2 Chainz

2 Chainz "Freebase" (Dos Cadenas, dir.)

First off, you have to love any video that opens with a message that it's "for entertainment purposes only" — or maybe it's a coy way of saying that too many videos are boring and serve no purpose at all. Anyway. But, it's the subsequent lines of the foreward that make you realize that 2 Chainz is treading on hallowed ground, or rather moonwalking. 

"Freebase" is a lo-fi remake of Michael Jackson's "Thriller" video, placing 2 Chainz into that red leather jacket and getting his groove on with some walking dead. It's awesome, even if I wish they had an Ola Ray cameo in it.

2 Chainz gets the royal welcome to NOLA, with Lil Wayne and other Cash Money Millionaires joining him for a raucous street party. Don't let the abundance of kids and families here fool ya: Between the lyrics and the booty, this is clearly NSFW. Although, certainly not as far as things could have gone in a video for a song about posting your sexcapades on YouTube for posterity.

It's not the Lingerie Bowl, but this game of Twerk Football gets close thanks as Robin Thicke, 2 Chainz and Kendrick Lamar make a convincing case that next year's Rose Bowl Parade should include an Ass Float. 

The video also pulls the second half of the Robin Thicke + Miley Cyrus VMA performance into focus for those who were befuddled by the battling parade dancers and Foam fingers. And also, Thicke's Referee meets Beetlejuice suit.
