UPDATE: YG just liberated another visual for “Pop It, Shake It,” which takes things from the carnival to the mansion….and it’s ultra-NSFW. That clip has been added below.
YG and DJ Mustard have to be somewhere in the history books as far as Hip-Hop’s greatest emcee-producer duos are concerned. Since the release of the now-classic My Krazy Life, both have remained in position as West Coast frontrunners; despite their rollercoaster relationship, it’s great to see that the two friends have remained solid.
Now, YG and Mustard are back with some heat: following the single release a couple of months ago, fans now get to check out the new visual for “Pop It, Shake It” which sees the artists living it up during Carnival festivities in Trinidad and Tobago. The clip comes courtesy of Director X and — among other appearances — features a cameo from exiled rapper Shyne. Of course, there’s plenty of fast-moving eye candy to see as well…if anything, “Pop It, Shake It” certainly seems inspired by New Orleans Bounce (think Juvenile, Lil Wayne and Mannie Fresh‘s “Back That Azz Up”).
Enjoy “Pop It, Shake It” below and pick up the single via iTunes. Hopefully, the long-awaited 400 Summers project (or any new YG album, for that matter) will arrive soon.
