Great Expectations: Analysis & Debate on Drake's "Best I Ever Had" Video

0drakebuzzThe most difficult position to be in for any artist is for everybody to be paying attention to what you’re doing.  In the hip-hop/R&B/Black music community, right now, Drake is that dude.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I do not understand dude’s buzz.  He’s a good rapper/singer combo guard, but I’m just not wowed.  However, I have to come to homey’s defense right now since it seems like everybody and their mama is upset at young Drizzy for his video for “Best I Ever Had”.

(Video is most not-safe-for-work-safe-for-work video ever.)

I love this video, despite itself.

Huh?

Glad you asked.

In this Kanye West directed video there is basically no point.  In fact, the video doesn’t seem to have much in the way of a story or concept (though Drake did his BEST to give a bogus concept explanation to Complex magazine).  It seems the video’s main purpose was to show boobs-a-floppin’.

Glory day.

As soon as I saw the video I knew the sh*tstorm was coming.  Let’s run down the “problems” with the video, shall we?

– all the chicks are lightskint

– all the chick’s boobs are on display, pretty much throughout the video

– lots of gratuitous stretching, Rosa Acosta style shots

– no real point to the video, period

– lots of chexual innuendo (“take the D”)

like most Kanye West videos, the video doesn’t relate to the song whatsoever

That’s a lot of fodder for discussion, but none of that is a good reason for it to be catching flack – hell it’s the general outline for most of today’s videos.  The reason he’s catching flack is this:  it’s the video for “Best I Ever Had”, the song that makes most women love the Young Angel.  With this one song, women everywhere who pretty much don’t care for most of today’s rap found the one man who acknowledged the ladies and put them on a pedestal even if in other songs he referencing women as ho*s.

That, and that alone is his biggest problem.  Women have expectations for Drake.  A while back I posited 10 reasons why women love Drake, and though I didn’t mention it, this song is largely the reason.  Women decided that Drake was the respectful savior to today’s generally exploitation heavy hip-hop while forgetting one simple fact.

Drake is still a man.

(I actually think the video is semi-genius; make the music for the ladies but make the videos for the men.  Great Gatsby!)

Once the video aired, many women were up in arms (I’ve stayed reading message boards about this because the response befuddles me, from women AND men).  How could Drake make such an “ignorantly, exploitative video”?  How come there are so many boobs?  How come all the boob-ers are light skinned?

Aside: I’ve often wondered if Black women would feel better if the exploitation was more diverse?  A lot of the arguments about videos is that all the women are light, ethnically ambiguous to white looking women.  If they were all darkskint, would that be better?  Is exploitation more palatable as long as everybody gets their shot to be exploited?  Methinks not.  Then again, I didn’t think Jodeci would end up on crack.

From an artistic standpoint, the video adds absolutely nothing to the song.  In fact, the video just comes across as some sh*t they basically decided to do on a random Wednesday, and because they could, they called everybody they knew and just started rolling film with a bunch of litebrite models.  No harm, no foul really. And if it was anybody but Drake, this video would probably be written off as just another video that does nothing more than exist.  Kind of like a Plies video.

But this is Drake, hip-hop’s wunderkid.  He’s making music women can enjoy and appreciate without feeling like they’re betraying the gender.  He’s not supposed to be like every other rapper out there.  He’s wheelchair Jimmy for goodness’ sake.

Great expectations.

Poor guy, really.  First he gives a sh*tty performance on the national stage on BET, now he’s giving the boob treatment to his “respectful” chick song.

Oh well.  Score one more for mankind.  I personally don’t see the big deal.  Rather, I wonder what people were expecting?  Aside from this one song, most of his other songs fit right in with the “regular rapper mold”.  Plus he runs with Lil Wayne and Kanye – proprietor of the “Throw Some D’s” remix aimed at D-cups, not Daytons.

Perhaps, I’m being shortsighted.

Panama Jackson is pretty fly for a light guy. He used to ship his frito to Tito in the District, but shipping prices increased so he moved there to save money. When he's not saving humanity with his words or making music with his mouth, you can find him at your mama's mama's house drinking her fine liquors. Most importantly, he believes the children are our future.

    hmm I didnt think his explanation of the concept was bogus.. I mean thats what I got from watching it before I clicked to the article.
    I mean, he got a lot of ho’s on his team and all of them the best.. bouncing boobs, running and stretching **tada**!!!

    LOL I aint mad about it.. had you not posted the video it I would have never seen it anyway.. I mean I dont really watch music videos’ but that being said, I mean it aint the best but it definitely aint the worst….
    hell I still havent seen the “turn my swag” on joint from Soulja Boy after all the ruckus it caused…I think I will you tube that one to and see what all the fuss is about..
    people like to debate shyt and take a stand on bullshyt all the time.. this is nothing new, and when you have a lot of positive press and buzz you will get the negative.. eh..it happens
    I need him to go on and make a vid for that “successful” joint..
    thats my shyt…

    my post is random as hell…LOL

      @shay_d_lady, he REALLY needs to do a vid for “Sooner Than Later”…that would be the classique!

