Set to Lil Peep's “Downtown,” the touching video montage opens with a haunting soliloquy from the late performer, filmed mid-air while seated on a plane, which shows the emo rapper taking stock of his surging fame.
“You don't expect it to happen,” Lil Peep says in the clip, as reported by Billboard. “You don't get here without working really fucking hard. Once you're here, it's not like you're surprised to be here. Once you're here, you're like, fuck, I've done so much… Like, are you really surprised you're here?”
