[Quincy Hanley courtesy Wikimedia Commons]Q is having the time of his life on what appears to be his own private island, rapping on beaches and above waterfalls, driving around in an open air off road vehicle, while attractive females of all shades "bounce" to the chorus of his track. As the video draws to an epic conclusion, he has a bonfire party and sets off fireworks over the ocean. He's the center of attention with not another brother in sight to mack on even one of the women around him.

If you're an up-and-coming artist who started from the bottom and finally made it to the top, isn't this EXACTLY the fantasy of making it big you would want to live out in your video? You can't even hate on him for flaunting his wealth or success - in fact there are barely any jewels or expensive cars to be seen - he's just living out a young boy's dream of what the height of success must feel like. That video shoot had to be the party of a lifetime, and the TDE star proved a worthy successor to Lamar.
