Game Shows His Hood Pride in ‘Pot of Gold’ Video with Chris Brown
Rapper Game gets introspective in his new video for 'Pot of Gold,' the latest single from his upcoming studio effort, 'The R.E.D. Album.' The song is about Game's commitment to never forgetting where he came from no matter how famous he becomes.
The clip is a video scrapbook as we get to look at several childhood photos of the Game when he was a baby growing up in his hometown of Compton, Calif. Those images then segue into old video footage of Game as a teenager playing youth basketball. He later raps, "Sold ten million records / Ain't leave the 'hood / It's a cold world / Everybody need a hood / And everybody doing time / Stay head strong / You still got a chance to live even though you're dead wrong."
Chris Brown sings the obligatory R&B chorus with the lyrics, "The bright lights is not for me / I close my eyes and imagine I'm home / I miss the days when life was simple / But what if I never tried to follow that rainbow / in search of the pot of gold."
At the end of the clip, we see Game as a father -- not as a rapper -- holding his two sons and baby daughter to remind fans that despite his success it doesn't mean anything without his family. He then leaves us with this poignant quote, "Materialism lives outside the lines of my reality."
Game will be going for the Gold when he drops his fourth LP 'The R.E.D. Album' on Aug. 26.
