Leave it to 2 Chainz to hop out of a Gucci logo-inspired coffin for his 2012 BET Hip Hop Awards performance Tuesday night (Oct. 9). The rapper, decked out in a black suit and matching tie, opened up his set with “Birthday Song” sans Kanye West.

As a choir sang behind him, Deuce spit out his lyrics and made his way to an ivory piano onstage. He began tickling the keys, playing a simple tune before he got into his Based on a T.R.U. Story track “I’m Different.”

All of this was done before the “Hair Weave Killer” ripped off his white collared shirt to showcase a black T-shirt and a neck adorned with glittering gold chains.
