Warning: video contains profanity.

Travis Scott's bond with the Houston Rockets just went up a notch.

The rapper—a former ball boy for his hometown NBA squad—teamed up with MVP candidate James Harden for his "Way Back" music video, which came out Wednesday.

The Beard, who is name-dropped in the song, watches negative coverage of himself (including Lil B discussing the infamous curse) before hitting the gym and, uh, hanging upside down.

Scott performed at a handful of Rockets playoff games this year. He also designed shirts for fans who attended Game 6 of the Western Conference Semifinals in Houston.
