2 Chainz is 41 years old, and he still makes ridiculously fun hits and regularly appears on songs with the biggest stars in the world. For that, he’s an inspiration. He’s also a relentlessly good rapper, a neverending source of dad jokes and absurdist boasts. And now he’s made another video just as silly as the song that inspired it.
Back in June, 2 Chainz recruited Drake and Quavo to appear on his springy trap banger “Bigger Than You.” (If if flew a bit under the radar, blame the dozens of other Drake songs that came out in June.) And today, “Bigger Than You” gets a supremely cartoonish video.
2 Chainz, Quavo, and Drake don’t actually appear in the “Bigger Than You” video. Instead, director Nathan R. Smith goes the same route that Spike Jonze went for the video for the Notorious B.I.G.’s “Sky’s The Limit.” Rather than the actual people, we see little-kid doppelgangers for 2 Chainz, Quavo, Drake, and producer Murda Beatz, complete with drawn-on facial hair. They tear shit up in a school hallway and inspire dance parties among the surprisingly sexy school staff. Watch it below.
“Bigger Than You” is out now at the streaming services, and hopefully we’ll get a 2 Chainz album sometime soon.
