The Peter Collins Campbell-directed video finds Saba rapping about his damaged relationships due to his and his friends busy schedule. The sorrowful song also tells a brief story of a man cheating on his girlfriend.
“Offend some girl I call my BFF, that ain’t no secret kept/I’m fucked, then tell my cousin how broke I was/I tried to hit a few years, she wasn’t budging
I’m bogus, left my girl for some shawty, shawty/Deserving all this lonely/You said, “Tell me, how are you sad/You got all of these friends, you got all of these fans”/I ain’t trust nobody new since 2012, I ain’t let nobody in/Jesus got killed for our sins, Walter got killed for a coat/I’m tryna cope, but it’s a part of me gone/And apparently I’m alone,” raps Saba.
“I think about that sh*t everyday,” he says. “I wish I had the answer so I can be doing that sh*t, man. But I don’t know because it’s not as easy as just saying: ‘Stop gang banging.’ It’s so bad in Chicago now that some people aren’t even making a conscious decision like, ‘I’m going to join a gang today.’ It’s kind of like that’s what you become. I’m just blessed, because I remember a time when I really thought that that was going to be the life that I was part of. I was blessed enough to be removed from that sh*t. It’s hard to pin–point how to fix a person’s way of thinking. It’s psychological at that point.”
