The video was directed by Mr. Complex himself, who has stepped into the directing world (see the Allhiphop piece "Mr. Complex Enters Film World") since making his name on the indie underground scene as part of New York's Rawkus/Lyricist Lounge movement alongside peers like Pharaohe Monch, Mos Def, Talib Kweli and more. His new album Swiss Chocolate Cake drops February 14, 2012.
"Virginia native, Double XL, brings you the lead track off of his Man On Fire mixtape. XL has been steadily building his buzz and fan base over the past couple of years in the underground music scene of Virginia. Now he is trying to branch out, but first he wants to shout out all the people who have helped him along the way." - Revo
