Two music videos were filmed for the song, both directed by Bill Palladino. The first one shows the Taylor Gang crew members with animated smiley faces and wearing colored wigs while celebrating, smoking marijuana and drinking; however the video was rejected due to its content and was released on Wiz Khalifa's website. The second and official released through Atlantic Records shows several footages of Wiz Khalifa performing on-stage concerts.
