DJ Mustard Enlists 2 Chainz, Ty Dolla Sign for 'Down On Me' Video
The video is either comically aware of itself or so cliched that the world could actually implode from the triteness of it all. It's hard to say because the vocalists on the track, 2 Chainz and Ty Dolla $ign, play their roles with the same straight face as Keanu Reeves in Point Break: you wonder if they know the nature of what's happening around them or not.
As one would expect, there are ratchet girls twerking and as one would not quite expect there are constant flashes of snakes, slithering (or, as hip-hop prefers to refer to them, anacondas). It's a visual pun but one so obvious that it works on two levels: the obvious, for the dimwitted viewer and the hilarious for those who are just tourists in ratchet culture. What actual ratchet fans think of this is a mystery.
