to get him on the record was a major accomplishment”

The music video premiered in late June 2014, on DJ Khaled’s official YouTube VEVO channel.
