2 Chainz probably isn’t the first rapper you’d guess would attempt a “Thriller” remake. But it’s here: “Freebase” features 2 Chainz in the red leather jacket and his transformation into a zombie with braids. Plus, the iconic dance sequence gets replaced by some trap music dance moves — which really isn’t dancing.
To be fair, the cacophonous, horror movie production at least makes “Freebase” a good enough fit for such a video. The subject matter does leave in enough room to slip in a “Night of the Living Baseheads” reference, no?
