Almost a month after his sophomore album Still Brazy hit shelves, YG has dropped the project’s first music video, for the G-funk-flavored title track.
The vid opens with the Compton MC spray-painting “THIS SHIT BRAZY!” on a stark white wall. From there, he and his crew dance around in matching 4Hunnid crewnecks while he demands to know why everyone wants a piece of his pie. Shifting camera angles, a blood-red color scheme, and flames that appear beneath YG’s feet give the whole clip a hella trippy feel that’s impossible to peel your eyes away from.
As several YouTube commenters pointed out, the clip is remarkably similar to Tupac’s 1996 “Hit ’Em Up” video. Whether or not the “Still Brazy” clip is a direct homage to Pac is unclear, but it wouldn’t be too surprising, given that YG’s a fellow Compton-bred rapper.
Fresh off the release of Still Brazy, YG is currently on the road with Logic, G-Eazy, and Yo-Gotti for their joint Endless Summer tour.
