“This video is for entertainment purposes only, and dedicated to one of my favorite artists,” it reads. “In no kind of way is it our intent to disrespect the legacy of the greatest entertainer of all time.”
The disclaimer may seem over the top, but when you attempt to remake Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”— arguably the most famous music video of all time — you don’t want people to get things twisted.
2 Chainz’s nearly five-minute clip, which he directed under the pseudonym “Dos Cadenas” – 2 Chainz en Español — has him in that red coat dancing side-by-side with zombies.
But even while undead, 2 Chainz’s rhyming skills are alive and well.
The track in question is “Freebase,” and it’s from the rapper’s recent EP of the same name, out now.
