Drake Video: What The Jamaicans Are Saying?


Lost in translation? During Drake’s adventure in the clip for “Find Your Love,” the rapper was warned not to chase the top shotta’s girl — but he still ran after leading lady Maliah Michel. But what exactly was the sage advice he turned down? The thick accents in the video make it difficult to tell — but MTV News got the lowdown.

“Consciously speaking, that girl there is trouble,” the elder Jamaican man tells Drake as the video opens. “That girl is going to make you get yourself in serious trouble.”

Drake ignores the words and the man gets a bit more serious with his warning.

“Hey, skipper, I’m telling you — see if you look at that country side there, at Jamaica,” he says. “That man there named Puffy is a bad man — a bad man. You don’t want to get involved or you’ll be dead. Take me serious, that man is a bad man, mad man — that man kills people. You just come here; you don’t really know it. You don’t want to get involved with him.”

The man then assures Drake he doesn’t want to get involved in a world like that and that he should focus on his album and his music. However, Drake still refuses to listen and ventures back into into town to find his love interest. The video then rewinds back to when Drake and Michel first encounter each other; Mavado, who plays the ganglord, has men on lookout who spot the rapper talking to Michel, his woman.

The rude boys watch Drake and their boss’ girl leave the party for a romantic liaison on the beach. After the pair take off, one of Mavado’s goons races via motorcycle to tell his boss about what happened. They talk about the “brown boy” who has been in town causing trouble.

“Get my dog them,” Mavado tells his underling. “Tell them we are going on the road.”

As Drake arrives at the house Michel is located in “Gully Side,” Mavado and his men creep up behind him and capture the rapper. The final scene features Drake bound by rope as Mavado coldly informs him he’s crossed the line.

“Aight, so you want come to Jamaica and look at my woman? You hear me. Here. Done. Do it,” he says as he hands the gun over to Michel to finish Drake. “Anything you want that’s in Jamaica belongs to the gully cat.”

Did you think Drake perished at the hands of his leading lady? Let us know in the comments below!

    yeah probably but only cuz that chick looked like a whore (am i allowed to say that here?). anyways yeah that’s my take on it… like they say… you can’t turn a hoe into a housewife.

  • april d

    don’t get it misconstrued though, i love drake and i wouldn’t want to see his fine ass perish but alas, a hoe IS a hoe and if she was supposed to be with someone already and double crossed him, what makes you think she wouldn’t drake. anyways i love aubrey drake graham forever!!!!!!!!!!

  • Steffanie Flores

    well, I think that girl is crazzy ;D
    I would never kill Drake not even in my dreamss ;)

  • Drizzy Look-Alike

    they betta make a “to be contined” vid of that.
    jus to see how she kills tha gang lord (mavado) andher and drizzy get away.
    my boi’s a playa!!

  • Tee

    No she do not kills DRAKE.. but “PUFFY”! She and him escapes.. but have to be careful trying to get out because of the goon’s who keeps “PUFFY” house on lock.. We shall see part 2 in an upcoming video..

  • I think she killed the gang lord. she was probably stuck in the sex-trade, and no one wants to get caught up in that (as the old-man warns Drake, but doesn’t really tell him all the details). Drake is the hero… but got caught and now the fate is in her hands.

    There should’ve been multiple gunshots to symbolize she killed the gang lord and his goons. And I agree with the comment above that the next video should be about them getting away :)

  • Gerry

    Nah, think about, she aims at the pistol at his head, its fades out, and 3 shots are heard firing. Who shoots someone in the back of the head 3 times? noone. the more likely scenario is that shit shot the gang lord, and 2 guards.

  • Tito Jackson

    No he didn’t. If you pay attention there are three men in the room and after she raises the gun you hear three gun shots. FIND YOUR LOVE

  • Aidanna

    Wait, didnt she only have one bullet???? i think the reason why there were more than one gunshot is cuz she killed the big man and his goons continuation is a must!!!!!!!!!!!!!
