Nicki Minaj's 'Donk Steals the Show in Busta Rhymes' 'Twerk It' Video

Out of all the jiggling rears, hers reigns supreme

"The video will have a lot of big booty judy's," Director X promised of Busta Rhymes and Nicki Minaj's video for the "Twerk It" remix. And boy, is that an understatement.

Shot in Brooklyn, the visuals for Busta's dancehall-influenced single alternate between the rappers and a jiggly, slow-motion club scene, with Minaj showing up halfway through to spit a few verses and shake her ample backside. Busta, for his part, tries on patois while dressed up as a designer-label dictator, occasionally morphing into comic supervillain Venom. Pharrell, who produced the track, and DJ Khaled also show up, just to hang out. At least it's less creepy than Miley Cyrus' twerk in "We Can't Stop."

"Twerk It" (or "#Twerkit") will be included on Busta's still-untitled 10th album, his first with Cash Money.
