For many of us out there, Love & Basketball is the most iconic love story of our time. If you were somehow in the dark in the year 2000, the Gina Prince-Bythewood-directed drama tells the tale of childhood friends Monica (Sanaa Lathan) and Quincy (Omar Epps) as they grow up and develop romantic feelings for one another—all on the basketball court, of course. In Lil Durk’s latest music video for “My Beyoncé,” the rapper recreates the entire film with co-star Dej Loaf. Never in my life have I wanted someone to say “shawty my Beyoncé” more than I did after watching this. (Yes, this single line trumped over the entire “I’ll play you.” “For what?” “Your heart.” exchange.) Enjoy living through all the flashbacks in the montage, above.
