Drake’s Nothing Was The Same album is arguably one of the biggest records of this year, which is why the video for his new single “Worst Behavior” was so highly anticipated by his fans. Drake released the video today and the Canadian native shows off his Memphis, TN roots, which is where his dad is from. According to consequenceofsound.net:
“Drake may hail from Toronto, but he’s fully reaping Memphis, Tennessee in the video for the Nothing Was The Same single ‘Worst Behavior.’ Helmed by Director X (‘Started From The Bottom’, “HYFR”), the 10-minute video features appearances from the Hot Boys’ Turk, Project Pat, Juicy J, and Papa Drake himself, Dennis Graham, who looks like a hybrid between a pimp and a used car salesman. (Mr. Graham hails from Memphis, which explains the choice of locale.)
Continuing to prove his masculine qualities, Drizzy also fills the video with loads of rap clichés, including rapping in front of muscle cars and brooding on street corners, plus there’s a funny scene involving the OVO owl.”
The video is definitely an attempt by Drake to show a grittier side of himself, and it’s something he does quite well. While no one will ever think of Drake as a “gangsta” rapper, a song like “Worst Behavior” and the accompanying video reminds people that he’s not just a singer, but that he can actually rap.
