The office can get pretty boring, that’s if you don’t have Chris Brown as a co-worker. In his new “Till I Die” video, Breezy makes his 9-to-5 live and then hooks up with Wiz Khalifa and Big Sean for a smoke fest.
Brown’s self-directed clip starts in a run-of-the-mill office with maze-like cubicles, boring brown corkboards and a nasty old water cooler. It’s all pretty mundane, that is until a rapping Chris pops out of nowhere, tripping the mail guy and encouraging a Sarah Palin look-alike to photo-copy her bare bottom. “A n—a gonna be faded all the way ’til the a.m.,” Brown promises as his shift ends and he takes the elevator from the 420th floor to the building’s lobby with fellow stoners Wiz and Sean.
The good times continue to roll when Snoop Dogg, along with a few lucky ladies, comes to pick up his homeys in a yellow, old-school convertible. “Mo drink, pour it up/ More weed, roll it up,” Sean raps while Brown harmonizes “I’m high” in the background as they ride through the streets of L.A.
The happy rappers eventually reach their destination, a foggy frat house with thick, billowing smoke, tons of snacks and fellow marijuana enthusiasts Method Man and Redman, who present Wiz with a golden bong.
“Till I Die” was actually Khalifa’s second weed-inspired video of the day. Earlier Wednesday, the Pittsburgh spitter dropped a clip for “The Grinder,” a jazzy smoke tune from his Taylor Allderdice mixtape.
For Brown, “Till I Die” is a far cry all of the other videos he’s released from his upcoming Fortune album. “Turn Up the Music,” which has amassed almost 40 million views on YouTube, is a heavy dance number, while “Strip” finds Chris in the middle of a sexy house party. The Virginia singer’s sultry love-making ode “Sweet Love” comes with a video to match, but “Till I Die” is a fun and welcomed departure from it all. Not that we condone that sort of thing.
