Video: Nelly f/ Nicki Minaj & Pharrell – ‘Get Like Me’

Nelly, Nicki Minaj, and Pharrell

Nelly keeps it slick and sexy in the black-and-white video for “Get Like Me.” The St. Louis rapper calls on Nicki Minaj and Pharrell for the Colin Tilley-directed clip. Fresh off the video for Busta Rhymes’ “#Twerkit,” Nicki kicks off her heels and pops her booty, while Nelly plays the butt bongos and pops wheelies.

“[Nicki] brings energy, charisma, and her star power, and I think that’s what the video is about,” said Nelly. “It’s just about that star power and energy and the hypeness of the joint.”

Pharrell added, “When we get together, we like to do a song that evokes as much energy as possible.”

Nelly’s seventh album M.O. is due September 30 featuring T.I., Future, 2 Chainz, Nelly Furtado, Trey Songz, and Florida Georgia Line.

    The beat is great, but im not liking the vocals. What happened to Nelly man. Used to be great and now he’s working with numbnuts like Nicki Minaj and Florida Georgia Line

    @Roman, That was wack.

    But @Zack, she’s an artist. She raps. She’s good at what she does. She can produce wordplay, she can tell stories, she can rap, period. So she’s not a “numbnut”, as you would put it.
    She’s a business woman and she’s SUCCESSFUL.
    Stop hating.

    @Onika Miraj, nicki is sorta a less good version of lil wayne, both have the same sort of word play, which goes ridiculous after a while, but wayne is like the grandmaster and nicki like the studeng. And the stuff outside of music makes her a numbnut. The wigs, the dresses etc. Thats not rap, thats pop. Same goes for all her hit songs. All pop, not rap.

    But she can rap, monster and roger that are proof.

    @Zack, The wigs? EVERY FEMALE IN THE GAME WEARS WIGS. And if you’re talking about the colored wigs that haven’t been seen since 2011 unless if she’s selling a product because that’s business and is compatible to the product. (The Fragrances) And what’s wrong with her ability to do both. That’s her lane she did and she won doing it.

    @Onika Miraj, It’s not hate. I’ll give Nic her props. She’s doing her thing as a bussiness woman. As for her raps, she has had more downs than ups lately. That’s real. She came into the game trying to open doors for other female rappers but she won’t even acknowledge all the female rappers out. You’re fan. Be honest.

    @, correction she has successfully opened doors for female rappers. You are foolish if u think her latest features aren’t good. she doesn’t acknowledge other females rappers because they all shade her why would she show love to people who shade her that makes no sense all of them at one point have shaded her from missy to iggy so please I wouldn’t ever give shine to people who shaded me …be real!

    the video,production and song is dope wow its funny how nicki is the only female rapper that artists are using as a feature the female rap game need to step it up i wish there was a female rapper that is talanted like nicki that has her own style and word play beacuse all these other female rappers are good but they dont wow me or get or get me hyped when they have new songs or a mixtapes

    @aa, I agree completely. I like Nicki too, but she needs to be challenged. I want there to be MORE female rap artists that are stiff competition. I have nothing against Iggy, Briana Perry, etc. I’m just not as into their music as I am Nicki’s music.

    @Wow, Oh Iggy Azalea is COMING out for sure she’s getting BIG in the UK, and she’s going to come hard in 2014 once her new album comes out shes already touring with Nas, Rita Ora, and Beyoncé.

    @aa, the thing is nicki has good management to help her get these features and “alot” of these artist “think” that buy putting nicki on their tracks that it is going to help them get a hit. The truth of the matter is that is false.. look at all the features she has done lately go to billboard top 200 and see how many has she really helped out. Its sad and i give props to people like J.Cole , Kendrick Lamar and Fantasia all of which thought outside the box and worked with other female rappers. more should follow suit.

    Queens Reply:

    @rin, I dislike people like u so much who think they know everything nicki guarantees listens and purchases based on her fan base alone she can’t make a song a hit just by featuring the whole song has to be good plus hip hop doesn’t tend to chart on top 10 billboard hot 100 thats facts which is why you have rap categories etc check those and see where she at

    [Reply]

    Oh Reply:

    @rin, Honestly it’s true. Nicki DOES help put people on Billboard HOT 100. Even if a song debuts at #56 or something that’s still good being that it has to compete for airplay with every genre of music and check your facts because EVERY song besides “Tonight I’m Getting Over You” with Carly Rae Jepsen has debut in the Top 50 on Billboard Hot 100 Chart. When was the last time Rihanna’s features went #1?

