Every step of the way, YG and Nipsey Hussle's "FDT (Fuck Donald Trump)" has been making headlines. First: its message/existence ("I like white folks but I don't like you / All the n---as in the hood wanna fight you"). Second: its video shoot getting shut down by the LAPD. Now: the video's WorldStarHipHop premiere, which leads with an impassioned piece of text and samples news reports about the police activity on set.
Watch the Austin Simkins–directed "FDT (Fuck Donald Trump)" video—black-and-white except for Compton-appropriate flashes of red and blue—above. It opens, music-less, with the following salvo:
"As young people with an interest in the future of America.... We have to exercise our intelligence and choose who leads us into it wisely. 2016 will be a turning point in this country's history.... The question is....in which direction will we go?
The last 8 years represented an upward evolution in Western political principles and the collective vibration of America as a whole...
We saw more inclusive/diplmoatic foreign policy... We saw prison reform actually bring home family members and neighbors of ours... We saw healthcare become a civil service... And we saw morally unjust conflicts with other country's [sic] resolved.
Our opinion is that in the age of a technologically empowered & nuclear armed planet...separation is the enemy.
The next leader of America will be a most pivotal president for these reasons... Register ASAP and choose wisely.
-YG & Nipsey Hussle"
