2 Chainz Recreates Michael Jackson’s Thriller, Drives 1954 Cadillac Eldorado: Not The Same

2 Chainz Recreates Michael Jackson’s Thriller 1 photo
Tauheed Epps, better known by his stage name 2 Chainz, just walked on thin ice with his latest Freebase video, considering he tried to partially recreate Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.” And to keep things as close to the real video, the rapper is also driving a classic Cady.

Tity Boi, the other name the 36-year old rapper goes around, might’ve went a bit to far with this one. We get the idea of getting old school super hits and remaking them in order to somehow keep the flavor alive, but maybe this fellow is trying a bit to much. Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” may be the most iconic music video of all time, one that would reinvent pop music and its believers. You can’t just play around with that, just because you feel like tacking a crack at it.

As usual though, we’re not here to talk music, even though we obviously disagree with 2 Chainz’s new video. What we definitely like watching, on the other hand, is that beautiful classic American four-wheeler. And 1954 was also the year when Eldorado lost its unique sheet metal, sharing its basic body shell with standard Cadillacs. The Eldorado convertible came with monogram plates on the doors, wire wheels and custom interior trimmings with the Cadillac crest embossed on the seat bolsters.

It’s the ride of the past that anybody would want to drive around every now on then and is definitely one of the cars that proved to be extremely successful back in those days.
