placed in the description for all to understand :
The visual introduces Kojey in a slave state, broken and visibly worn out. The space is baron and video rarely cuts, forcing you to focus on Kojey’s rising and passionate performance. As the lyrics grow in confidence, ushering in ideas of social separation through class and race, you see Kojey at his most aggressive; dripping in opulence and melanin. Eventually he returns back to his original posture, suggesting Kojey may still feel the status of slavery in some facet.
