Cash Money Records’ Birdman, Sir Mix-A-Lot and Soulja Boy have all come forward with their reactions to Young Money queen Nicki Minaj‘s NSFW “Anaconda” music video.

Birdman applauded his YMCMB protégé’s latest Pink Print visual.

“@nickiminaj video a murder show lil sis yu a beast #richgang #ymcmb #pg,” Birdman tweeted August 20. (Birdman’s Twitter)

Sir Mix-A-Lot confessed to watching Nicki’s must-see clip nearly 40 times.

“Ok after watching @NICKIMINAJ Anaconda 37times I only have one word to sum up my feelings. DAMNNNNN!!!!!! #AnacondaVideoOnVevo” (Sir Mix-A-Lot’s Twitter)

Nicki treated her fans to the not safe for work visual late Tuesday (August 19) night.


Over the course of the nearly five-minute video (which samples Sir Mix-A-Lot’s Baby Got Back), Minaj runs through a parade of not-so-subtle imagery: She eats bananas, sprays whipped cream on her chest, plays bongos on a backup dancer’s behind, and stands by as piña coladas slowly drip down coconuts. And then, of course, there’s twerking: in a jungle, a workout room, a pool, a white void – all culminating in a dimly-lit lap dance on a very satisfied-looking Drake. (USA Today)

Nicki posted some sultry on-set photos a few days ago.

Nicki posted a string of photos on Instagram on Monday (August 18) while previewing the video, which is set to drop on Wednesday. In the stills, the Young Money Queen is all over Drake. And though he’s neither smiling nor drooling, we assume he was enjoying himself. (MTV)
