Vince Staples is an up and coming Hip-Hop artist who released his album Summertime '06 last year in 2015, and got a lot of buzz from that.

Today, Staples shared the video for his song "Lift Me Up", from his album Summertime '06. The video showcases his hometown of Long Beach, California, and the realities he faced growing up.

The video has him levitating above the city of Long Beach showing that although people, fame, and success may have elevated him to a different level, he doesn't forget where he came from. The chorus of the song describes how he felt and still does about certain situations he faced growing up.

"See, this weight is on my shoulders, pray Jehovah lift me up/ And my pain is never over, pills and potions fix me up/ I just want to live it up, can a motherfucker breathe?/ Life ain't always what it seems, so please just lift me up/ Lift me up, lift me up, lift me up, lift me up, lift me up/ Lift me up, lift me up, lift me up, lift me up, lift me up/ Lift me up, lift me up, lift me up, lift me up, lift me up"
