Police shut down a music video shoot for YG and Nipsey Hussle’s Donald Trump protest song over the weekend.
The Californian rappers were filming the video for their latest song ‘FDT (Fuck Donald Trump)’ in West Hollywood on Sunday (April 3). Roughly a hundred people had shown up for the shoot, after YG invited fans to join him on set in a post on Instagram, before police intervened.
Officers arrived in riot gear and were armed with tasers, pistols and shotguns, according to reports from people in attendance. The LAPD later told TMZ that they were not aware that the crowd was part of a music video shoot.
First they pulled out tasers, then pistols, then SHOTGUNS. Not sure any of that was necessary, but my nigga @nipseyhussle executed like a professional. Hands up. We was all in a peaceful FUCK DONALD TRUMP mood. No rioting, no fighting, we were together. I guess expressing political views with togetherness requires police to pull out shotguns.
In one of the Instagram clips from the shoot, a bystander appears to be hit and knocked to the floor by spinning car doing a donut. He is then seen walking away with no visible injures.
Sources confirmed to TMZ that YG and Nipsey managed to get enough footage before the police arrived to be able to release the video.
The pair are not the first hip hop artists to be angered by Donald Trump. Earlier today (April 5), House Of Pain frontman Everlast told Trump to stop using one of the hip-hop group’s classic tracks at his rallies, labelling the celebrity businessman-turned-Republican hopeful as a “piece of shit” and a “scumbag”.
