hmmm, I am seriously feelin you as an artist but this video (i get where you are going with it), is ass at best. Please, please puhleeaaase shoot a different video. Don't give this type of wackness to your fans. It's not fair to them.

Kayne should stick to making tracks. Drizzy, the video was a miss. Come up with a remix or something...

Kanye fucked this whole single up. This is a stupid ass video. You need a do-over. Your blog is the only place where I seen anything good about this trash ass video!!!!!!

Yo Drake...son, that whole "so far gone" mixtape was crack...and i could relate to your verses in so many ways but yo WTF was that video about? The "Best I ever Had" video completely dissappointed me because it was nothing like what i expected. Although you were tryna be different or Kanye was tryna be different, this idea is horrible...yo you gotta step it up next time cuz i've told ppl since 2 years ago that your the NEXT BIG THING (no homo) for hip hop son so better luck next time...

I think Drake is dope. He murders all of the Freshmen and most of the old heads too. Kid has mad talent. All of his tapes are on rotation in my whip. I am unashamed to admit I am a fan. I also like Nas, Lennox Lewis, M Ali, M Gladwell, D'Angelo, Gandhi, Shakespeare, Dickins et al. I just like good things.. Drake is good. I am not a hater....

Kanye played you. Why alienate part of your core demographic? Kanye makes good beats and has an interesting personality but video concepts/production/ Naah.

If Kanye didn't make beats who would really care about all of the rest of the stuff he does? Right about now he is more famous for being Kanye than anything else. Pop will eat itself... So Far Gone>>>>> 808 and say it isn't so??

You have had enough talent to get this far with your own crew. 40, Oli, those dudes get it in. Stick with them. I am sure a member of your team could have done a far better job than Kanye.

Celebs can be dickriders too. Take what you need from them and bounce. If it's a collabo make it a Bun or Kardi type affair.


Easy to get to the top of the mountain if you have the determination, nous and stamina but it is just as easy to fall off..

Add this to the BET fiasco = TWO STEPS BACKWARD.

Your team is strong, your blog game proper, your ear for beats is on point, you dare to be different ( Peter & Bjorn, Santa et al ), your lyrics/wordplay is on another level. The charisma, the quotables, the humility...It is all there.

Kanye is Kanye. Do Drake. This was not what I expected from a kid who has been making Sun Tze moves. Your boys ( Oli & Co ) need to shake you son. This was not a good look.

Yall keep blamin the video on Kanye... like drake had no input... like Kanye never won video of the year multiple times

Musikizme5 said...

I do think if drake is to really LISTEN TO HIS FANS and try to please them, whether come up with a better video or some other solution to fix their disappointment, he'll be one of the most respected artist because he'll bounce right back on the strength of his fans. after all just the fact that he listened to them and make a good decision to fix their disappointment after reading all these comments would instantly earn him more respect in the eyes of his fans ..because that means he acknowledges that he's doing everything for them and his head is not in the clouds..kinda like the president actually is there to please the people or else they get voted out by the same people that voted him in..do the right thing homie...

julian said...

A son that shit was mad funni
what would this world be without big breasted women

thatlovegirl said...

OMG! Are BET After Dark Videos back??? Well what can you expect from Kanye West?? Remember his Work Out Plan Video? Same thing ASS & TITTIES! I wonder how the edited version is going to be?

mighty mar said...

Greg said...

Yall all failing to realize that Kanye West directed the video..of course its not what you expect! Kanye is different and thats what makes him great..Drake is different and thats why everyone loves him...

Anonymous said...

oh i was a big fan, until this. lol
i understand tha metaphor of tha video, well because i can relate ;]
not that i hav jumping tit-tays around evrywhere i go but, becuase i mos def hav a team tha collectively makes me happy... BUUUUUT! women were exploited in this video!! it shows women in a HOE-ISH, undervalued WAYS!


im sorry, but Drake wud hav ta kiss alot more than my hand to get me ta see him as the rest of the rappers & men exploiting women.


c'mon be original!

Mr. Pensacola said...

ok, on one hand, i say do what you want. there have been great artists that did stuff that people didn't agree with, but still sold records and touched lives. on the other hand, i feel anyone that has been given the power to speak to masses should use their words and status wisely. with that being said, go forward and handle ya biz.

K'lajh (backrowdmv.blogspot.com) said...

F what every one else says. This is one of my favorite videos ever!!!! I think people got too caught up in the tits and all that and didnt look further to see the irony and humor. And of course the females expected that same tired ass treatment with all that corny ass LL type shit. Im glad yall didnt do that and went left with it good job!!

Boy Wonder said...

If it weren't for the end, I wouldnt have liked it at all to be honest. Not impressed fellas. Ughh

Caramel Garcia. said...

This video is terrible. Love the song though.

Meru Aray said...

