The official video for YG’s track featuring Drake 'Why You Always Hating?' dropped with a bang. The video also benefits from appearances from Oakland rapper Kamaiyah and a plethora of fancy cars.
Fresh from announcing a multi-million-dollar joint venture between his independent record label 4Hunnid Records and Interscope, YG is making some impressive moves and this positive energy can definitely be felt in his new video. After the rapper was shot in a recording studio last year, he has seemed to put his street life behind him and is solely focused on music.
The bouncy single will hopefully open the commercial doors for the West Coast rapper with a solid guest verse from the current talisman of Hip Hop, Drake. The two rappers's styles complement each other perfectly on the track and it's sure to be a club banger this year.
The single from YG's second studio album, Still Brazy, also features Oakland rapper Kamaiyah on the hook, has a cameo appearance from California artist Ty Dolla Sign – it is most certainly a West Coast affair. Have a watch of the action and dash; packed video below which features an array of luxurious cars, Drake’s infamous dance moves and YG standing on the landing skid of a helicopter while it’s still in motion – now that's pretty gangster!
YG, born Keenon Jackson, is an American rapper from Compton, California. He released his first single 'Toot it and Boot it' in 2009. The track featured Ty Dolla $ign, and peaked at number 67 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts. As a result, he signed quickly to Def Jam Recordings and released multiples mixtapes (including 'The Real 4Fingaz' and 'Just Re'd Up 2') soon afterwards. In 2013 he signed a deal to join Young Jeezy's CTE world and collaborated with the likes of Jeezy and Rich Homie Quan - eventually peaking at number 19 on the Billboard Hot 100. Finally, in March 2014 he released his debut album 'My Krazy Life' to much critical acclaim. In June 2016 he released his second album, Still Brazy - and 'Why You Always Hating?' was one of the most popular tracks on the entire album.
