New Video: Nicki Minaj – ‘Massive Attack’

Published: Wednesday 31st Mar 2010 by Sam

The video for Nicki Minaj‘s debut single ‘Massive Attack’ premièred literally a few moments ago. Check out the clip in its entirety above. Sean Garrett features…

Hmm. While the song is not rocking my world (the word doo-doo comes to mind), its accompanying video was a commendable first solo effort. The video really encapsulated Minaj’s ‘larger-than-life’ / cartoon-esque character particularly well. There were many an instance where the overwhelming feeling of ‘seen it / heard it all before’ came over me (see: Lil’ Kim). Yet Nicki’s undeniable charisma – which hasn’t been seen in years with female Hip-Hop – just about redeems the Young Money star.

Not bad.

What do you think of the video?

  3. GetitIn March 31, 2010

    This video was good for her first solo one.

    I thought there was too much scenes of the car driving from far away, but other than that, it was hot.

    At the end, Nicki was rolling around in the mud looking like a Beyonce or Shakira. Loved it!

    Okay Nicki is giving me Beyonce and Lil Kim in this video

  11. ~Team Weezy~ March 31, 2010

    I liked it even though her body (booty) was photoshopped. It served it’s purpose. It was truly a Nicki video and it kind of makes me like the song more!

  25. trina b March 31, 2010

    lmao this s*** stupid as f***. i was expecting this b**** to come harder with her first solo effect. what a dissapointment. Is Sean Garrett gay?

  26. STLOUISDON March 31, 2010

    WTF WAS THAT SHE IS SO OVERRATED FOR HER RAPPING SKILLS SHE JUST NEED TO TAKE BACK SHOTS AND SMILE FOR THE CAMERA…

  27. MaZ March 31, 2010

    The video is hot! Like it!

    Still not feeling the song…maybe it will grow on me.

    Nicki can THANKS Lil’Kim for paving the way for her.

    Without Kim no Nicky!

  28. Junior in Jamaica March 31, 2010

    Video is alright, repetitive.

    Her Gaga-like antics kinda weirds me out at times though. She is a little too eccentric and her style (loony) can get old.

    The song…I am finding it HARD to get into it…Sean Garrett should keep his mug behind the scenes and quit hitting songs with his no vocal talent behind!!

  29. Clos March 31, 2010

    LOVED IT!!!!! This gave me that Missy Vibe! This definately made me like the song more and Nikki bout to do BIG THINGS!

  30. BladerRunin March 31, 2010

    The songs is BANNAS!! Obviously you don’t understand Hip Hop. So fall back

  31. AalexisR (The Bahamas) March 31, 2010

    I expected more but it was hot. SONG had so much potential, can’t believe this is the final.

  32. KAMI March 31, 2010

    Hello, Amber Rose <3

    This song..still needs to grow on me. I really like her though. Someone here said that she was THE Black Lady Gaga, and I'm starting to sorta agree with them. Hey, at least she's giving growing black girls a new realm of style to expand into instead of the typical images we've been seeing for the past decade or so. Nicki's a breath of needed fresh air.

    I can also clearly see where she's idea ripped a couple of things though.
    1 – The concept of the video had a mixture of Rihanna and Lil Kim (I like it, relax)
    See: "Hard" meets "How Many Licks"

    2 – Lady Gaga's glasses and edge…Lol..the pink glasses when she was in the 'wilderness.'

    This video isn't ground breaking, but I can tell that this is just the tip of the ice berg with her. Stay tuned.

    I honestly hope she sticks around though.
    Lil Mama came out with a similar swag a little while ago, and she was only around for about a year or so. Female MC's are hard to keep around. Especially the good ones.

    I hope you keep wowing us, Nicki <3

  33. CrackisWack March 31, 2010

    she looks s*** in the green wig but to be this damn colorful this video was a snoozer. And i like the song but it don’t sound like nobody’s hit. music today…. i swear! i can’t!

  34. YouPutTheLimeInTheCoconut March 31, 2010

    The video was alright. I definitely got a lot of vibes, in particular Rihanna’s “Hard” video, as well as some Lil’ Kim with all them wigs. Dead @ Amber Rose, and that’s not a good thing either. Sean Garrett’s fine ass (from the neck down) was a nice addition as well. I’d give it a 7/10. The song has fully grown on me though, I’m bumping this ish on my iPod.

    I must say, this trick just might win me over as a fan if she keeps it up.

  35. AMBER SHANICE ROSE March 31, 2010

    CUTE VERY CUTE

  36. S*** March 31, 2010

    This is garbage, Niki is like the Blk Lady Gaga in that shes Creative & gimmicky. Nikki is no more than SPOOF of real rappers, same goes for Lil Wayne & Drake. The video is OK I guess But the song?? NEGATIVE. Nikki should have stopped at the ‘5 Star’ Remix & called it a day Cuz the more I see her the more pitiful she becomes. Her lyrics are so PRE-K, STUPID & her silly delivery is even worst. & dont even get me started on that Dialog of hers, I think shes trying to impersonate someone she saw on TV like somebody from The Power Rangers or something. WHAT A JOKE.

