Who needs Video Vixens when your Mum is around – 2 Chainz, YG, Offset
It is not Mother’s Day yet but still everyday is a day to appreciate your mother. Rappers Offset, 2 Chainz and YG certainly think so.
Instead of getting video vixens for their new hit single “Proud” they use their mothers instead to show their appreciation and love for their mothers as they told the story of their joint struggles together in their own unique style.Listen — David Guetta and Sia release ‘Flames’
2 Chainz, YG and Offset all love their mommas, and now they have a music video to show it.
Today 2 Chainz dropped the highly anticipated video for “Proud,” which features all three rappers’ mothers as the stars. 2 Chainz’s mom, dripped out in her sons gold “Truu” necklace and gold-tinted Tom Ford Oliver shades, tackles the opening verse with as much energy as her son. “Tru University I pull it up and murk a beat,” his mother raps, hilariously lip-syncing over his son’s vocals. “As soon as I finish pissing I put the seat down, or my momma gonna curse my d— a– out.”
YG’s mother comes in for the second verse, wearing a dark red lipstick, bright red jacket and red bandana tied around her neck. “My momma ain’t raise no ho,” she lip-syncs with tenacity, “cause my momma ain’t no ho.”
For the final verse, Offset’s mother keeps it cool like her son. She sits on a couch in a bordered up dusty apartment, counting money while her son’s heavy gold “Offset” chain shines on her neck. “Momma taught me how to get that bank roll,” she says as she waves a stack of 100’s at the camera, “Bought up in my life in case the bank close.”Watch: Lil Wayne and Birdman hug it out in Public for the first time
The video is innovative and touching. Goes to show you do not an elegant piano ensemble to express emotions neither do you need emotional words. All you need are the tools God gave you. Their mommas must certainly be proud of their boys.
