The video is still coming.
A video shoot for YG and Nipsey Hussle’s recent protest anthem ‘FDT (Fuck Donald Trump)’ was shut down Sunday afternoon in West Hollywood by police.
The shoot came together with little prior notice after YG posted an Instagram video asking fans to appear at Melrose and Fairfax at 1:30 PM sharp. Roughly 100 people showed up and after loud chants of “Fuck Donald Trump”, police appeared in riot gear to shut down the shoot. According to reports from people in attendance, officers appeared armed with tasers, pistols and shotguns.
Police later told TMZ that they did not realize the crowd was part of a music video shoot. Fortunately, reps from the rappers confirm they got enough footage to make the video. A few clips from the shoot have appeared on Instagram, including one showing a man being hit by a spinning car doing a donut. He gets up immediately with no visible injuries.

#FDT VIDEO ALERT , pull up
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.
