Directed by Peter Adler, who also provided the animation, the visual brings Banks’ words to life as he rattles off each bar.

“I really enjoyed writing this song. I wanted to capture the energy of today while keeping my lyrical integrity,” Banks tells HipHopDX. “I feel like I did that with this record. Shouts to Malik Ninety Five for the beat.”
