laughing my ass off: so

laughing my ass off: so many things are sooo wrong with this video from beginning to end. whats with the titties it gets od lame after the first 5 secs. we get the point. the video couldve had a way better theme. whats with the white girls trying to sound hood just because they are in a black video ( and ya’ll know thats the case). hes only sprinkling in black girls in the video like the white magazines do just so it won’t be too obvious hes self-discriminating. we get that women can be sexy but too much of anything gets od lame from the titties to the let me stick my ass out parts at the end it was just too much out there to the point where you want something else. his stage presence just wasnt there sadly enough You just said what eveyone else been saying okay we get it, isnt a good video leave it alone damn

He was wack on that show as

He was wack on that show as well...getting Kanye to direct this video was a major mistake...I'm just tired of music as a whole right now...no originality...this video left me pissed like kanye's video for "flashing lights". LVSU: i think i kinda get the concept… maybe its a spin off of Degrassi. if anyone on here actually the show from his first season to his last you would know he was a big BBALL star and then went on to coaching after he was shot. so maybe its just like a of that. since on the show all he did was make 2 pointers and was suddenly the star!if not that…then IDK?! not getting it!

I suppose I could be

I suppose I could be righteously indignant, but really, what's the point? New day, same news. When the war of color politics is being waged in the context of exploitative music videos, you have to ask yourself, is this the figurative hill we want to die on? Seriously, the color of the females in the video doesn't really amount to any substantive issue. It is totally beside the point. It's like trying to exegete a Mother Goose nursery rhyme; there is little, if any, content to sift through, much less any major conclusion to be reached. When we have the luxury of complaining that dark-skinned women did not get enough breast/bottom air time, we are either really screwed or really in need of new hobbies. The music industry is about the bottom line. What people philosophically desire is less important than what they will buy. Also, as for the Willie Lynch references, that document is pretty much agreed to be a relatively recent hoax. People were dazed and confused well before it ever surfaced. I truly believe if people are willing to tune out of the media blitz for a while, we'll rediscover that definitions of beauty, self worth, artistry and excellence should be found amongst our fellow citizens, not streamed live from an idiot box. Instead, we wonder why an abused medium (television) doesn't tell us what we want/need to hear. How did people ascertain those values before TV and radio were ubiquitous? Through actual human interaction. Let's get back to low-tech interaction and cut out the dependency on media to feed our souls and minds.

I'm not surprised by this

I'm not surprised by this crap. He was overhyped and people thought he was going to bring it. The video is wack and he is too. No shocker here. I hate the objectification of women in this video. I see what Kanye was trying to convey but the message is lost with all of the bouncing mess. This saddens me because I'm sure BET will show this video continuously.

Somebody tell this man to

Somebody tell this man to stop failing. How do you perform on an awards show (even if it was the coonery that is BET) on some boring shit, and also agree to let Kanye fuck up your debut video (because he's made one before this, in Canada... are you aware that Kanye apparently has nothing else to do and so he's been spending his time making weird-ass videos that only he likes? :| C'mon now. Stop this.

TINA: YOU ARIE SO

TINA: YOU ARIE SO CLUELESS……..STOP THINKING ITS ABOUT YOU..ITS ABOUT THE “BLACK MEN” Yo I so wasn't making it about me, I understand the situation clearly, my thing is that they are making Fair skinned and Latin women look like hoes anyway so why would a darker women even trip over that. Like I said a darker women shouldn't feel anyway it's the black mans loss and someone else's gain. These music Video are super shit the way these women even allow themselves to be portrayed in the first place, and there have been plenty of darker women who have played the first leading lady in videos why don't people remember those videos, from P Diddy "HE CAN'T LOVE YOU LIKE I DO" LL COOL J "I CAN LOVE YOU BETTER". FABULOUS "BABY DON'T GO Tyreese "SWEET LADY" Mario "HOW COULD YOU" Ne-yo "STAY WITH ME" Ne-yo "SEXY LOVE'" LLoyd "SHE'S FINE TOO" HE even disses the light skinned chick for the Darker Women, the list is endless with DARK Skinned leading ladies in fact some are the only ones in the video so why doesn't everyone remember those Videos HUH, how can you set there and say there aren't Darker women who are in Videos I can mention more video's if you like . But let me make this clear it's not about me I made an opinion which I am in titled to, and just used myself as a reference for a second!!!!

