Atlanta rapper 2 Chainz and Kanye West's highly-anticipated "Birthday Song" music video has premiered online and showcases curvy women, bad kids and plenty of cake.
In the new "not safe for work" video, Chainz and Yeezy show there are no limits to bringing their lyrics to life.
2 Chainz has released the video for "Birthday Song," his collaboration with Kanye West. Spoiler: It looks nothing like your birthday party -- though considering 2 Chainz also recently debuted a video for his song "I Luv Strippers," that's shouldn't be too surprising. The clip -- which may or may not give you nightmares; HuffPost Entertainment is not responsible for said nightmares -- features 2 Chainz and West celebrating with a bevy of scantily-clad women, 40 oz. beers and one very unlucky clown.

Prior to its release, Chainz talked about incorporating luscious desires and birthday themes in the video.
"It's very trippy," 2 Chainz said of the clip. "I actually let Kanye's director shoot it ... and we were on the phone going over the treatment. I was just being conceptual. It's called 'Birthday Song,' so what do you think [of]? I think cake, balloons, candles, normal birthday stuff, but this guy just goes up the street, turns left and just keeps going left. He's telling me something like, 'I think it'd be nice if we put a cupcake on a girl's butt and shoot it off in fast motion, then blow up the cupcake.' So I said, 'Bro, come back home, come back!'"

The Southern rapper hit up Twitter to boast about its "Video of the Year" potential shortly after it premiered.
"Bday song vid is anutha level of ridiculous," he tweeted August 30th.
