The Band Explains;
Who produced the video, and where was it filmed?
The video was filmed and edited by Shane Mclellan of We all collaborated on the ideas.

 How does the video compliment the song?
The song gave us a sense of psychedelic surrealism. We made a regular Hip Hop video injecting these ideas into it.

Any behind the scenes stories?
Yes! The Darth Vader piece was done by Hi crew and Fam crew at Keys on Kites Tattoo shop in New Haven, CT. It was actually being finished up that day in preparation for REO of Hi Crew Art Show.

Tell us about the ideas/ themes/ imagery used?
The floating scene in the three windowed room symbolizes the 4 elements of Hip Hop culture.

What is the message the video is trying to convey?
The song itself is abstract and sporadic. We wanted to do the same with the video, but still make it cohesive.
