2 Chainz just dropped the visuals for "4 AM," featuring Travis Scott. It's a standout cut from his stellar Pretty Girls Like Trap Music album that came out in June, and the vid is especially busy.
Clearly, there's a lot happening in the clip at once, and it's hard to decide what to focus in on and pay attention to. There are gorgeous women who dance and bounce and a big club scene—complete with bottles champagne and plenty smoke.
Most the video takes place in a hotel room, which makes the party seem wilder. It's far easier to turn up and get crazy in a place that's being rented and isn't your own, and this is a good time in a small place.
"4 AM" and the Pretty Girls Like Trap Music LP dropped six months ago, and it's still worth examining 2 Chainz's flow and lyrics here.
He uses different and very distinctive cadences for each his verses on the song. His word play is slick too, and it seems that he's taken a bigger interest in being lyrical over the past couple years or so. Not to say that Chainz didn't spit solid bars before, but since he was featured on Chance The Rapper's "No Problem" a while back, he's been killing his verses.
After the Pretty Girls album, it'll be interesting to see what 2 Chainz's next LP will sound like. For now, you can check out his new "4 AM" video above.
