    Drake performs like he is trying to do a parody of hip hop.WTF was that??It wasn’t even good enough for me to give him a side-eye.Nicki was cool, not amazing, but cool.

    Drake was a snoozer. Nicki Minaj looks hella good, just don’t sing live please, thanks.

  3. YOOSONDALOOSE October 16, 2011

    Nice. Wish Nicki would stick to singing like she did here. Keep it clean vocally. She’s still a beast.

    Can Drake please stop dressing like he shops at Kmart.

    Damn…what is it with that dude.

    I know some rappers keep it casual and ain’t up for that damn silly 4 lb chain of their face but I’m going to need him to clean it up a little so he can look fresh.

    He and Nicki were cute. I see Nicki’s back to black hair for a minute, cool.

    ^^Actually, his clothes are the only thing I like about him; the fact that he can’t bother.I don’t like rappers that wear expensive and flashy clothes

    Nicki makes a goood job… :X
    Drake hell no !!

  8. Give it up October 16, 2011

    They don’t have any stage presence.

    Other than that Drake was alright. Nicki? Meh

    I don’t like flashy or cheesy either. I get everybody has their style so I try to just ignore those kind of rappers but for Drake it’s like I’m cool with the casual but his clothes always look faded and wrinkled. That’s what I can get down with. All I’m going to need him to do is iron something and use Clorox 2 or something.

    I don’t need him to look crazy but I’d just like him to step it up a little.

  10. Clark Smith October 16, 2011

    I hate this song. This is the first time I hated anything Drake made. hmmm :/

  11. KAT DELUNA FAN October 16, 2011

    Garbage performance,boring and lame.

    Kudos to YM for the proper promo for them 2!

  12. QueenSize October 16, 2011

    Drake was live and nicki wasn’t. Does she ever perform live? The crowd was a lil hype when they heard Nicki’s name but when she came out looking normal there was silence. She’s trapped in that zone. You look crazy or go home. You did it to yourself honey.

  13. kathy October 16, 2011

    Why is it that some of the black women in the industry want to become white. Seems like these once before black women has changed the black look out our history, Nicki face looks really bleached and her inflated b*** looks to funny with those skinny legs.

    Anyway Drake looks like a homeless man who lost his way. Something is going on with him and by them singing that song I would never buy that CD because it sounds awful with Nicki on it.

  14. Diane October 16, 2011

    It’s good to see Nicki perform in heels.

  15. RHI RHI IS QUEEN October 16, 2011

    NIKKI LOOKS AMAZING.. LUV HER

  16. James227 October 16, 2011

    @kathy

    Most of them are already light skin but they go the extra mile to make themselves even lighter by using bleaching cream. Back in slavey time white men only wanted women light skin who look almost white and this is what’s happening now in the industry.

    Pink Friday pt. 2 coming out !

  18. THE LEGENDARY LACEFRONCE. October 16, 2011

    Nicki GARBAJ= GIMMICK

  19. HaterzStayPressed October 16, 2011

    I like the very end when Drake said something about what Nicki was wearing and how he looked at her. He is in love with that chick. Nice…

    And Nicki did NOT bleach herself. C’mon ya’ll…. *smh* Triflin’

  20. zora neale hurston October 16, 2011

    Gee now I guess why Drake pushed his CD released back. This sounds horrible. I like Nicki in a black wig but she needs to get on a good diet! Paging Jennifer Hudson and the weight watcher staff.

  21. am so am so proud of you. October 16, 2011

    i love this song,and they both did there thing love the performance.

  22. RDK October 16, 2011

  24. Seirra October 16, 2011

    Drake and Nicki need to kill them-selves.This is wack.

  25. B**** PLEASE October 16, 2011

    WHY IS EVERYONE IN THE YOUNGMOENY TEAM HAS THE SAME SONG, RAP, ARRANGEMENT ANS STYLE AND NO CREATIVITY AT ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  26. lisa October 16, 2011

    NIKI MINAJ JUST STANDING THERE LOOKING CRAZY AND DOING NO DANCING OR NOTHING, THIS IS WHY I AM GLAD CIARA HAS BEEN SIGNED TO L.A RIED SO WE CAN GET SOME REAL ENTERTAINMENT BACK BECAUSE NOBODY CAN GET IT LIKE CIARA, PLEASE BELIEVE IT!

  27. TIMMI October 16, 2011

    This song is boring, the performance was weak and they have no stage presence or chemistry.

    @ASAP

    There is a large gap between dressing like you shop in kmart and wearing expensive and flashy clothes, in which Drake could easily fall inbetween. Nobody is saying he has to dress flashy like other rappers, but he could easily put a lot more effort it in. I mean, I literally SMELL morning breath when I look at him in this performance.

    @HATERZSTAYPRESSED

    It might be debatable for you as to whether Nicki is bleaching or not, but she is DEFINITELY doing SOMETHING to look her lightest, whether it is down to make-up, sun protection/avoidance or whatever else. It’s a sad issue but it’s also deep rooted and it does exist… And denying it doesn’t help.

  28. Jane Doe October 16, 2011

    A mess from beginning to end. #I’m done

  29. Kathy October 16, 2011

    The thing with Canadians, they all dress boring. Their clothes might cost a lot of $$$$$$$$$$, but they can never pull it off, or make it look nice…….

  30. zora neale hurston October 16, 2011

    RDK

    I didn’t see her thin. She is a pretty girl when she’s not looking like a Lady Gaga inspired circus clown. I like her, not as much as Lil Kim, but I do like her and her rap flow. This song is not good to me with or with out her on it.

  31. DEONTAY October 16, 2011

    drakes song,my girl nicki got the buzz tho!!she fuckkin killed it so all her haterz can “catch a decay”

  32. DEONTAY October 16, 2011

    @kathy….exactly..look at justin bieber,i swear im so tired of lookin at dudes leather jacket..all that money & he wears the same thing!!

  33. DEONTAY October 16, 2011

    && did yall see how people started cheerin when she said “all of them b****** im badder then”

  34. I’ma have to send her back to her maker October 16, 2011

    B**** PLZ. Got nothing to do with bleaching. Kim bleached that’s for sure. But not every black girl gotta be as dark as lil kim. Black ppl come in all different colors. Nicki is mixed with indian and asian. Kim wants to be lighter too. PLZ.

  35. Relle October 17, 2011

    Yup, keep pushing that date back, cuz this $hit is wack…

  36. TIMMI October 17, 2011

    Everyone knows Kim bleached, so what’s your point? If you’re so sure Nicki isn’t bleaching why are you dragging Kim’s irrelevant name into the conversation to destract from Nicki? And why did you say “Kim wants to be lighter *TOO*”??

    And I find it highly insulting that you are trying to educate a black person about black people coming in different colours. Especially since you sound so damn ignant.

  37. DEONTAY October 17, 2011

    Pause at 2:07 && say HEEEEELLLOOOO to roman!!!!
