What’s going on in 2 Chainz’s “No Lie” video featuring Drake? We haven’t quite figured that out, but we can’t stop watching. Shot in black and white, the camera lens captures the illusion of paint dripping down the wall and the same paint being poured onto a beautiful muse. This has to be the only place where a polygraph test, skateboarding and masquerade masks paired with a wedding dress exists in the same room. Director X is no stranger to creating aesthetically pleasing videos that don’t have meaning that one can easily pinpoint. “No Lies” is beautiful artwork within cinema.
2 Chainz is the latest rap phenomenon to saturate the airwaves. And nothing he does is conventional, including his latest video. His popularity quickly rose from his critically acclaimed mixtape T.R.U. REALigion, which led to a gang of features on hot rappers’ tracks. Just like we listen to “No Lies” on repeat, the video equally gets as much repeat action.
