YG premieres historical fiction inspired graphics for latest track Stop Snitchin.
Despite teasing Brooklyn rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine by sharing his mugshot while performing the track at Coachella, YG takes a cinematic route for the official visuals. In the video, YG appears to lead an escape from a plantation. He and other enslaved Black people make plans to head north in the night.
Throughout the video viewers see the enslaved people dancing to Stop Snitching in the fields. Racist and violent imagery also is depicted as a white overseer spits at an enslaved young woman. YG also hangs from a noose at the end of the track.
The storyline follows the group of enslaved people as they plan and carry out their revolt. After tying up one of the masters, they escape with one man staying behind. After being caught, the one enslaved person who did not continue running snitched on his fellow people. The master calls him “snitch” and seeks out his escaped property.
As the once escaped slaves are brought back and face punishment alongside “the snitch”, the masters reveal themselves to actually be one of the enslaved men and they leave the snitch hand-tied to a tree.