I must agree. I though the

I must agree. I though the video was funny as hell. That is more than likely what they were going for. People you guys are disecting this a little to much. It's just a video of a song. If you don't like it don't watch it. But just let it go. LongTimeLurker: I thought the video was pretty damn funny too! I’m surprised at all the negative comments about it. I lol’ed and I’m hoping that was the point. I’m also REALLY surprised with the complaints about the breasts/cleavage. We all know and have come to expect that women are objectified in (particularly hip hop). Honestly, I was actually pretty excited to see the emphasis be on breasts instead of ass likes it’s been for the past few years! I mean, maybe it’s just ‘cuz I’m a really busty, not-much-ass-having woman! LolHowever, I’m STILL tryna figure out what all the hype is about wheelchair Jimmy anyway (I some Degrassi and a few tears when he got shot!). People been talking about this dude for a good lil while now. He’s decent but I just don’t get what all the hooplah is about…

DAMN! I feel bad for Drake

DAMN! I feel bad for Drake because Kanye obviously duped this poor kid into releasing this wack-ass video. IT'S AWFUL! He should have just done something really simple (like him on the phone in different locations with different girls telling them their all the best - kind of like the Jay-Z "Girls, Girls, Girls" video or Soulja Boy's video for "Kiss Me Through The Phone"), so that people could concentrate on the actual song. Hopefully people will be able to overlook this one. I still love Drake.

Well, i finally saw the

Well, i finally saw the video... like two day slate... but I understand the concept and vision behind it! Its not the best video but I understand what Kanye was thinking. I think we all had different visions of what the video should have been like and then we are given something way in left field! Overall, it wasnt the best but I can understand Kanye's thinking in making it
Ok Kanye! (Got so fed up I finally had to curse out my fianc's picture

OMYGOSH: I guess I agree to

OMYGOSH: I guess I agree to a certain extent I’m am light skinned too, But I’m tired Of Dark skinned chicks having a problem with us though, it’s not our fault we came out this complexion is it??? Look Dark skinned women are just as amazingly Beautiful & Flawless so I think whoever is writing that, shouldn’t be insecure about them not being in this Video because the Video was SUPER SHIT, so why would they even want to be in a Video that contains that type of lame exposure towards women in general?? If I were a dark skinned women right now I would be pretty happy not to see another one of me in a video like that, right now they made the Light skinned Chicks look like soft porn HOES!!!!!Black women come in many shades of Brown, they should not feel insecure about a light skinned chicks it’s STUPID, whether the dumb ass Media or music industry don’t think they are marketable enough or Beautiful enough, they need not to worry about stuff that is so trivial, they are just as BEAUTIFUL, if Black men can’t or won’t see that it’s their loss, further more Black women should start dating out of our own race and stop limiting themselves for the sake of a Brother, why not some black men are WHACK anyway!!!! TINA: For any really light skin chick that plays the poor me “oh why you haitng on me card” bullshyt if you have a daughter that comes out dark and she asks you “mommy why arent there any girls on tv that ever look like me” “why blk men always compliment “red bones”??? then what are you gonna say lol??? huh will you get it then and stop thinking every time a blk girl has a problem with these images you take it as an attack on you because you are stuck on yourself that you cant even see that we are talking about “black men”…my light skin friends all see it TOO and don’t like it either WHO WOULDN’T NOTICE? All races notice it nobody is blind. It's the Willie Lynch mentality (read into it) that shit is sad but it's true, Secondly it is WRONG that the media only depicts one side of beauty the high yellow side or the white side the latina side it's hard to have a people believe that they are beautiful when everything around them tells them that they are not where if one day they leave their house without a perm they are told girl u a nappy headed hoe or you have kids from when they're young saying things like you are mad black. It's sad out her for us black folks and i think a lot of black ppl regardless of their shade have many complexes with their blackness because what has been subconsiously driven into our brains

