Cops can’t keep YG and Nipsey Hussle down. After police shut down their video shoot earlier this month, the West Coast rappers deliver the video for their anti-Donald Trump anthem “FDT (F— Donald Trump).”
“As young people with an interest in the future of America…. We have to exercise our intelligence and choose who leads us into it wisely. 2016 will be a turning point in this country’s history…. The question is….in which direction will we go?,” a message from the MCs in the intro reads.
Billboard recently spoke to YG and Hussle about their explicit political stance. “It got to a point where [Trump] was disrespectin’, saying shit that makes no sense,” said YG. “Me and Nip always talk about doing real shit about these politics, stepping up and saying stuff other motherf—ers are not doing so we finally hit the studio and really did it.”
Nip added, “It was honestly a combo of me and YG. We were just talking about using our voices and YG had a concept for a song called “F— Donald Trump.” ‘Let’s do a F— Donald Trump record,’ he said. Immediately, I said, ‘Let’s do it.’”
