2 Chainz is bringing back the legendary Hot Boys for his new video. While shooting a music video for his Mannie Fresh-produced “Used 2,” Chainz brought out members of the original group in New Orleans.
“We just tryna get that whole Hot Boys feel again. I’m definitely trying to get Juvie there, a few other people if they come. You always want to put the landscaping behind the actual authenticity of the record.” Chainz told Rap-Up earlier early this week. “We turnUP today in the 7 th ward ,Hot boy shit #freeB.G.” Chainz tweeted yesterday with an Instagram photo from the set.
Apparently, the beat was helmed by Mannie Fresh on an iPad. “I remember saying, ‘OK badass, let me see you put it on this computer so I can rap on it,’ and he did, and now it’s a single,” Chainz said.
“Used 2” is from 2 Chainz’s most recent release, B.O.A.T.S. II: Me Time.
