The video for the feisty cut arrived Thursday, premiering on Variance. Featuring the Los Angeles-based pair showering themselves with play money, it opens with a spoof of Drake's "God's Plan" video in which he gave away a million dollars.
"The budget for this video was -$500," their clip reads. "We need it back soon. Tell the label."
As Wolf notes: "I get that rappers want to celebrate their success with these luxurious videos, but it's a bit overdone at this point. We make a nod to Drake's 'God's Plan' video where he gives away the whole budget to random people on the street, except we didn't have any money. So basically we're the un-coolest group on the planet; we're white rappers with no money."
While the song is anchored by an infectious hook, it addresses a serious topic of sexism and predatory behavior, especially by powerful men. "As we grow as artists, it’s amazing how many men in power think I’m going to f--- them," says Hobson, pointing to the lyrics of a Modern Midas promising to reward you only if he can touch you.
