“By any means I gotta get it/ You can sleep when u die, point blank, period”

Now I was never one to agree with the phrase “sleep when you die,” as some folks take it too literally. However, 2 Chainz makes a few poignant points in the inspirational track of the same name off of Pretty Girls Like Trap Music.

Just one day after dropping the “Blue Cheese” visuals featuring Migos, the ATLien returns with a video for “Sleep When U Die.” 2 Chainz acts as the pep talk you always needed and the motivational push you didn’t know you wanted. “No excuse for this, you only get one life / You only get once chance,” he raps. “Hard work beats talent.”

Later, he boasts about all the benefits he’s acquired through out his career and how the grind eventually brought him success. “Yeah I got too many watches on my arm/ I got too much shit goin’ on/ I got your favorite stripper on my phone/ I got a bank account, got another bank account/ Got another bank account, to be continued/ Hibachi my menu, my bracelet on igloo.

So in the laymen terms, don’t give up, work hard and reap the benefits! Directed by Joe Moore, check out the video above and vibe out with 2 Chainz flexing in Dubai.
