The music video was directed by the team Christopher Adams & Hana "Blaq" McDowell, who also directed the video for the song "Still".[2] Music Fan First would be his final album recorded and released independently, until he signed with Purpose Records/E1 Music to release his seventh album Mister Nice Guy.
