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!

Look at Brad there. Nature was pretty kind to him, wasn’t it? And look how well he turns himself out. All dapper and wait…hold on a minute. Take your eyes off his pretty face for a second. Scan down, look at his left hand. Is that…a pinky ring?
A frikkin’ pinky ring? Really Brad? Were you recently promoted to ‘Boss’ in the Soprano family? Or are you now a rapper? Because those are pretty much the only two scenarios in which a pinky ring is even remotely acceptable and even then, you kind of look like a douche.
And it’s not just Brad. Recently, I’ve seen regular guys, who I’m assuming are not mob bosses or rap superstars, donning pinky rings. This is a dangerous trend that we cannot allow to slink into mainstream society. Why? Because it starts with a pinky ring and it’s a slippery slope to a sovereign ring, unbuttoned shirts, out of control chest hair and medallions, that’s why.
So fellas, unless you plan to go out and whack somebody, or you’re about to spit a mean 16, kindly refrain from donning a pinky ring. And even if you are about to whack somebody or spit a mean 16, I’m sure you can find some more appropriate attire in which to do it.
