Music Video: @2chainz - Trap Check

Chainz has already dropped three music videos since his album Pretty Girls Like Trap Music came out not so long ago. That's Blue Cheese, Sleep When U Die and the latest video for Trap Check makes it three, so far.

Tity Boi has two groups of people standing on different sides of a life-sized chess board, one group covered in white paint or powder while the other in black.
