2 Chainz dropped his new video for "Ounces Back" on Thursday, but he's nowhere to be seen in it. Instead, his T.R.U. artist C White stands in for him, rapping along to the whole song as he navigates the tour bus, gets food from catering, and takes pictures with mob of screaming fans. Although the video is pretty straightforward, the 2 Chainz substitution gives things a comedic edge.
"Ounces Back" is the latest video off 2 Chainz' recent mixtape Daniel Son; Necklace Don. The tape features Drake and 2 Chainz' first musical reunion since "All Me" off Drake's Nothing Was the Same album. Coincidentally, 2 Chainz linked up with his other fellow "All Me" rapper Big Sean earlier today for their track "Light It Up." The song appears on Kevin Hart's new mixtape, which serves as a companion to his new stand-up comedy film Kevin Hart: What Now? It features Kevin rapping as his alter ego Chocolate Droppa.
2 Chainz promised on Twitter recently that he would be bringing his Daniel Son; Necklace Don mixtape into the cartoon world with a new miniseries presumably featuring the animated version of 2 Chainz featured on the mixtape's cover. There's no premiere date set yet, but the concept already has fans excited.
You can check out C White stand in for 2 Chainz in the "Ounces Back" video off Daniel Son; Necklace Don above. You can also catch 2 Chainz on stage during Night Two of ComplexCon. Check out all the details for the event here.
