Created specifically for the #1 movie Fast and Furious 6, We Own It by Wiz Khalifa, which features 2 Chainz, is a song that talks about being the absolute best you can be in whatever circumstance you might be in. The video features scenes from the movie, beautiful women, and fast cars, which makes it extremely pleasing to the eye.
Khalifa, who has been a hitmaker since his debut album Show and Prove was released in 2006, has been heavily influenced by both Jimi Hendrix and Notorious B.I.G. from the time we was a kid making mixtapes in Pittsburgh. Khalifa and 2 Chainz, who broke into music in the rap duo Playaz Circle, have already collaborated together 3 times in 2013, with Wale on Rotation, and with Ace Hood on Bugatti in addition to this song.
The video itself is a combination of a traditional soundtrack promotional music video and elements of a traditional hip-hop video. Both rappers appear wearing plenty of bling while having a good time, with cuts into movie scenes and beautiful women dancing to the funky beat this song has. What is unique about this song is that both rappers take lead roles in the release of it, making it more of a duet than a traditional lead rapper with a featuring role. The song appears at the beginning of the movie and at the start of the end credits as well, giving it plenty of cinematic exposure.
Are you willing to stand up and never run whenever someone wants to stop you from achieving your dream? Khalifa and 2 Chainz encourage you to do exactly that with We Own It. Why fear death? Fear not having the courage to try for what you dream is what Khalifa and 2 Chainz ask people in this song. Though the song is set to correspond with the action seen in the movie, the message within it is clear – it doesn’t matter what is going on in your life. You can even already have three strikes, but that shouldn’t stop you from achieving what you need to achieve. You must work at your relationships to be the best you can be. You must work hard at your job to be the very best. If you don’t do that, then you’re a coward because you are unwilling to drive fast or die.
The ultimate message that can be gleaned from this video is the fact that no matter what circumstances you are in, you can make your life be better. You can have the cash, cars, and women you want if you are willing to choose your lifestyle. You can own every moment of every day, and if you can do that, then you can do anything. You don’t have to listen to the criticisms of others because they can’t judge you – only God can judge you.
