Migos Revive Deceased Statesmen, Count Stacks in New “Deadz” Video

It would have been weird if they'd stayed dead.

Does it count as a spoiler if I say that Benjamin Franklin and Abraham Lincoln come back to life at the end of the Migos's new video for "Deadz"? Perhaps. But it would be weird if Quavo, Takeoff, and Offset had spent three minutes throwing money onto the open caskets of both deceased statesmen just to have them stay dead.

There's an orchestra here, yes. The Migos join 2 Chainz on a balcony to rap over the strings, presiding over what they seem to think is a perfectly normal backing band.

Wait, were Benjamin Franklin and Abraham Lincoln just brought back from the dead by the Migos throwing money at them?

Who pitched that idea?

It's brilliant.
