2 Chainz Gets A Custom Suit On GQ’s "Most Expensivest Shit"
GQ has been doing good by Tity Boi these past few months.

For this weeks episode of the series, Chainz ups the ante with a custom-made suit that runs between $50,000 and $60,000 dollars because, you know, he can't risk running into someone at the awards who's wearing the same outfit.

Jessie J is still riding high on the Billboard charts with her Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj collaboration "Bang Bang," but in the world of top forty radio, one hit is never enough. Returning to our pages with another cross-genre hit single, J brings shirtless male extras and a fully-clothed Tity Boi together for "Burnin' Up," the latest visual from her upcoming sophomore album. 2 Chainz's footage here looks like it was shot off-location. I guess hanging with half-naked men wasn't what his old moniker was referring to.

Keyshia Cole Feat. 2 Chainz
Keyshia Cole returns to HNHH with the official video for her latest single "N.L.U." Lyrically aggressive and livened up by an always-reliable 2 Chainz verse, the track's visuals find our two stars performing in front of a blue backdrop with varying degrees of darkness. For those interested in the psychology of color-scheme, blue tends to be associated with sorrow. Whether the connection was intended by the director can't be stated for certain, but it would be appropriate response to the track's lyrical nature.

The burger actually holds the Guinness World Record for most expensivest (it's actually a really fun word to use) burger in the world. The hamburger, made from Japanese wagu beef, has a bun dusted with real-ass gold, and comes with caviar that costs $200 an oz. Take a look above as the chef explains each product in the burger, and watch as the Hair Weave Killa takes a bite.

Last week, Killa Cam dropped "Snapped," a collab with 2 Chainz that's the EP's first single, and today, a video arrives. The NY/ATL duo go in over a chipmunk-soul-from-hell instrumental that sounds like a lean-drenched version of Cam's "Oh Boy." Tity Boi in particular goes hard on this one.

The seasoned rapper has released a snippet of what could be the lead single from his upcoming follow-up to the criminally underrated B.O.A.T.S II.On the new track, he's taken advantage of the tried-and-true Young Thug feature, used notably and very effectively by fellow Atlanta OG T.I. on "About The Money".

2 Chainz "Freebase" Video
Michael Jackson's "Thriller" may be the most iconic music video of all time, and seeing as we're in the age of nostalgia, it was only a matter of time before someone took another crack at it. 2 Chainz may not have been the first artist you'd have picked out to don MJ's zipper jacket, but he pulls it off, and we all know he's got just as original of a dance style as Jackson did, it's just a lot less technical.
2 Chainz "Freebase" Video (Trailer)
2 Chainz dropped the experimental trap opus, Freebase, earlier this year, and he's gradually filming visuals for each and every one of the tracks. The title track, one of the more punishing numbers on the project, is the latest to get the visual treatment, and seems as though it will be a pretty clear homage to Michael Jackson's iconic "Thriller" video.

Ice Cube Feat. Redfoo & 2 Chainz
Ice Cube is still prepping his album Everythang's Corrupt, although we don't have a release date yet. We heard this single featuring Redfoo and 2 Chainz at the end of June, and it received mixed reactions on the site. Cube is attempting the EDM-rap influence however fans may have enjoyed something a little more traditional from the OG. The video is almost as weird as the song, if not more so, as Cube, Redfoo and Tity Boi turn into bobble heads that work in a science lab, all in an effort to make girls drop their asses.
2 Chainz "Flexin' On My Baby Mama" Video
2 Chainz dropped his Freebase EP last month, and has been rolling out the videos since. The latest visual from the project is the DJ Paul-produced "Flexin' On My Baby Mama", which as the title suggests, depicts plenty of flexin' (though Tity's baby mama is nowhere in sight). The rapper's follow up to BOATS 2 (which will not be called BOATS 3), will reportedly continue the Freebase theme, and is due out very soon.

Today the rapper comes through with an official music video for the track featuring 2 Chainz, where his chick continuously yells and angrily flails her arms at K Camp (in slow motion, no less) while the rapper ignores her the whole time.
2 Chainz Appears In "Blizzard Man" SNL Skit
There's no doubt that 2 Chainz is among the modern masters of creating catchy hooks and quotable guest verses, but sometimes, according to this SNL sketch at least, he needs some help in the booth. That's when he calls on Blizzard Man (played by Andy Samberg) to come up with hooks straight off the dome.
2 Chainz On "The Truth" With Elliott Wilson

2 Chainz "Trap Back" Video
2 Chainz just delivered his new EP, Freebase, and from the very first track it was clear that Tity was getting a little more experimental with his production choices on the effort. "Trap Back" is the most ambitious cut from the EP in this regard, with Street Symphony and 808 x Elite providing a woozy space age bounce that moves at about half the speed you;d expect it to. Meanwhile cites his triplet flow, saying he got it from Drizzy, who got it from Migos, who got it from Three Six.
