Speaking on the inspiration for the video, Near Dogg said, “The idea of the video came from the title itself of the track, that is why I choosed to shoot it in a garage to show that, where ever you are, you can still do what you were born for“. Choosing a garage to shoot this music video is a reflection of the ghetto. Some listeners claim that Near Dogg’s lyrics always against the police which make him out of low, but the artist “You might think that I’m out of low by listening to my lyrics, but the truth is I wanted to say that I’m creative and successful in what I’m doing, nothing against anybody”.

This is not the end, as soon as his new single dropped, he started working on his next new project as he mentioned on instagram. “Many new project in the kitchen”
