Jeezy, Rick Ross, DJ Mustard & YG “BET Hip-Hop Awards 2014” Vlog
Jeezy Feat. Rick Ross, DJ Mustard & YG
When it comes to Atlanta, Jeezy's probably one of your best choices as far as a tour guide goes. After years of plowing the streets and dusting the city's residents with some fresh powder, the Snowman undoubtedly knows the A's best nightclubs. A few years ago at the BET Awards, Jeezy and Rick Ross had a backstage scuffle, but they seem to have patched things up, because Jeezy invited Rozay to go out with him, DJ Mustard and YG. The "My Nigga" team's adventures on that night are catalogued in a new vlog from Revolt TV, which is now available to watch above.

YG is ready to cap off the summer with his pool party music video for "Do It To Ya" featuring TeeFlii off his debut album My Krazy Life. The jazzy record featuring live instrumentation from Terrace Martin was shot in YG's native West Coast and features some familiar faces, including Machine Gun Kelly. Karen Civil was on hand for the video shoot, and brings us a look behind-the-scenes today. Watch above as they play a game of basketball and ladies in bikinis enjoy the pool. Stay tuned for the official music video to arrive soon.
Berner Feat. Young Thug, YG & Vital "All In A Day" Video
Berner Feat. Young Thug, YG & Vital
For his June track "All Day," Taylor Gang's Berner rounded up quite the motley crew. There's Young Thug, the lone non-Californian on this track, YG, who comes up from L.A. to revel in a bit of Bay Area madness, and Vital, Berner's Bay compadre. Now retitled "All In A Day," the track has gotten an official video -- watch it above.
Destructo Feat. YG "Party Up" Video
Destructo Feat. YG
YG hops on the party bus for the new visuals to Destructo's "Party Up." Conceptually, the Motion Family directed clip follows a man whose poor fortune turns around when he boards a mysterious bus filled with half-naked women. The beauty of the video is its simplicity. This is a different sound from what we typically hear from YG. A straight EDM club banger, the song features less rapping than it does instrumental. Destructo (obviously) handles the synth-driven boardwork.
YOWDA Feat. YG "That's How It Go" Video
YOWDA Feat. YG
Yowda is no stranger to big collaborations. For his last feature, "Ballin'" the emcee travelled down south to link up with the boss of all bosses Rick Ross. Now, he's traveling to Bompton, CA, for a hot new single featuring the west coast's newest superstar YG. "That's How It Go" finds both emcees traveling their respective neighborhoods, rhyming on porches and in front of liquor stores.
Joe Moses Feat. YG "Burn Rubber" Video
Joe Moses Feat. YG
Both Joe Moses and YG have seen increased success in the 14 months that have passed since DJ Mustard dropped his Ketchup mixtape, but today, the L.A. duo return to that release for the "Burn Rubber" video Featuring a cameo from Akon, this video has Moses, Mustard and YG inviting the whole block out for the shoot, with shots of fast cars and packed concerts spliced in for variety.
YG "Bicken Back Being Bool" Video
One of the most fun tracks off YG's debut album My Krazy Life, "Bicken Back Being Bool" (and definitely the most fun title to say aloud), receives a visual treatment today. It's just a regular day on the block for YG and his "bomies", as a neighbor walks along the streets and preaches, drinks are being drank, weed is being smoked, games are being played, graffiti is being done; but soon things go south, as fights break out (including a drive-by) and the police are on the look out, all the while YG narrates a day in the life.
YG Responds To YouTube Comments
YG took part in Noisey's often hilarious "The People Vs." segment, where artists respond and react to YouTube comments left on their videos. YG reads comments left on his "Left, Right" music video. It seems a lot of the comments left were of a sexual nature, with the conversation going from people enjoying his visuals a little toooo much, to groupies taking off their clothes for him. Check out the West Coast spitter's reaction to various comments above.
K Camp Feat. Too Short, YG, Lil Boosie "Cut Her Off (Remix)" Video
K Camp Feat. Too Short, YG & Boosie Badazz
While we've heard some of rap's biggest names offer up freestyles to K Camp’s smash hit “Cut Her Off”, there's a pretty strong argument that the official track may just be the strongest of the bunch. Now receiving some pretty basic visuals (women, cars, chains, etc.), the single continues to blaze up the charts, bringing Camp's fanbase into the mainstream.
Kurupt Feat. YG, Dr. Zodiak & Mic Quin "MoonRock" Video
Kurupt Feat. YG, Dr Zodiak & Mic Quin
Lots of rappers these days have their own signature strains of weed, but of course Kurupt, the Cali O.G. that he is, had to one-up everybody with his new "MoonRock" product. As seen on his Instagram, MoonRocks are marijuana buds drenched in hash oil and then coated with some potent kief (all of which is also detailed at the start of this video).

While out in the UK for the Wireless Festival, YG decided to stop by Tim Westwood’s show on Capital Xtra and give the audience a little treat. The Young Gangsta proceeded to jump in the booth and spit a crazy freestyle over Drake’s infectious "0 To 100" instrumental where he gets at producers for copying DJ Mustard’s sound like in Iggy Azalea’s "Fancy" beat. Check out this dope 2-minute freestyle above. Thoughts? Quotable Bars:
BTS Of YG's "Bicken Back Being Bool"
One of the stand-out cuts from YG's debut album My Krazy Life is undoubtedly "Bicken Back Being Bool." While the lingo catches on, YG is shooting an official music video for the cut out in Bompton (where else?). Karen Civil was on hand to capture some behind-the-scenes footage from the video shoot, while the video is being directed by Alex Nazari. YG said of the video's concept, "The concept of the video is like a day in the life being on the block. I’m chilling. I’m bicken back being bool and there’s all this shit going on."

Sevyn Streeter Feat. YG "nEXt (Remix)" Video
Sevyn Streeter Feat. YG
Sevyn Streeter's Call Me Crazy EP is one of the most underrated projects of the last little while, but it's been getting a little more attention on account of some added guest appearances. "nEXt" has already benefited from a Kid Ink feature, but last week it was released yet again-- this time with a new verse from YG. Like the Ink version, the new remix now has an official video. The Bompton emcee of course comes through for the visual, adding a couple of verses on either end of the song.
