Who would have thought Ludacris and Nicki Minaj would be responsible for reinstating the visibility of female rappers? Sure, Nicki we predicted—the triumphant ubiquity of her presence has underscored the dearth of ladies in our faces, and her friendship and collabos with Trina have upped the ante on places like 106 & Park and... the internet. But Ludacris, with his new female-centric album, is also giving women a one-up in the rap news cycle. This video was filmed at the same shoot as the first, Nicki-only "My Chick Bad" video, but it doesn't matter that it looks nearly identical because CHICAS ARE RUNNING THIS. It's also great to see Eve back and inspiring a Rick Ross cameo.
