Armed with a beat by Twintwo and M1OnTheBeat, Headie’s performance on “2 Chains” is an exercise in doing what one does best. Lyrically, he immerses us in trapper mythology and drops pop culture references left, right and centre, mentioning everyone from Thierry Henry and The Weeknd to Ashanti and Kirk Franklin over the violin-backed drill instrumental.
Directed by DAPS, the accompanying visuals are simple but effective: Headie bursts through the scene in two platinum and diamond chains, a matching diamond bezel watch, a Celine two-piece and a twin canister flamethrower—for good measure. To put it simply, “2 Chains” is a statement piece as to why Headie One resides amongst UK rap’s elite.
