Music video[]

The music video premiered on September 17, 2015 on Lil Dicky's YouTube account. The video describes Dicky wanting to make the "best rap video ever" without spending any money. Throughout the video, he goes door-to-door through the mansions of Beverly Hills, asking owners if he can use their homes for a quick fifteen minutes to film it. The video shows one lady agreeing, allowing them to use her home in the video. He asked a Lamborghini dealership to borrow a car, and a boater to borrow his boat owned by Freddie Avila a.k.a. AvilaVIP and models. As the title suggests, he didn't spend a dime.[2] In fact, he earned $600 because of the product placement he exchanged everything for.[3]

Fetty Wap also appears performing onstage with Dicky in the video.[2]
