In the video, which chooses symbolism over performance in the visuals, Blueprint and Illogic appear as salesmen carrying lugging their wares around in big briefcases. “Willing To Bleed” compliments the album’s underlying theme of artists who struggle with the balance of real world responsibilities with the seemingly glamorous world of an hip hop entertainer. Speaking on the suitcases in the video concept, Greenhouse states, “it represents the past experiences and burden that each artist carries with them. You’ll see in the video how the characters have no choice but to bring this baggage with them wherever they go and any time they try to distance themselves from it, it inevitably returns to them.”
