2 Chainz scored a winner earlier this year when he dropped his collaboration with Drake, Quavo, and Murda Beatz, "Bigger Than You." Making brilliant use of everyone involved, the snappy single offered up our first taste of his upcoming album Rap or Go to the League, which follows 2017's Pretty Girls Like Trap Music. Before that album hits sometime later this year, the 41-year-old rapper has seen fit to share the fun video for the single.
Directed by Nathan R. Smith, the "Bigger Than You" visual doesn't actually feature any of the artists involved, instead opting for child lookalikes having the time of their lives. It's a fun and creative solution to getting around some of rap's busiest schedules, even allowing for cameos from other rappers in the form of more kids dressed-up.
Considering the relentless release schedule earlier this summer, it makes sense 2 Chainz would want to give this track another push. The single arrived in June, one of the most packed months of music in recent memory, with projects from JAY-Z and Beyoncé, Drake, Kanye West, Kanye and Kid Cudi, Teyana Taylor, Nas, Jay Rock, Death Grips, and Gorillaz.
As users on Genius pointed out, "Bigger Than You" is built around Quavo's contribution to an unreleased remix of Travis Scott's "Butterfly Effect," which was also produced by Murda Beatz. La Flame previewed the remix at some point last year, but the full version never surfaced online.
