Love & Hip Hop Hollywood star Chanel West Coast has been defending herself on social media for the last couple of weeks after Charlamagne Tha God called her a “wack rapper” (again), but now Chanel is letting her music speak for itself in the form her latest music video for the single “New Bae” featuring her LHHH co-star Safaree.
In the video, Chanel is her damn fine self (I don’t think even Charlamagne would question that fact) as she acts out a break up and super quick rebound with VERY little regret:
Throughout the video Chanel is seen sporting a bejeweled mask, which instantly made me think of Kanye West’s infamous use of designer masks during his live performances. I thought for a second that perhaps the mask usage was a humorous wink from Chanel, after her comments comparing herself to Kanye and Drake inspired Charlamagne’s most recent criticisms, but I realized that this video was shot well before the recent controversy. (Chanel has pointed out that her comments were heavily edited by producers. “I said if Charlamagne is gunna diss Drake and Kanye then he basically saying I’m up there with Drake and Kanye,” she clarified on Twitter.)
Here’s the Chanel mask look:
So, what do you guys think? You diggin’ Chanel’s new track? And don’t jump to conclusions without giving it a fair listen!
