Musician and MTV Ridiculousness co-host Chanel West Coast is back with the new video for “40 Yard Dash,” which is filled with football-themed visuals and was filmed at the legendary SoFi Stadium in LA (home of the Rams).
“40 Yard Dash” is off Chanel’s debut album “America’s Sweetheart” that was recently released and includes appearances from Too $hort, Dreezy, Porcelain Black, etc. For context, Chanel was most recently signed to Lil Wayne and his Young Money label, where she released two mixtapes, collaborated on songs with Snoop Dogg, French Montana, Ty Dolla Sign, YG, Robin Thicke, etc. and appeared on the Young Money: Rise of an Empire collaborative album.
Lil Wayne decided to take Chanel under his musical wing after she played a couple songs for him while in a studio in Miami and was immediately impressed by her talent. Over the course of her career, she also opened up for Cardi B, Tyga, Machine Gun Kelly, Rick Ross, Waka Flocka, etc. in tours across the country. Chanel has donated a portion of proceeds from streams of the album to the REFORM Alliance, the criminal justice reform organization co-founded by Meek Mill, Shawn “JAY-Z” Carter, Philadelphia 76ers partner Michael Rubin, New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft and others.
Most recently, Chanel celebrated the holiday season by dropping “West Coast Christmas,” which describes all of the best parts of Christmas in California, including barbecuing at family’s house and celebrating with legal cannabis.
