Music video[edit]

The two music videos were directed by Fat Cats[1] and premiered April 28, 2008 on BET's 106 & Park. It features Young Jeezy rapping the first verse and has cameos from Chingy, Ne-Yo, Jazze Pha and Jermaine Dupri. The video also features New York Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora. There are two versions of the music video. The first was an edited version, the directors cut, while the second, more explicit version featured The-Dream mouthing the explicit chorus and back-up dancers making explicit hand gestures toward the camera.

Remixes[edit]

The official remix features Young Jeezy and was used for the video. An additional unofficial remix titled "I Fucked Your Girl" was released by G-Unit and featured former member Young Buck. The remix was made to diss Fat Joe. In this version, everyone except Lloyd Banks and Young Buck use the auto-tune effect. Other unofficial remixes followed from Fabolous and Jagged Edge. T-Pain sings an interpolation of the song on Jamie Foxx's hit "Blame It" on Foxx's Intuition (2008).