In one hand i say hey maybe we should let these latin chicks shake their ass on tv having our black women is not a good example for a children in anyways. but then on the other hand u have children seeing these videos where the chicks are all hispanic of light skin with long straight hair etc. etc. etc. this makes young black females look at themselves and say i’m obviously not the standard of beauty in mainstream culture now i’m not even considered beautiful by my own black men/people…. smh I guess I agree to a certain extent I'm am light skinned too, But I'm tired Of Dark skinned chicks having a problem with us though, it's not our fault we came out this complexion is it???

Uhm, Drake is very basic to

Uhm, Drake is very basic to say the least. I'm mean, what's the hype about. there's nothing that seperate him from other "rappers". Although I do like the song, this video was a complete failure (worse than his BET [I mean ETV for my boondocks fans] performance) lol.

I hope by watching this

I hope by watching this stupid video we all realize how much of an idiot the music industry thinks we are. This could have been the best video ever if dumb ass would have just followed the story line of the dang song. Instead the music industry is saying (once again) if we show these idiots tits & ass they will buy it. When will we learn!!!! Dumbest video ever made, that's what i call it now.

And this song as a video

And this song as a video should have been made months ago when the song first came out now it's just played out who wants to see a video for a old ass song i hate when artists do that.... and i'm like trying to get this video is he trying to say you're the best even if u suck at something u still the best to me like i don't get it.. this video is also full of stereotypes smh like he's trying to pretty chicks can't do physical shit and that they are just meant to be that "pretty chicks" this video baffles me

WTF!!! That was so

WTF!!! That was so unexpected. The video was garbage, i didnt not like it at all. I mean what does horriable playing basketball players have to do with the song. I myself am a huge Drake fan and this does not seem like something he thougt up. Hopefully they take this as a lost and do better, much better, next time.

I hope he wasn't trying to

I hope he wasn't trying to appeal to a black audience... Hes gonna be the next Fabolos and never go anywhere with videos exlcuding black women. The video regardless was wack, the song is beautiful and could have had an intelligent MEMORABLE video to go along with it. But the video was easy to forget. Notice the first girl to come from the opposing team was dark w/ short nappy hair??? Drake your fired! Natasha stop writing about him and others who don't respect black women. Trust me the white blogs aren't thinking about them. Lets ruin their careers.

So over this Drake thing after seeing this video. I think that he is letting everyone else be so involved in his career and maybe doesnt have a clear vision on where he wants it to go.

Fuck all this metaphor

Fuck all this metaphor bullshit. Bottom line, the song is about a woman who "makes him beg for it until she gives it up," and looks good with her "sweat pants, hair tied, chillin with no makeup on." Not only that, but in the remix with Nicki Minaj she is a student who is actually carrying BOOKS! Drake is always talking about how much he loves women, REAL women. I don't see how any of that correlates with all the fake ass titties in this video. Yeah, 'Ye fucked him over, but at the end of the day its Drake's project. He shot the wrong fuckin video. Period.
**DrAkE's WiFeY**'s picture

This song is like an ode to

This song is like an ode to women, its uplifting. It is obviously about a woman with class, she made him beg for it until she gave it up. In the remix with Nicki Minaj they talkin about meetin on the campus and she's carryin books and stuff. So explain to me how the video correlates with this AND the statements he's made about how he loves REAL women? Because aint SHIT real about those tits, and I don't give a damn what NOBODY says! He slipped up and shot the wrong fuckin video.
**DrAkE's WiFeY**'s picture

BOOOOOOOOOO BOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

BOOOOOOOOOO BOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! That video was definitely a FAIL! As soon as I saw all the silicone bouncing I knew it was gonna be wack. Seriously, he needs to come better than that for his first video. There's nothing to the video besides T & A...what's sad is that it will be #1 on 106 & Park, a teen show.