WHAT????????????
That was the WACKEST, most LOW-BUDGET video I have ever seen in my ENTIRE LIFE!
My level of disappoint is MAJOR!
What the hell was he thinking? That shit was AWFUL. I knew the minute it started with them spending too many seconds on the confetti, then the gargantuan boobs flying everywhere in slow motion. Then the awkwardness of Drake rapping in the stairwell with the clipboard, the camera was there WAY too long. Then the bad acting of the bball players. Then, them trying to put humor in the video when it is not a humorous song......it was just DUMB. BEYOND dumb! Who in the HELL came up with the video concept? YUCK! Bad move for a PREMIERE video that everyone's been waiting on. Jeez, I have to look up who was responsible for this hot ass mess. Concept was wrong, them breaking for dialogue was wrong, it was just ALL wrong.
I call do-over. Please....Kanye did this on purpose. His videos don't look this crappy!

Can you pleaseeee come and do a live performance in Saint Paul/Minneapolis, MN? You'll be even MORE blessed!! =)

LadybugCOB said...

I don't know why, but I expected so much more outta this video than I got. Seriously? Titties and ass all over the place?! Was there a need for all of that?!
Even still you are a great rapper. I just can't listen to the song the same I used to. I keep seeing tittes bouncing around in my head (not appetizing).

Anonymous said...

big fan drizzy was expecting better video you should have stuck to the "thats why i never follow yal suggestions i just always did my own thing" but u did the opposite with this video instead of going with what u wanted to do u jumped on kanyes suggestion without hesitation the video doesnt do the song justice as all lets it down big time... but the titties are great but what happened to "making your first video groundbreaking"

Rikki Bakes said...

Watching this video was hard for me.
Seeing something so waste, come from two of my favorite artists, two of the greatest artists out right now, was hard for me; Because I didn't want to hate it, but I do.
Actually I was disgusted watching it, and I was offended.
To be honest (as if I'm not already) I think it ruined the song. I wake up to 'Best I Ever Had' every morning as my alarm, and I changed it the night I saw the video.
This is my favorite song, and I can't bring myself to even listen to it anymore, because of how hurt I was from the video.
With the amount of talent used to make this video, Kanye West and Drizzy Drake Rogers, and such a beautiful song, I was expecting something magical.
Something really special could have been done with a song like 'Best I Ever Had', and with the imagination of Kanye West, director of the video... it was just a huge let-down altogether.
Respect was lost after seeing the video; and I hate that that's the case.

Bowardk!d said...

Actually After Awhile The Video Starts To Grow On You Definitley WIth It Playing Every Hour On MTV Jams
Lol I've Grown To like The Video
Only Suggestion Do Your Own Thing Next Don't Follow The Ideas Of A Artist Like Kanye He's Cool Dont Get Me Wrong But His Ideas May Go Over The Heads Of The Common Folk lol Proven Example THe 230 Comments Dissin This Video lol Due Them Not Understanding The Messsage

Montgomery said...

Video was cheesy. Kanye gave you a busted idea. I hope the rest of the videos match your lyrics and vibe. This video was beneath you son! Beneath your talent!

reem said...

macdaddysuperfly57 said...

wtf this video didnt even make sense?! kanye is such a faggot for directing this shit.

Princess said...

I have to agree with the majority this didn't cut it...yes after hearing the explanation of it it makes SENSE..but still not what I wanted to see as a fan. It should have been a related vid going with the idea of the song..focusing on the girl who is his "Best" I was highly dissapointed and a little offended because I felt that if you didn't want a girl to be a "Video Girl" then you go back and use them...to convey a message that no one gets..then its problem. Kanye please stick to what you know.. Still love Kanye and Drake just expected much better. Sorry!

Teri said...

my thing is i get the concept but the song really doesnt fit the video!! At All! If your gonna use those lyrical abilities to make a hit song, why not have a classy. Sexy, yet respectful video. It kinda hard to get over the tits flying everywhere, and the dialogue. It was kinda suckish. I say do a classy video but still make it Sexy like you are. Do Over. BET wont play that shit.

cRaNiiuM said...

fuck that, this shit was funny cool viedo,do what you do drake

cRaNiiuM said...

but then again for the strength of your women demographics sake you might want to do another version fam..lol

Theresa said...

This isn't wat I thought It would be....but it's deffinitely a kanye joint...lol

Anonymous said...

i love both drake and kanye but im very disappointed with this video...

Sexy Runner said...

Sad face for Drake. But I still love him tho.

friedy0703 said...

i think that this video is saying that the entire game can't just be all about the girls because then you can never win, he's saying that yes he's into the girls but that's not how he can get further with his career

Stainton said...

This was an EPIC Failure.

Nailah said...

Im a female...i dont find this video degrading at all its a funny video....i think lil kim and trina are more degrading dont you think???
