This song finds Mineo full of self-doubt as he rhymes sarcastically: You will never write a verse like Kendrick Never be to rap what rock got from Hendrix Top 10 alive, you will never be mentioned Why aim so high? Won't survive the trenches Mineo goes on to surmise that his only rap competition is himself. "My biggest enemy is typically me," he told MTV News. "I'm my biggest problem, I'm the thing that stops me most from doing what I need to do to be successful or to achieve success in whatever area of life."
Mineo shot one half of the song's music video in the streets of New York City and the other half on a green screen. It finds the rapper battling himself in scenes that he drew from one of his favorite childhood video games Mortal Kombat. "There's two versions of me and I'm ultimately fighting myself, in combat with myself, trying to overcome myself," he explained to MTV News. "The whole video has this kind of funny, cheesy, animated feel to it," Mineo added. "No matter how successful you become… there's always that sense that you could be better. I think I beat myself up more than anyone else."
