2 Chainz: Def Jam Signs Rapper, Kreayshawn Stars in ‘Murder’ Video
A lot has happened since the last time The BoomBox spoke with rapper 2 Chainz. The Atlanta MC revealed Wednesday (Feb. 1) that he has officially signed with Def Jam, and has been working with his new labelmate Kanye West for the past year.
“We have records together, we have ideas that we’re planning on releasing to the world real soon. I’m tryna get my ‘N—-s in Paris’ swag up,” 2 Chainz told MTV. “It’s no secret that I came from the hustle background, from that trap, and it’s no secret that he’s maybe more of a hipster swag, backpack kinda guy. So I think it’ll be interesting when you just drop that in the pot, in the blender, and see the outcome and results of some of that.”
Chainz has also released a behind the scenes glimpse at the video shoot for his Kreayshawn-assisted single ‘Murder,’ from his acclaimed 2011 mixtape ‘T.R.U. REALigion.’
The Alex Nazari-helmed video — he’s directed for the likes of Wiz Khalifa and Ray J — depicts Chainz and the White Girl Mob rapper engaging in various horror film scenarios, presiding over some “rare meat” in bowls of blood and spitting rhymes in a torture chamber. This all occurs while Chainz jokes, “Rock and roll s—, ya dig?”
“It’s gonna be murderous, I tell you what,” Kreayshawn crows in the clip. “We’re doing all kinds of crazy things like eating people, killing people.”
The video should hit the ‘net shortly. In the meantime, Chainz is hard at work on his solo debut, tentatively titled ‘T.R.U. 2,’ in stores later this year.
