Tell every other music video director to take the rest of the year off. 2019 has already touched the peak of the medium by giving us 2 Chainz brandishing a flamethrower in “Hot Wings”
Directed by Howard Ross, “Hot Wings” is our new front-runner for Best Picture. The video begins with 2 Chainz rapping at a spot specializing in, you guessed it, hot wings. Halfway through the clip, however, things get even hotter as 2 Chainz heats up the nighttime skyline as he blasts a flamethrower from a rooftop.
The Hit-Boy and G Dav produced track can be heard on 2 Chainz’s latest EP, the wonderfully titled Hot Wings Are a Girl’s Best Friend.
