Dame D.O.L.L.A premiers the new music video for “Right One,” the third song from his latest album Different On Levels The Lord Allowed, featuring New Orleans-native Lil Wayne and Sacramento-born Mozzy. Although the three come from different backgrounds, they still unite by a similar story of the right choice they once made. Most likely, each of us can relate and recognize oneself in the video in one sense or another, which cannot but deeply get under the skin.

The music video, directed by Keoni Mars, is highly inspired by the legendary The Matrix trilogy. The visual starts with Dame D.O.L.L.A given the choice of red or blue pill by Morpheus, thus recreating the iconic scene from the film. The pill he picks turns out to be the “right one,” further explaining why by showing flashbacks from his rough childhood.

Soon, routinely surrounded by a dozen of females, Lil Wayne makes his appearance. While holding a styrofoam cup signature accessory, he approves of Dame’s life choice in the beginning of his verse. Further, protected by an armed crew, Mozzy shows up wrapping up the video. The rapper gives his verse in a room with stained glass windows, thus hint-referring to the essence of religion and faith in any choice one makes.
Dame D.O.L.L.A., Lil Wayne, and Mozzy didn’t come together for the song by accident, though. It is not a secret that the three were never spoiled while growing up not at all sweetly in their sketchy neighborhoods. However, “what doesn’t kill us makes us stronger,” and the rappers united to tell this simple story. The music video, highly charged with a sense of motivation, clearly explains that it might take some hardship to pass through to succeed, reinforcing the message by showing the past struggles of currently successful artists.
