There are two 2 Chainz in the video for “Fork,” both metaphorically and physically. The B.O.A.T.S. II: Me Time album opener finds the Georgia rapper contrasting a career in music with a hypothetical one in the dope game, and the clip plays off of this juxtaposition. “Rap don’t work, records ain’t being sold,” the former Tity Boi says, and yet, “so much money on me, it won’t even fold.” The charismatic MC stalks through a house that’s constantly shifting between stately manor and run-down hovel, and many scenes feature two different versions of 2 Chainz: a shirtless and hungry version, and the dressed-to-the-nines gold aficionado we now know.