  37. ALLNIGHTDONTSTOP2010 March 31, 2010

    Lmfao @ some of the comments ………But anyways I f**** with this HARD hands down Nicki is on her shyt sorry if other female mcs were on their shyt they would be spittin harder but *brief pause* they non existent Nicki could have easily gave us somethin simple but then again she wouldnt have stood out imo the barbie image is only a gimmick
    Nicki can get gritty when she wants too trust her album aint even drop yet she just gettin started “massive attack”

  38. the one March 31, 2010

    im dead!

  39. the one March 31, 2010

    she is like a blood relative in the direct line of descent of LIL KIM YESSSSSSS !

  40. DSki March 31, 2010

    Niki Go Hard you better do it B****!!! Rep NYC I am sure the best is yet to come.

  41. Babaloo March 31, 2010

    KAMI

    first you criticize us for saying that lady gaga ripped off fashion and then you go off saying how she is allowed to wear what she wants but then you criticize nicki minaj and say that she copied from lady gaga.

    make up your mind. nicki minaj will dominate lady gaga

  42. Gucci March 31, 2010

    I loved it the video. The song will have to grow on me though.

    I really like Nicki and her silly lyrics. I’m kind of happy she’s not the typical hood rat that tries to act masculine and hardcore. She looks great and I appreciate a woman who can act like an actual woman. Oh, and please stop comparing Lady Gaga and/or Beyonce to every living creature on this planet. They didn’t invent anything 🙂

  43. Kami April 1, 2010

    BABALOO –
    There’s a difference between someone who actually takes something and makes it their own and someone who uses the same concept in every way possible, even if that product launch is successful. Nicki’s very creative for what she’s doing. I doubt any one else in her realm would be able to pull that off. Like I said, its been a while since anyone since (Kim) encouraged people to bump up their eccentricity in black culture by wearing wigs and costume-y, yet s*** outfits. She is essentially the new Kim and no one’s really complaining. I was just pointing out how the video is merged of concepts that we’ve seen and it works for what she’s about x the actual lyrics of the song.

    Also, Nicki and Gaga are in two different leagues and genres.
    Pop and Hip Hop, essentially. Until international fashion designers start building entire fashion movements, begging her to wear their clothes, and deeming her as an ultimate inspiration when it comes to what she wears, then we can have this argument.

  44. Nah April 1, 2010

    Ugh. Just all around wack. Those stupid she faces she makes don’t make up for her lack of talent. Stupid song with a stupid pointless video.

  45. Simply Phillip Brown April 1, 2010

    Giving you a little Missy with a whole lotta Kim. Why was I blasting this song, while in the shower, I love It!

  46. Jace April 1, 2010

    OMG is this KIm or Nicki!!!!!! Kim references are all up and throughout this girl……I miss Kim…The old Kim….if only we could have her back…smh

  47. PaperTraill April 1, 2010

    The Day her Album comes out I will be Buying Lil’ Kim’s “Hard Core” again. She did sound good on Robin’s song but she can not put together a full CD with 12 hot songs.

    I still can’t believe that Hard Core came out November 12, 1996.

  48. Puppy Love April 1, 2010

    Just Okay. Maybe I should watch it again..

  49. ITS MY OPINION April 1, 2010

    wack

  50. L April 1, 2010

    i’m sorry I like Nicki Minaj but this video is a mess. This looks like LIL KIM from the “Notorious K.I.M” era, Rihanna’s Hard and Lady GaGa’s “telephone”… Were those shades made out of lipgloss?

  51. lostonez April 1, 2010

    this is jus str8 up garbage…

  52. parisian girl April 1, 2010

    i’m not feeling the music but the video is good!

  53. roadsareendless April 1, 2010

  54. Arfa April 1, 2010

    Im feeling this song!
    Sick video, its kinda like get your freak on VS hard videos
    But its sick I dont think its for everyone and I dont think it will hit the charts that hard 2.
    But I love it!

  55. ADE April 1, 2010

    absolutely disgusting…Amber Rose and Nicki Minaj in the same vicinity = TRASH

  56. djy2kmalone April 1, 2010

  57. Blue April 1, 2010

    Looks like Rihanna Hard video with a lower budget.

  58. Bran ‘nu April 1, 2010

    Omg Who would say this Is cute. The Truth Is Amber White Looked Better then Nicky In Her own Video. It’s Stupid Looking (Very Weird). Only thing I could say is She has A Fatt Ass. Lil Wayne Should Of stopped Her. On this One!!

    I really Think This should of not Been the First Video She Put Out as A single. Its Whack.
    She Look Crazy.

    Please She Is staying at the Bottom Of my List.

    1. Lil Kim
    2. Foxy Brown
    3. Trina
    4.Missy Elliot
    5. Remy Ma (Even had Better Videos that Get you Hype!!)
    6. Eve ( She rep Philly Thats My B**** But she Hood)
