First impression...Tig Ole Bitties.
What is up with Drake and his cardigans?
Funny thing is that in the face Drake looks old enough to be a HS bball coach.
What does basketball have to do with this song and vice-versa?
"When you're out there and they put that 'D' on you. Take that 'D'!...And you all know good and well what we can do in 2 minutes" <-- WOMP!
I'm not sure what Kanye was trying to do with this video but I definitely didn't expect anything like this. This video is made for 106 & Park where nobody really cares if the video correlates to the content of the song. Drake, I expected better!
And the fact that there are probably lots of other people out there that expected better may end up being the biggest challenge Drake has to face. Living up to the hype. Lyrically, Drake is dope and nobody is denying that. But at this point he's been put up on such a pedestal it's probably going to be hard to meet most people's expectations. If this video were from someone you'd never heard of who wasn't getting radio spins without a deal or selling out venues across the country off the strength of a friggin mixtape, this *might* be a good look for a first video. But for Drake, it just won't cut it.
If you ask me, Kanye set Drake up on this one. I would not have signed off on this joint if I was Drake.