    @rin, you are a hater simple as that,people like you are always talk sh-t like you know sh-t,if these people was running down billboard top 10,why is it they keep working with nicki them if that was the case ask your self that because i know that people an’t stupid,she most be really doing something if they keep featuring her.

    channel_ROMAN Reply:

    @rin, Her features may not be top 20 or top 10′s (since earlier this year. see Beauty and a Beat & Girl On Fire (Inferno version)) but I’ll tell you this people do here it and people are LOVING her new sound and that’s what’s most important. And these songs have less commercial appeal but they’re doing there thing. And it’s also up to the artist to promote their songs. Mario have yet to perform his single. Why is he being so lazy always talking about “It’s about the music” boy this is not 2002 you have to get out there and show off your music. Getting me tight.

    i wish nicki can be like drake on go on certian songs when the song is necsessary for her verse to be in it well this only happens when theres only one mainstream female rapper i wish there were more talanted female rappers that are diffrent like nicki that would bring simething new to the game the way drake,kendrick,wale,j cole have given us real music to listen to. no shade to the othet female rapper

    [Reply]

    Chloé Magnolia Reply:

    I have to say that the male rappers really challenge each other. See how so many rappers started to step their game up when Kendrick came out with that “good kid, m.A.A.d city”? It was on. I don’t see female rappers doing that and I don’t see listeners demanding it. Once female rappers start to really come with sick rhymes and not just sex-appeal and a potty mouth, it’ll inspire others to do so as well and it will make the target audience more critical.

    You haters are the reason why NICKI MINAJ IS FEMALE RAP. Y’all talk so much shit about how she a flop and how she this and that but she is DOING WAYYYYY MORE in 5 years than YOUR fave female rapper has done in their 20+ year career. Nicki is GOOD. She’s in features because EVERYBODY know she is killing shit left and right. She not on this most read list for nothing. So thanks for listening to the sons and watching the videos just to comment and hate. This bitch is Everything and MORE and you mfs can suck a dick if you think she WILL EVER LET GO OF THIS CROWN SHE’S BEEN HOLDING DOWN. That Minaj Reign WILL NOT LET UP! And as far as her saving herself? My bitch has an affordable clothing line with DOPE shit coming this fall as well as her 2nd frangrance ( the first one went #1 in the US and UK) her beats pill and headphones is out will be starring in her FIRST motion picture film! So y’all jobs not done, we gone need some more hate cause 2014, IT’S OVER!

    Why do ppl keep saying she failed? She did some pop songs, sold over 7 million with JUST ONE of them. A RAPPER won awards over already established pop artists. Her album held the highest sales for a rapper that year.

    Now that she’s showed the world her versatility, signed her NUMEROUS deals, she’s back to what she started off doing.

    Nicki is lyrical.. I don’t know what y’all not understanding by now. They would throw other female rappers on tracks if these b.itches had bars or made a big enough name for themselves. She steps on tracks like one of the guys.

    This is why she doesn’t really shout out other female rappers, cause there ain’t none!

    Not that I’m first to say it but why do several posters on this site now have variations of my screen name? I am THE SHADED TRUTH and after me there shall be none. You’ll be able to identify my post by the way I write. So jockers please pay homage. Just kidding, I see you though.

    Anyways, I like the beat and the creativity of the video. None of the lyrics did anything for me or any of them. I think when you’re a great profound artist, like fans of Nicki claim she is, you don’t have to jump on a million songs. Jay-Z doesn’t, not Nas, Beyonce, and so on. I’m not saying shes not talented but I do think shes overrated at times and she’s over-saturating the market. I like when an artist draws back sometimes and removes themselves from music in order to slow brew new ideas. Its a good thing to be a bit mysterious sometimes. Nelly is sexy as ever, small piece and all, and Pharrell is music genius; he doesn’t have to do much to remind us of his greatness. He has that Andre’ 3000 thing going. He can drop one song a year and produce a couple beats and hes set for the next 365 days. Must be nice.

    I just can’t understand something.:

    In every post that Nelly is ”involved” there are some guys who ALWAYS hate whatever this dude does!!

    You guys say:
    * Nelly has lost his attitude with Hey Pors che(P youo yovp – Not Rap)
    * Now he made a hip-hop song,and you are complaining because he works with Nicki Minaj.

    *** What you guys don’t understand is that the music industry workr in that way.
    Nell y was always a Pop-Hip Hop artist. Now the m.sic industry wants to make all you people hear to pop music.
    Nelly is a professional artist who wants to earn.

    THINK ABOUT THIS :
    2001 – RAP- COUNTRY GRAMMAR
    2002-2003 HIP.HOP- NELLYVILE
    2004 -POP.RAP – SUIT & SWEAT
    2008 -POP – BRASS KNUCKLESS(HIP-HOP …Disaster album)
    2012-2013 Electro-Pop -5.0 And now M.O

    SO JUST LISTEN AND DONT CRITICIZE ARTISTS.
    THEY ARE PROFESSIONAL. YOU CANT DO NOTHING EXCEPT FROM AVOIDING LISTEN TO TENSES… LISTEN WHAT IT REALLY MAKES YOU HAPPY ;)
