Big Sean’s ‘A$$’ & The Internet’s ‘Cocaine’

I could launch into an endless tirade about how Big Sean’s latest video for “Dance (A$$) Remix” feat. Nicki Minaj is completely objectifying and only adds to the problem of how women of color are portrayed in pop culture and the media … but I won’t because a) I dropped it to this very song (like Nicki) over the weekend at a party and b) I can’t take any man who wears leather t-shirts and blows on his pinky rings too seriously.

Meanwhile in L.A., Syd the Kid & Matt Martian of Odd Future’s side project The Internet is awesome in theory. I’m not the biggest OFWGKTA fan at all, but I was impressed with her beat-making skills. Still, her idea of a great date kinda gradually starts to suck as it involves a trip to the carnival (ok good), snuggles and rides (nice) and then some lines of cocaine, dropping ecstasy and sparking up a bowl and throwing me out of the car if I can’t handle a potentially life threatening combo of drugs. OK. Shock value to keep up with her crew maybe or just good for SEO business? Storyline aside, it’s a good visual directed by Matt Alonzo.

Check out both videos below and remember to just say no:

  • I basically refuse to watch “Ass” and accept every challenge to avoid having to hear the track. In similarity to you Shannon, I can only rant about the song/video so much without looking like a hypocrite for the raunchy songs that I do enjoy. I’m just not impressed with Big Sean, as someone who’s waited years for the rapper to get what I thought was much deserved exposure.

    And the best part of the video for The Internet’s “Cocaine” was the end, for two reasons.

  • Wait, what were the two reasons? I like “Ass” … #sorrymom and I’m not a huge Big Sean fan. I find him pretty useless, but I’m also grown and tiny men with Zoe Saldana arms don’t get me steamy. But that beat, a flip of MC Hammer’s “Hammer Time”? Come on! You love it! And Nicki dropping it totally took me back to my college/early days in NYC. HOLLER. As for the Internet song, guess it wouldn’t be so awesome/ seo friendly to call it “a great  date between two girls” but I like this video. *Parlour shrug*

  • Lol Hillary… no – I do not like the “Hammer Time” flip.

  • Garbage. Both of them.
