Ascendent Atlanta rap goofball 2 Chainz teamed up with Kanye West on “Birthday Song,” a track from his messy but stronger-than-you’ve-heard new album Based On A T.R.U. Story. And the brand-new video is quite possibly the weirdest thing you will see today. It’s a creepy, mechanized, Lynchian vision of a birthday party — or, at least, it would be if it weren’t for all the strippers everywhere. If you’re looking to write a graduate thesis on female objectification in rap videos, the scene of the girl-as-birthday-cake should be a major resource. Honestly, I have no idea what the fuck is even happening in this one, but you can watch it below.
Based On A T.R.U. Story is out now on Def Jam.
