Music video 
On August 5, 2008 a behind the scenes video of the music video was released on the Internet.
The music video for the song was shot the day after he shot the video for "What Up, What's Haapnin'" and in the music video it shows clips of T.I. in a black leather jacket and swinging a red rag in the air. Then T.I. wears a black rag around his face in the video.
According to T.I. and MTV the music video will never be released.
||We did it, and it came out hot, Louis [Vuitton] and Gucci started trippin' about it. They were saying we were infringing, in one way or another. They weren't happy about it. They didn't want it to come out. But it's hot, though. ...
On December 15 MTV did another interview asking if he'll shoot another video for the song, he responded saying
||We spoke to them, the video, it's done. But I guess it's one of those corporate things where they don't wanna be associated or affiliated with a certain type of brand. A T.I. video ain't the best look in their eyes right now. No harsh feelings. At the end of the day, it's gonna be a time when somebody is gonna have to sit at my table, and we gonna have the same type of conversations. It might be something as simple as just a party or endorsement. One thing is, the world goes around and comes back. I can take it when it's my turn.
