Usually I try my best not to post what other blogs post, this is an exception because these are some cats I know well. I'm also feeling this video...
It’s a story way too many of us have experienced; We chase and achieve the dream, only to lose and sacrifice our personal lives. Scheme goes from the studio to a private jet and finally back home, taking viewers on his journey to success. But it comes at a cost, as he may be losing out on the love of his life. The story is told throughout the song, pay close attention and see the Billion Dollar Dream story unfold.
