Rappers YG & Nipsey Hussle’s new song “FDT” or “F*ck Donald Trump” has been currently making some waves through social media, so much that the Secret Service has actually contacted YG’s record label. “They asked to see the lyrics on my album to see if I’m talking about Trump on my album, because if I’m talking about him on my album they’re going to try and take it off the shelves” states YG. The government may be trying to censor his music, especially when LAPD recently tried to shut down the video shoot. Check out the clip of YG speaking to TMZ at the airport.
YG and Nipsey Hussle have released a video for their controversial song titled “FDT.” Both rappers took to the streets of Los Angeles with a mob of people to voice their displeasure with Donald Trump and his candidacy for President of the United States. LAPD attempted to shut down the filming of the visual multiple times. Check it out below.
I think we can all relate to this. YG and Nipsey Hussle‘s newest song is titled “Fuck Donald Trump.”
“If you vote for Trump you’re prolly on dope.”

West Coast MC Nipsey Hussle teams up with K. Camp for their new track Between Us produced by THC. This is the third leak Nipsey has put out while he is currently on his Crenshaw Tour. Check out the track below.
Coming in at number nine on our countdown is the standout project to come from the Golden Coast in 2013. Nipsey Hussle’s Crenshaw did just enough work to garner the spot. The project’s buzz came not only from the mixtape which features Dom Kennedy, Rick Ross, 9th Wonder, James Fauntleroy, and Slim Thug -but also from the “Proud 2 Pay” promo campaign behind it. Fans had the option of paying $100 for the mixtape, which they were probably “Proud 2 Pay” for.
Crenshaw’s standout tracks included “Blessings”, “Don’t Take Days Off”, “Change Nothing” and “The Weather” (Feat. Rick Ross & Cuzzy Capone)
Download Crenshaw, and come back tomorrow to see who snagged the number eight spot on our countdown.
After a lackadaisical start and a risky marketing approach, Nipsey Hussle’s Crenshaw mixtape turned out to be his upper-echelon project that fans have been waiting on. The first few tracks offer the big names and catchy hooks that make hit singles -but not the bars to match (See The Weather feat. Rick Ross & Dom Kennedy). Crenshaw would eventually hit its stride and gives us the same feel his Marathon mixtapes did. More or Less, 4 in The Mornin and Don’t Take Days Off is where Nipsey gives us the hustler mentality that has always been displayed in his music along with a mature tone as he passes stories of his recent success in hopes to see his people where he is now. As displayed in Blessings, Nipsey’s desire to see his people prosper and his tireless efforts to see this happen takes precedence as the central theme in this project. It didn’t take many creative risks, nor did it need to. In a year where we saw many artists push the creative envelope to new levels, all it took was an honest dialogue of the path out of the rough Los Angeles streets to put Crenshaw into the conversation with any other mixtape released in 2013. Give this gritty, west coast modern day classic a listen right here.
