College Park, Georgia rapper 2 Chainz has released his newest music video for the track "U Da Realest" off of his second solo album B.O.A.T.S. II: Me Time. We've seen some interesting and unique videos in the past from 2 Chainz, such as "Birthday Song" or "I'm Different," but this time 2 Chainz tones down the insanity to celebrate the life of his lost friend. The video begins with a 30 second, black and white interlude where we see a man outside of a parking lot in a shouting match with another man before introducing the song itself. The man in the war of words is Puerto Rican Johnny, whose life is remembered throughout this video. The camera fades away from this tense scene to a much happier and lively setting where we see 2 Chainz as well as loads of other kids and adults gathered in a public park sporting Puerto Rican flags and enjoying the day. There are barbecue pits grilling mass amounts of meat and cars of every type placed throughout the scene. All the people shown have turned up to 2 Chainz music video shoot to remember the memory of their departed friend and celebrate his life. The track itself isn't the best when it comes to lyrical content but when it comes to a song like this it's more about the thought put into it then the song itself. 2 Chainz was just remembering a friend in his own way, and even though his physical being might be gone, his soul lives in his family and friends. Be sure to check out the visuals for "U Da Realest" below and make sure to read the rest of the article after the jump.
2 Chainz and Cap 1 join forces for the next single off B.O.A.T.S. II: Me Time. "Where U Been" is the second time the two of them come together on a major record since "Wut We Doin?" which can be found on 2 Chainz's last album. The song was released yesterday after 2 Chainz made an announcement on Twitter regarding a new single earlier this week. This is also another great addition to Mike Will Made It's body of work who has become one of the hottest producers by making beats for songs like "Bugatti", "Show Out" and even working with Miley Cyrus on "We Can't Stop". Check out the track below.
Compton superstar Game has just premiered his latest video for "Ali Bomaye" which was one of the best songs on his last album Jesus Piece. The title of the track pays homage to boxing legend Muhammad Ali and Game is also joined by hip-hop heavyweights 2 Chainz and Rick Ross for this one. The video is shot in what appears to be a futuristic Los Angeles with lots of neon lights and flying cars in the background. French Montana, Chris Brown and DJ Khaled also make an appearance. Watch the video below and be on the look out for Game's next mixtape Operation Kill Everything dropping soon.
Clinton Sparks teamed up with 2 Chainz, Macklemore and D.A. of the band Chester French for the second single off Clinton's Gold Ball & Chain album due out later this year. This is also the second video for "Gold Rush" and its much more like a traditional rap video with beautiful models and all of the artists performing unlike the last video which was actually meant to look like something from the gold rush and labeled as the 1849 version. The sound however is heavily influenced by rock music with a lot of drums and guitar. The new video even has cameos from Tommy Lee and Tyrese Gibson! We wouldn't think to see all of these artists together but they've probably dealt with their fair share of gold diggers to know exactly what this track needs. Enjoy the video below!
