You’ve never quite seen the star like this. YG came off with this one. We get to see the proud California artist happy, dancing and hanging out with friends. More along the lines of a beat that DaBaby would walk all over, YG gets in his bag. Watch the awesome video for the bop below, which shows imagery inspired by Colin Kaepernick and a reference about not catching the ‘rona because he’s wearing designer masks. Cameos come from A$AP Nast, Snoop Dogg, Tyga, and more. Check out the ARRAD direction for the DJ Swish and Benjamin Lasnier production below.
