Music video

The music video for "Back Like That" was directed by Ray Kay and Mike Caruso. The video illustrates the deterioration of the relationship between Ghostface and his girlfriend after she cheats on him with a man with whom he has beef. Over time, Tony regains his wounded pride and eventually kicks her out of their apartment. As the story draws to a close, the man she cheated on him with walks into a set-up where Tony's friends lie in wait. He promptly turns around to run away and they all give chase. The video then concludes with a "to be continued..."


The official remix featuring Kanye West & Ne-Yo was produced and later included on Ghostface's sixth album More Fish & his eighth album Ghostdini: Wizard of Poetry in Emerald City.

A second version of the remix has a new verse by Ne-Yo, different from his verse of the main remix, was included on Ghostface's compilation album GhostDeini the Great.
