2nd version is the explicit one with Makaveli and the Outlawz dressed as cops shooting at Biggie & Puffy, killing other parties meeting with Biggie while the former two make it out alive. Half of it was officially released on Death Row Uncut DVD. The video uses the same actors to portray Puff Daddy & Biggie as the same as "Hit 'Em Up" and "2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted". Puff Daddy is called "Buff" & Biggie is called "Pig" & "Piggie". During the music video Biggie begs Puff to pull over to buy food but Puff refuses. The music video was directed by Gobi Nejad.
