The above is the video for rapper/singer Drake’s first single, Best I Ever Had.
A little background: Drake is a Toronto boy (woo hoo!), rapper/singer/actor triple threat. He’s been on the seen in Toronto for a minute, but over the last year has aligned himself with the over-tattooed, gremlin-like Lil Wayne. This has garnered him an incredible amount of buzz. So much so, that the above song ‘Best I Ever Had’ is currently sitting at #3 on the Billboard singles chart. This is unusual because Drake doesn’t even have an album out yet. This single is from his underground mixtape. Pretty amazing achievement.
Drake is poised to be the biggest thing in the rap game – or at least that’s what all signs seem to be pointing to. His hype is out of control and this song has been getting played everywhere you go (I’m sure you can imagine how much Drake we hear in Toronto). So this video, directed by Kanye West was much anticipated.
So, watch the video…..
Was Drake even in that? I can’t tell because I feel like I just got slapped in the face with multiple pairs of oversized titties. How does this video relate to the song? Maybe I’m slow, but I just don’t get it. For once, just ONCE, I would like there to be a hip hop video that wasn’t about hos, tits and ass. For the love of Christ!
This is the worst piece of trash I’ve ever seen. Drake was meant to be better than this!
This video should be a PSA about the dangers of playing sports without supportive undergarments. I can’t even imagine the pain those big breasted video hos were in. They probably had to have ice packs on their boobs after the shoot.
And Kanye West directed this crap. It’s not really surprising that it’s shitty in that sense. He’s been falling off since right after The College Dropout. He’s descended into being an autotune using, video ho dating loser. Originality has been slipping from his grasp for a minute, so not surprisingly, he thought throwing some tits and basketballs into the mix would make a decent video.
For all the hype Drake’s been getting (and all the hard work he’s put in trying to get there), he really needs to be careful. If this video is any indication of things to come, it’ll be a pretty quick fall from grace.
Someone please introduce him to some girls with B cup breasts, STAT!
