YG Plays A Runaway Slave In His New Music Video 'Stop Snitching'
The slavery-themed video comes two weeks after YG debuted the song at Coachella.
YG dropped the visuals for the first single off of his upcoming album, 4Real 4Real.
The video for "Stop Snitchin" depicts YG as the member of a slave family trying to run away from a plantation only to be sold out by another slave and killed.
YG debuted the song two weeks ago at Coachella. Many suspect that the California native is using the song to take shots at rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine. The two rappers have had issues since 2018. During an interview with The Breakfast Club, the feud escalated when Tekashi 6ix9ine referred to YG as "the dude that was hot mad long ago." In response, YG released a threatening video on Instagram. Since then, both sides have sent threatening messages back and forth.

However, the beef has cooled down in recent months. Tekashi 6ix9ine's career has been put on hold as he faces federal racketeering and firearms charges. The New York Times reported that 6ix9ine recently agreed to a plea deal to reduce his sentence. As a result, YG had Tekashi 6ix9ine's mugshot projected on to the screen when he debuted the song at Coachella this month.
YG pushed back the April 12 release date for his surprise album after the death of Nipsey Hussle. It will be his first since his hit album Stay Dangerous came out last year.Now, check these stories out:
