After releasing the Anti-Trump banger "Fuck Donald Trump" (or "FDT" for short), YG and Nipsey Hussle called for an impromptu video shoot in Los Angeles on Sunday, April 3. According to TMZ, about 100 people showed up at the set to chant along with the Bompton rapper's new track. TMZ reported that police showed up in riot gear to disperse the crowd, unaware that a music video shoot was taking place. In footage from Instagram posts, officers can be seen pointing guns at participants in an attempt to control the crowd.

This is what this shit is built off of-talking about the culture and what’s going on and putting it out there to make a difference."
