    The video is a carefully produced collage of archival footage, performances on tour and live tracking shots of him spitting over the Oh No produced track.  With the video clips from his collaborations with Kanye West and Mos Def to rocking stages today this also serves as a nice primer for those who don’t appreciate the impact he’s had on the rap music game.
