It's hard to say if this was intended, but the video for Keys N Krates' "Understand Why" has some dope parallels to the plight of artists trying to get their name out there. In the clip, we find a girl who is determined to show her martial arts instructor her skills. Sure, she's talented, but not only is he more skilled, but he has no problem putting her in her place in the class. Over the course of the video, her determination is what drives her, and in a world where it's so easy to buy clicks and get fake praise, it's the artists that keep their nose to the grindstone and stay in training mode that truly get ahead. Not saying that EDM is a martial arts tournament (although that'd be kind of ill), but there are some themes in this clip that should help you "understand why" this is a marathon, not a sprint.
