The short film, which was directed by Nabil and runs for a little over 5 minutes, is part of YouTube Music's Artist Spotlight Stories series. Cudi previously released an entry in the series featuring his MOTMIII track "She Knows This." Both short films feature clips from the 2006 film The Pursuit of Happyness with Will and Jaden Smith.

Man on the Moon III: The Chosen is projected to debut at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 with 150-175K album-equivalent units. The album, Cudi's seventh, boasted features from Pop Smoke, Skepta, Phoebe Bridgers, and Trippie Redd.
While speaking with Tenet star John David Washington for Wonderland, Cudi called Man on the Moon III the "most important album of my career thus far." He added, "It's 10 years of anticipation for this album. If this album fails, if this sucks, I'm over! I'm gonna go live on an island somewhere…"
Looks like it's more than safe to say that Cudi's not going to that island.
