It seems that Drake's new music video has angered the Jamaican tourism officials who object to the video's violent image of the Caribbean island.

The video for "FInd Your Love", which features Drake's first attmept at singing all the way through a track, was directed by Anthony Mandler. The video features Drake's beard, stripper-turned-video vixen Maliah Michel, and a drug lord named "Puffy" who directs Maliah to shoot Drake's character n the head.

“Care has to be taken by all, including our creative artists, in portraying images of our destination and people,” a Jamaican tourism official says. “Gun culture, while not unique to Jamaica, is not enhancing (the island’s image).”

That's funny, because my family members in Jamaica say the situation is dire over there. They say there have been 500 murders so far this year.

    Sandra, can you please ease up off the Drake posts. I'm tired of this down syndrome azz nicca. He ain't THAT good of a rapper.

  • TSRBenz

    Sandra, how much Drake paying you?

  • pinksghetti

    Not sure, but I think Drake's dad is Jamaican too. There are tons of videos and movies where Americans (and other countries) are violent but I understand what some may not like it.

  • Krysi J

    Please let Drake be great!

  • ohpretty1

    They hated the movie Shottas also. That's why it has taken so long for the sequel. There are more pressing issues than entertainment. How about the police-assisted murders and beatings of gays and lesbians on the island?

    irregardless (which i'm not sure is a word but you get my point), AT LEAST jamaica is finally taking a stand.

    I don't like this song and not drakes biggest fan he says some clever things here n there but that's abt it

  • biglegs36

    I love this song! I am feeling Drake,he is on some different shyt!

  • pointhimout

    so based on published statistics, one could get shot in the head by a king pin in Jamaica. we'd rather he keep it quiet because of his celebrity status? right.

    sandra, you think he should be careful? i hear they allegedly beat up and kill gay people in jamaica. allegedly gay, maybe allegedly.

  • http://charactercorner.blogspot.com attorneymom

    @Sandra, I am beginning to believe that you have a crush on Drake.

    Sandra

    How is that "funny"? Can you name your source for these 500 murders? Don't open your mouth or in this case type BULL SH!T you don't know a damn thing about.

    And yes the situation is dire in Jamaica..THAT'S WHY WE ARE STRIVING TO STOP THE GLORIFICATION OF GUN CULTURE...People always want to highlight the negative about my little country...well guess what? the same BS happens here all the time...

    :offtopic:

    ...Well kinda...Go out and purchase Jr. Gong/Nas Distant Relatives...The album is an overdose of positive lyrics...Youtube the track Patience...EPIC

  • http://facebook.com/renz.renegadesince1985 renegadesince1985

    Police kill people here for no reason as well.....

    1. Little Aliyah 7 yrs old....Jah bless her soul
    2. BART murder
    3. Sean Bell

    And the list goes on...ain't only in Jamaica....

  • SugarPieHoneybunn

    Jamaica need to stop crying. They know folks be getting shot the hell up around there. #dontactembarrassednow

    I love Drake. He's looking better with every post. His mama should have shaped his head when he was born. Keep up the good work Ms. Rose.

  • Zephyr1979

    I've had a few opportunities to visit Jamaica but never did. That movie Topshottas was definitely good!! Would've liked to have seen a sequel.

    LMAO @ Sugarpiehoneybunn!! His mother should've shaped his head lol!

  • starr

    I left Jamaica wen i was five.....they need to get real there. The situation there makes it scary for me to want to go back down there, esp kingston.

  • free

    last time i was there, i spent a week in kingston. cool peeps and e'rthing. like similar environments all across the USA, there is more good in jamaica than bad.

  • WalkingKontradiction

    I gives a darn what anyone says about Jamaica or any other place where the population is predominantly black, I won't rest until I visit each place & experience the beauty for myself! Same reason half of us would never venture to any country on the continent of Africa, always listening to what others say, hell I grew up in one of the highest crime cities in Cali, lol nevermind, bad example! Hello all!

    Oh yeah Sandra my log in doesn't work on the reg site, sup wit dat? :lol:

  • SugarPieHoneybunn

    Of course Jamaica isnt the only place with crime. Duh. Crime is everywhere. The point is, why are they crying about it when they know that type of stuff happens?? I wont be shedding any tears if Rapper XYZ makes a video showing violence in USA cuz I know dat sh*t is not a lie!!!!!!!

    Yeeeeeah Boyyyyyyy!!!
