Shook Ones Piano Freestyle

I started doing piano freestyles over popular music a few years ago as a way to train my ears and improve my ability to play by ear. This time, I'm playing along with Mobb Deep - Shook Ones Part II.

This is just something I do to have fun and work on my ear training. I am not a pianist at all and I don't know how to play piano like a pianist. I just try to make the keys play what I hear in my head.
