The “Been About It” video features recreation of the album artwork of the most iconic hip-hop albums ever released! “Been About It is a homage to the music that raised me. An homage to the culture and the creators who paved a way for hip hop to be a global phenomenon that I get to be a part of,” shares Andy! “We’ve lost so many iconic hip-hop artists in the past few years and sadly, we wait until people die to give them their props! Lecrae and I recorded this song and a dope video to pay tribute to the artists who have impacted hip-hop and inspired us!” His partner-in-rhyme, Lecraeadds,“Andy and I are products of Hip Hop. These are some of the albums that shaped our childhood. I especially loved remaking the Tupac album cover. He was iconic.”
The first time the public would see the “Been About It” video was at the Atlanta private VIP listening session. The day before the album release, Lecrae and Andy traversed the Atlanta Beltline, playing the Never Land II album for random people while capturing reactions to the original “Been About It” video! At a VIP Meet N’ Greet during The Return To Never Land II Tour he’s currently on, Andy, privately showed snippets from the video. The reactions from everyday people on the belt-line and the texts he received from influencers and media friends energized him!
