Nicki Minaj plus B.o.B equals pure hip-hop gold.
The “Starships” and the “So Good” singer have released a brand new video for their collaboration on their single “Out of My Mind.” The duo battles, flirts, and gets frisky in the stylized new addition to the music sphere.
“Out of My Mind” tells the story of a mentally unstable inmate – played by B.o.B himself – locked in solitary confinement. Lyrics play out, highlight the chaos whirling through the deranged soul’s mind.
“Like Nostradamus and da Vinci combined / So paranoid of espionage / I'm watching my doors and checking my blinds / My brain is on vacation, they telling me / And I'm bi-polar to disparity”
B.o.B is show behind bars in a small, windowless room…
Images shake in a strobe light effect. B.o.B flashes in and out in a variety of different looks… Sometime in a straight jacket, sometimes cloaked in a monk robe, sometimes in Hannibal Lector mask…
Then Nicki – playing the part of a pink-haired doctor - comes in to assess B.o.B’s mental state, which quickly turns into a full-on lap dance.
The rapper strips off her doctor’s jacket, revealing her black bra and leopard-pink undergarments and showing her companion who’s boss.
“What's your name? B.o.B?/ So, they callin' you Bob? / Stop playing, n-gga, you know that I'm known for the Bob / Couple hit songs, got you thinking you a heartthrob”
The video concludes at with B.o.B in front of a parole board, where he somehow manages to seduce one of the board members while chained to a chair. Intense? Vulgar? Disturbing?
Yes to all three! Check it out for yourself.