      But it would also be kinda wild to make yet a second vid for a free *ss album…

    That’s where Drake lost it. His explanation sounded like something Sarah Palin might say. Really, though, I feel bad for him because it’s his first vid, and he was dumb enough to let Kanye direct it. The camerawork is crappy throughout.

      I sorta like how he blended sports with sexay time (the sport was sort of a metaphor), but I think he sorta fell short on the follow through. I didn’t truly get it ’til the “take the D” line…I have an inclination as to where he was going, but I don’t think he got there. lol

        Yeah, he was trying to hard with that line because it really makes no basketball sense.

        I guess the sports angle was the only way he could tie-in the random stretching, even though I’ve never seen anyone do a split before they played basketball maybe they should’ve tried gymnastics.

        The best line was “but Drake, all you taught us how to do is stretch” lmao!

        Otherwise the video was bad simply because it took a lot of effort to do nothing, for all that he could’ve shown random chics in bikinis running (bouncing up and down) on the beach for 5 minutes it would’ve had the same effect.

      I think the cinematography is rather good. I especially liked the scene where the mascot dunks the ball and how it was captured. The eye-candy shots are done well and they really “sell” what the video is about. The entire slow motion feel of the video really pulls the viewer in to hang on each of the visuals also.

    Before hearing the explanation, I thought the same thing Drake actually said. Really. That was my take on it from jump.

    I think the criticism is boolsheet, but I’ll wait until I’m less than 4 sheets to the wind to give my response.

    I’ll see you all in the morning when there’s like 70 responses at 7 AM.

    P.S. Next time I hear another chick talkin that boolsheet about it being too many light skinned wazy haired chicks in the video, I’mm bring up the fact that it ain’t been a regular light skint leading dude since the S-Curl went out. All y’all wanted for yeears was “tall dark and handsome”… So if yall can have y’all way, gimme my Brazilian yoga instructors doing vertical hurdler stretches while the Puerto Rican/Italian/Colombiana mix holds her legs firmly. Thank you, Drake.

Next time I hear another chick talkin that boolsheet about it being too many light skinned wazy haired chicks in the video, I’mm bring up the fact that it ain’t been a regular light skint leading dude since the S-Curl went out. All y’all wanted for yeears was “tall dark and handsome”… So if yall can have y’all way, gimme my Brazilian yoga instructors doing vertical hurdler stretches while the Puerto Rican/Italian/Colombiana mix holds her legs firmly. Thank you, Drake.

    As a well endowed former women’s basketball player i don’t take great offense to the video. Mostly because I know this is c learly fantasy. There is NO WAY any chick with that much boobage could play GOOD basketball and wear them skimpy tops. NO WAY. You can’t play any good D like that. You ain’t takin nobody to the basket with all that flip floppin around like that. This explains the need to have this video in slow mo AND have a bunch of sucky players because in regular play it woudl look a hot mess and in regular play in these outfits there is no winning. Or at least, not as nice as it looks in slow mo. I just think Kanye was lookin for something to spend money on and he thought hey why not some big boobs playing basketball, end of story.

    Drake, I am not that huge a fan of. Yeah I like half his mixtape. I have another mixtape of his but am not interested in listening to it. I see right through his lil babyface nice guy shenanigans too. He ain’t foolin me.

      @Liz,

      “There is NO WAY any chick with that much boobage could play GOOD basketball ”

      Well that’s why they lost.

        @Me fail english?, naw, they lost cuz all they could do was stretch.

        and they were shorter en masse than the other team.

        and Drake was their coach.

        and his best advice (which is actually pretty good advice if you think about it) was to take that D.

        so i guess the better question is…

        …how in the flying F*CK did they get to the championship game in the first place?

        how come nobody’s asking THAT question?

      As treasurer of the IBTC (Itty Bitty T!tty Committee) and current hooper…I must say that I don’t necessarily feel your pain with the “well-endowment” but you are correct. There’s no way I could hoop in the ish those chicks were wearing.

      Now if I’m doing some role playing with my man…that’s another story. lol

      You can’t play any good D like that.

      so you cant use the d’s on d? i’d imagine theyd be an asset because the other chicks would be trying to avoid em, kind of like how nobody wants to guard the random too hairy shirtless dude at the park

      Not to mention, that ish hurts– having to double up and whatnot so you don’t knock your head off just to get your cardio in. Running, jumping jacks, light stretches — they just get in the way!
