YG filmed a recent interaction with police to let his fans know what happened to him if things went all the way left. The rapper attempted to show the patrol car behind him and explained that he was being pulled over on the f-chance that the police reacted to him violently.
“I’m gonna tell y’all right now,” he said while angling the phone out the window, “if I come up shot up you already know what’s going on.”
The “FDT” rapper has previously taken on the topic police brutality in his music and videos. His music video for “One Time Comin” showed a disparity between rich people’s interactions with police and the average person on the street. The video cut back and forth between YG leading police on a high-speed chase and body cam footage a man running through backyards in Los Angeles. Things end poorly and ambiguously for the man on foot while YG taunts the police from the ro his luxury car.
Beyond that video, YG famously donated a dollar every ticket sale to the victims police brutality. Basically, YG is initmately familiar with the way that these interactions can go, and he didn’t want anyone else shaping the story.
