Music video[edit]

The music video portrays a simplified biography of O'Neal's early days living in Newark, New Jersey. It discusses his estrangement from his biological father Joseph Toney, with whom he has expressed no desire for reconciliation. O'Neal refers to his stepfather Phillip A. Harrison with the lyrics, "Phil is my father."

The song is referenced by Roger in the season Season 7 of American Dad! during the episode "Seasons Beatings"
