While 2 Chainz is swinging with Drake on his Club Paradise tour, his new video for “Stunt,” featuring Meek Mill, creates more excitement for the rapper formerly known as Tity Boi.
The video, which dropped today, showcases heavy helpings of Ciroc vodka and a some Big Willie-styled cigar smoking, but the entire video is made up of only a few scenes of implied excess–rapping in front of a luxury car; being fit for a bespoke suit; sitting with female eye candy.
Outside of this clip, 2 Chainz has good reason to stunt, as it has been a busy and productive year for the rising Atlanta-based rapper. “Stunt” dropped a week after Nicki Minaj previewed her next single, “Beez in the Trap,” which features 2 Chainz.
Last week, Drake announced that he would be extending his Club Paradise tour and will be joined by 2 Chainz, French Montana, Waka Flocka Flame and Meek Mill. With so many hot artists on the bill, the former Playaz Circle frontman offered a more fitting tittle.
“I’m re-naming this tour the Winners Circle,” 2 Chainz said in a statement to CBS Local. “Everybody on the marquis is at the top of their game right now. Drake, of course, is killing them. And French Montana, Waka and myself are having a banner year. The fans are going to get one hell of a show. And the timing is perfect. Just before my album drops.”
“Stunt” is a record off 2 Chainz’s mixtape, T.R.U. REALigion. You can watch the video at Prefixmag. –Erik Parker, CBS Local
