Having grown up and made his way out of Chicago’s O Block, the rapper knew his hometown’s dangerous lifestyle well. Directed by Joán based on a treatment King Von wrote, the “Wayne’s Story” clip finds the late star narrating the tale of a teenager who gave in to the violent life of the streets.
“He think that he famous, he be on the news / He don’t give a damn, he be skippin’ school / Breakin’ all the rules, givin’ n—-s blues / School or the streets, shorty gotta choose / He picked the wrong one, shorty finna lose,” he flows.
“Wayne’s Story” was intended to become a three-part series, like King Von’s breakout “Crazy Story.” Though he was unable to complete the trilogy, the new video lives on.
