2 Chainz Pays Tribute to Fallen Friend in ‘U Da Realest’ Video
2 Chainz is looking as fly as ever hanging out at a barbecue and rocking the Puerto Rican flag in the video for ‘U Da Realest.’ The festivities are done with heavy hearts, however.
The Atlanta rapper dedicated the video to his friend Puerto Rican Johnny, who died in a car accident in 2012. He was a well-known figure in Atlanta’s custom car and street racing scene as well as the former CEO of Kut Da Check Racing.
After starting the visual with a clip of Puerto Rican Johnny dissing an apparently financially unstable person at the gas station, 2 Chainz pays tribute to him with a celebration. There’s multiple Puerto Rican flags, ATVs, and custom cars. The video ends on a somber note as Deuce sets flowers on his fallen friend’s grave.
‘U Da Realest’ is a track off 2 Chainz’s sophomore effort, ‘B.O.A.T.S. II: Me Time.’ In the coming year, he’ll embark on the 2 Good to Be T.R.U. Tour, which kicks off in Boston in Feb. 2, 2014.
