A mother is afraid her son will take to crime again. Taken from real life, because when the EP was released, Kempi himself was behind bars.

Ik Wil Nikes is a track from the EP Rap & Glorie, a collaboration between the Eindhoven-based rap phenomenon Kempi and American top producer The Alchemist. Kempi does not appear in the video himself, as this 'gangsta rapper of the Lowlands' was in jail for the umpteenth time. In the video, too, the protagonist has trouble keeping to the straight and narrow. The temptations of money and no-good friends are irresistible, to the deep sorrow of his mother, who quietly watches the drama.
