YG's Coachella set featured a Trump impersonator, 6ix9ine diss and Nipsey Hussle tribute
The rapper also confirmed the release date for his next album.
YG took advantage of his slot at Coachella, utilizing his time on stage to make a couple notable statements, as well as debut new music.
During his self-declared “Boachella” festival set on Sunday (April 14), the Compton native doubled down on his opinion regarding currently incarcerated rapper, 6ix9ine.
YG, who has spoken out against the Brooklyn rapper on numerous occasions, paired introducing his new song, “Stop Snitching,” with a giant display of 6ix9ine’s mugshot appearing on the screens behind him.
“You got fear in your heart, so you cooperate / I guess that’s how b–h n–s operate,” YG spits on the track. “You’s a b–h, yo mom like you’re a b–h / Your girl know you b–h, I don’t know how she suck your d–k / Pause, you gon’ cause some s–t with your best friend and your clique.”
In addition to condemning 6ix9ine’s decision to cooperate with federal authorities and vocalizing his disdain for the rapper in his new song, YG also honored the late Nipsey Hussle throughout his set, including opening up his performance with a video tribute.
The Still Dangerous rapper dedicated his entire set to Nipsey, praising him as the “Black Jesus” and inviting those in attendance to join him in a moment of silence. While reflecting on the toll that losing Nip has had on him, YG also explained why he made the decision to push his upcoming album back to May 3.
“So, I had an album coming out April 12,” he told the crowd. “It was supposed to come out on Friday but I got some f–ked up news that my n–a had passed on me and s–t. I didn’t know how to muthf–kin’ walk or talk, I couldn’t get out the bed. I was in the bed every day until 4 p.m. My life is f–ked up, my s–t still f–ked up. The only reason I am up here is because I been drinking a whole lot of tequila. But my n–a gone. I got to deal with the s–t. So, I decided to push my album back to May 3.”
Elsewhere during his set, YG was joined by surprise guests 2 Chainz, Big Sean, Tyga and DJ Mustards, as well as performed tracks such as “FDT,” “Get Low,” “You Broke” and “Toot It and Boot It.” For his infamous anthem against Donald Trump, he even brought out an impersonator of the current president.
