Watch 2 Chainz And French Montana Swing For The Fences With ‘A-Rod’

The rappers unite to drop a new song and video just in time for MLB's opening day.

Opening night of the Major League Baseball season is this Sunday (followed on Tuesday by the premiere of “Off the Bat from the MLB Fan Cave” at 11 p.m. ET/10 CT on MTV2), and 2 Chainz is getting in the mood with his new song.

On Friday afternoon (March 28), his collaboration with French Montana, “A-Rod,” was released online, along with the accompanying video. The strike came roughly a month after the song was first teased, when Tit and French performed it live in New York.

“I be ridin’ through the park like I’m A-Rod/ Walkin’ through the park like I’m A-Rod/ Smokin’ on that strong, that’s that steroid/ They tryna kick me out like A-Rod/ I used to run the base like A-Rod,” Chainz raps on the chorus, making reference to controversial New York Yankees star Alex Rodriguez. It’s a point of comparison that is loosely woven throughout his and French’s verses as well.

The video takes fans to A-Rod’s recent stomping grounds, as the two rappers spend a chunk of time rhyming in front of the sign for Yankee Stadium. 2 Chainz is rocking a jacket with the iconic Yankees logo emblazoned on the left chest, while French dons a large fur coat as he rhymes in front of the famous Bronx stadium. Wale also makes a cameo.

There’s no word on where the Young Chop-produced track will land, though it may be off of 2 Chainz’s upcoming B.O.A.T.S. III album, which the rapper confirmed is in the works last month on “RapFix Live.”

B.O.A.T.S. is like a real healthy timeline of Tity Boy [or] 2 Chainz,” the Atlanta rapper said. “When I say, ‘I started from the trap, now I rap,’ it’s basically that.”


I'm still me.
