Rating: 0/5

Swa Lee and Slim Jxxmi are usually a team, having the same attitude toward their video. However, there are varying point of views by the two of them. Slim Jxmmi is in his element, holding the leopard print umbrella and hanging out with bikini-clad women. He is egged on by several friends to partake in the women who have made themselves available.

Swa Lee, on the other hand, prefers to smoke marijuana by himself and write music. He dances with the four women on the beach and goofs off with them. He seems to realize it’s only a video and not a lifestyle. He wants to focus on the music and treat the women he meets with decency.

With half of the video being a straightforward party with a rapper and his entourage, the other part mocks it, although an agreement couldn’t be reached as to what to do and both sides needed to be appeased.
