2 Chainz throws a ski mask on for his grimy new “Like Me” video.
Ideally, weddings should be all about love, family, overeating, and maybe some tipsy dancing to Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing.” So we can’t for the life of us figure out what is going on in 2 Chainz’s new video “Like Me” (from his Grammy-nominated Based On A T.R.U. Story), featuring a lonesome bride wandering through the empty streets with a bottle of champagne in her hand. Was she stood up at the altar? Did she get cold feet? Was she mad about 2 Chainz showing up to the ceremony (IF he showed up, that is) in a Chanel ski mask? Did 2 Chainz get that Chanel mask from Justin Bieber??

Directed by Sharod Marcus Simpson, the grainy black, white, and blue video (which samples The Weeknd’s “The Birds Pt. 1.”) has 2 Chainz rapping outside in the cold, while cutting back to a beautiful bride in a wedding dress and ski mask. Again, what could’ve prevented 2 Chainz and his bride from getting hitched? Did someone speak now before forever holding their peace? Well, maybe it’s all for the best. 2 Chainz seems like the player type, and ANY bride deserves someone who’s ready and willing to commit. Also, can anyone say, “DIVORCE LAWYER FEES”? Best to avoid those at all costs, especially when you’re a world-famous rhymer.
