Cut to the chase pan across to the face
I'm right there
Freeze frame on the street name
Oops wait a minute
This is where the streets have no name
As K'naan prepares to direct the movie about Somalia(as referenced in the last line), he tries to get a close up an a street sign for an artistic shot, the streets in Somalia are poorly developed and have no names, so he can’t do it.
