Eat a Coney dog in a rap video

Posted By on Sat, Sep 20, 2014 at 9:19 AM

Have you ever wanted to be in a rap video? Ok, here’s a second question: have you ever wanted to eat a Coney dog in a rap video? Of course you have! Chavis Chandler thought that you might, which is why he is filming the video for his song, “Lou’s Coney Island,” at –you guessed it- the historic Lou’s Coney Island at 19100 Mound Rd, Detroit, MI 48234 on Sunday, the 21st, from 11am to 3pm.

To sweeten the deal, the first one hundred guests will receive a free Coney dog!

Chandler’s latest project, Bridge Card Raps, is proof that he is emerging as a strong force in Detroit’s hip hop scene. Recently, he won the Heineken Imported from the D Contest.

Chavis Chadler had this to say regarding the video, “Bringing out and uniting the city is something I really wanted for this video. It’s the favorite song for a lot of my fans and I want to give them a hype visual”  

Showing up at Leo's on Sunday won't cost you anything -unless you want lunch- and the chances are pretty good that you'll be in Chandler's video.
