Ludacris And Nicki Minaj Celebrate The Ladies In “My Chick Bad” Video Behind-The-Scenes
In his latest single “My Chick Bad,” Ludacris boasts about his lady’s sinful and scandalous ways: “My chick bad, my chick ’hood, my chick do stuff that your chick wish she could.” Since his “chick” in the song is Twitter hashtag inspiration Nicki Minaj, we’re not going to argue with him—we think she would do a lot of things we wouldn’t dare to dream of doing. (Like offer a $50, 000 reward for a stuffed animal.) The TAJ-directed video for “My Chick Bad” drops tomorrow, but check out the female-heavy behind-the-scenes action below:
Ludacris feat. Nicki Minaj – “My Chick Bad” (behind the scenes)
Ludacris isn’t taking his album title Battles of the Sexes lightly—it appears that he’s making a conscious decision to showcase more women, and not just in a how-low-can-you-go contest. With Minaj in the single’s video and female rappers Trina, Diamond and Eve featured on the remix vid (shot the same day), there was definitely more estrogen on set than normal. “Ain’t been this many women on a song or a video set in I don’t know how long,” says Luda. “But we makin’ history, and it feels damn good!”
Lil Kim and Monica are also featured on Battles of the Sexes, making this Luda’s most female-centric release yet. (Mary J. Blige was the last female guest vocalist on a Ludacris track, in the song “Runaway” from his 2006 album Release Therapy.)
One more woman with a shout-out on the track: Elin Woods. “I be comin’ out swinging like Tiger Woods wife,” raps Ludacris. Being that Tiger is stating a public apology tomorrow, the video dropping the same day is certainly good timing.
