Full disclosure: this is a bad song and a ridiculous video that you should absolutely watch.
Over the course of the last seven years you’ve probably asked yourself, “When are we going to get a video that is essentially a mashup of “Miracles” by Insane Clown Posse and ‘Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas’?” Is that not something you’ve said three or four times over the last decade?
The first half of the equation:
And the second:
You put all of that together and you get….
….GUCCI MANE IN A SPACESUIT FLOATING OVER A DESERT LANDSCAPE WHILE A SCANTILY CLAD WOMAN RIDES A KANGAROO!
Maybe you can see the foot coming into frame in the above screen grab. That’s another incarnation of Gucci Mane that walks and stomps across the desert causing fire to shoot out of the ground. That’s obviously the best incarnation of Gucci Mane. You can see agrees with that sentiment; as he stomps fire into existence he grins like a maniac.
With the appearance of Kendrick Lamar the video goes downhill. Thankfully the director had sense enough to insert a shot of a different woman riding a unicorn to spice up Kendrick’s verse about his usual subjects (i.e. Compton and being the best rapper in the game).
The song appears on Mike WiLL Made-It’s “Ransom 2.” It’s not close to the best song on the album, but it’s also not anywhere near as bad as “Miracles.” Some of the video effects are comparable, but Shaggy 2 Dope is no Gucci Mane. If you like Rae Sremmurd you might like the song. If you like laughing you will love the video.
