Weeks out from the presidential election, YG is taking another shot at the commander in chief.
Today, the Compton rapper shared an over-the-top video for the new single “Jealous,” off his freshly-released album, My Life 4Hunnid. The clip features a man dressed as Trump (unclear whether it’s YG himself,) having a field day in the oval office with a group of strippers and no shortage of cash raining down. The marks another just the latest jab at the president from the rapper, who made his sentiments towards Trump crystalline in “FDT (Fuck Donald Trump),” a 2016 collaboration with the late Nipsey Hussle.
The video for “Jealous,” follows a politically-charged clip for “FTP,” which drew some criticism for using a Black Lives Matter protest as a backdrop. On Instagram, YG responded to those who thought the video was distasteful and exploitative. “For anyone out there talking, I don’t question your advocacy and don’t think you should question mine. See you gotta understand that a lot of people out there see me as a n*gga. They don’t see the black proud man. They see a kid form Bompton and they expect violence,” the rapper wrote in a lengthy post. He added, “We showed up and did it right…the real story here is me and Black Lives Matter brought out 50,000 people today to protest and unite for change.” The “FTP” video featured scenes from that protest as well as graphic stills from demonstrations across the country.
