Rappers pay tribute to late great artists all of the time, but 2 Chainz's latest video "Freebase" puts a disclaimer out front to make it known he means no disrespect. There's only one artist who would get such reverence from a rapper who says himself he doesn't respect his elders: Michael Jackson. A goofy but well-intentioned homage to Michael's iconic "Thriller" video, "Freebase" has 2 Chainz reprising the role of Michael, red leather jacket and all. Of course, 2 Chainz doens't posess the physical grace MJ did, so there's no elaborate zombie dance numbers here. The real payoff is the chance for 2 Chainz to showcase his best worst talent: acting.
