Music videoEdit

The music video shows the band members, along with many unknown people, dancing in a hip hop club. All these people are later shown in a variety of urban settings (such as a cornfield, a bus, a dark alley, and the inner city) with Chali 2na, Mark 7even, Akil, and Soup rapping, seemingly oblivious to these settings.

Critical receptionEdit

Allmusic reviewer John Bush cited "What's Golden", along with "A Day at the Races" as "old-school anthems" among the darker songs elsewhere in the album.[1]
