2 Chainz continues to promote his 2019 album ‘Rap Or Go To The League‘ with a brand new music video for “Money In The Way.”
In the new music video, 2 Chainz takes us through a trip to the past where he shows some significant moments from the past. Directed by Vincent Lou, the video shows a robbery in 1965 and some posters from a Civil Rights Movement. Another scene from 1975 shows a pimp earning cash through one of his prostitutes from an elderly gentleman, seemingly someone of power and influence.
2 Chainz dresses up in a bejewelled and sparkly jacket with a lot of bling and wad of cash. A scene from 1985 shows a trio of youngsters break-dancing to the music from a radio! Good times! Another scene from 1995, shows a brawl between several African Americans ending in a fatal gunshot wound to one. The video starts off with the present day, so that is 50 years of a journey back in time inside one building.
As per Uproxx, 2 Chainz said that this song is about “about black excellence, ‘each one teach one’, and it’s about getting the African American community to know they can do something.”
2 Chainz performs “Money In The Way” in a hallway where all of these incidents take place.Watch the music video below.
‘Rap Or Go To The League’ features an impressive list of artists from Travis Scott, Ariana Grande, Kendrick Lamar, Lil Wayne and more. The album had a very successful launch in its first week of release.
