The music video, directed by Hype Williams, consists mainly of The D.O.C., Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre driving and riding in lowrider cars (a reference to the "Nuthin' But a 'G' Thang" music video from The Chronic album). It features a cameo from Eminem, seen chasing a group of females across a beach when Dre raps, "Kept my ear to the streets, signed Eminem, he's triple platinum, doing fifty a week." Xzibit is also shown driving a car towards the end of the music video.
