When I was doing my mixtapes, I would perform in strip clubs. I would perform in clubs, and it was just like some of my most die-hard fans would be in these places. I wanted to kinda like honor them–kinda honor all my girls in the club and just say thank you for the support.
As it turns out, when the 2 Chainz and Nicki Minaj credits are flipped for “I Luv Dem Strippers” (off Chainz’ debut album), they are still thanking strippers for the support. A different sort of support, yes, but still.
The video’s absolutely unsurprising–strippers! That quick-cut camera technique from “Beez in the Trap” and everything else!–but fortunately, the former Tity Boi is still good for one WTF moment per song. This time, it’s interpolating the chorus from New Edition’s “Mr. Telephone Man.” Nicki’s WTF moment is her outro, but she’s got another great sound bite–”that’s why I’m crowned queen, and I ain’t lookin’ for the prom king” will probably show up in a hundred yearbooks by 2013.
Watch the video below, but keep in mind: there are strippers.
