Lest there was any doubt that 2 Chainz loves strippers, the Georgia-bred rapper (born Tauheed Epps) clarifies his position on the matter in his latest video. Chainz pays tribute to exotic dancers in “I Luv Dem Strippers,” which offers no shortage of pole-grinding, booty-shaking, skimpy outfits or raining cash.
Nicki Minaj shows up at 2:20 to get in on the action, stroking dancers’ derrieres and proclaiming, “Yes, that’s why I’m crowned queen/And I ain’t lookin’ for the prom king / These h**s’ careers ain’t promising.”
Chainz previously penned guest verses for Kanye West’s “Mercy” and Minaj’s “Beez in the Trap.” And in case you were wondering how long it took to craft lyrics for one of said tracks, the rapper opened up about the creative process in a recent interview with HuffPost Entertainment.
“How long does it take to smoke a blunt? [Laughs] It was probably around 15 minutes,” he said, discussing his collaboration with ‘Ye. “I did about five songs that night. I remember with ‘Mercy,’ it didn’t take me long at all. But I didn’t know it was going to be a single. If I had known it was going to be a single, maybe I would have taken some more time on it. I’m glad it happened the way it did because I’m happy with the outcome.”
Chainz’ forthcoming album, Based On A T.R.U. Story, drops Tuesday.
