Watch YG Heat Up Carnival in ‘Pop It, Shake It’ Video

Compton rapper heads to Trinidad and Tobago in new clip for DJ Mustard-produced track

Compton rapper YG heads to Trinidad and Tobago to celebrate Carnival in the new video for his DJ Mustard-produced track, “Pop It, Shake It.”

The clip finds the MC spitting his stripper anthem onstage, in the streets, at a festival ground and in the middle of the Trinidad Carnival parade. Regardless of his locale, YG remains surrounded by plenty of women twerking and dancing in their extraordinary masquerade costumes.

YG released “Pop It, Shake It” in March, notably reuniting with DJ Mustard. The pair worked closely on YG’s early projects, but had a falling out before YG began working on his 2016 LP, Still Brazy. Last summer, however, the pair announced that they were working on a new mixtape titled, 400 Summers. A release date has yet to be announced.

YG released Still Brazy last June, scoring a viral hit with his track “FDT” (or “Fuck Donald Trump”). In November, he released a new mixtape, Red Friday.
