Watch R. Kelly & 2 Chainz’s ‘My Story’ Video
In the year in which Drake‘s ‘Started From the Bottom‘ has been one of the biggest records — commercially and culturally — it seems like telling your rags-to-riches stories has been more prevalent than usual in music. R. Kelly shared his come up on ‘My Story,’ which today gets a necessary visual makeover.
Kellz’s new video is much more one-dimensional than Drizzy’s, though. While ‘Started From the Bottom’ showed us both the emphatic highs — flying in a private jet, living it up in your crib in the Dominican Republic, so and so forth — and the crushing lows — y’know, working the night shift at a drug store — ‘My Story’ only gives us a glimpse at the spoils of being a star.
Actually, there is a scene where R. Kelly is in a regular person store, except he’s skating around it like the rich and famous celebrity he is. Too bad he couldn’t lure out 2 Chainz for an appearance in the clip, though.
‘My Story’ will appear on R. Kelly’s upcoming ‘Black Panties’ album, due out later this year.
