You want to be rich? What are you willing to do to get there? What path will you take?
“The song is more about me, but the video is more relatable to everybody,” Kirko told MTV News on Tuesday (July 22) of the video, which was shot in Los Angeles. “Even if you ain’t lived or went through it, you know somebody that went through it. Basically, it’s like, we all wanna be rich, yeah, we know that. But how do you wanna be rich? Do you wanna take it slow and do it the right way? Or you wanna take the fast way, and nine times out of ten you f–k around and get caught up, get hurt, killed, whatever.”
“Are you willing to take the consequences of doing it the fast way? Are you willing to be patient enough to do it the right way?”
As you’ll see in the video, those consequences can be dire.
Kirko’s Atlantic Records debut, Bigger Than Me, is due out later this year.
