YG Debuts ‘My N—-’ Video with Young Jeezy, Rich Homie Quan, Gunfire Almost Halted Production

On Atlanta’s west side in July, the Motion Family crew set their cameras on Los Angeles MC YG to film the visual for his new street single, ‘My N—-.’ The final product arrives this week, and there’s some exclusive stories to learn about what happened behind the scenes.

The 23-year-old rapper, newly signed to Young Jeezy’s CTE imprint, made his rounds in the city that afternoon with a crew of young cats including Rich Homie Quan, who is featured on the track alongside Jeezy. “YG is like a brother,” Quan tells TheDrop.fm. “Even though we just met a few weeks ago, I could tell he’s a good dude. When Jeezy linked us together it was like murder she wrote.”

It’s fitting that YG’s first major song with CTE is one celebrating loyalty and honor amongst homies. Producer DJ Mustard, his longtime friend, said the concept was birthed organically and the features just added panache to an already hot track. “It’s never technical,” Mustard explains. “It just always happens naturally. We already had the song in our head. I already had the beat when Quan came to the studio, so all he had to do was the hook and his verse in the booth and it just came out good.”

So it was on this gloomy A-Town afternoon that the CTE roster and Rich Homie Quan met up to bring the track to life. The crew coasted around the city in a candy red lowrider and did doughnuts in a sleek black Porsche as onlookers gathered in clusters in front of Club Blow.

Things were going pretty smoothly for Motion Family, despite the rain, until there was an unexpected interruption. “Luckily the rain held out for most of the day until our final master shot,” says David KA of the Family. “We managed to get some good footage. The main thing that altered the video was when somebody fired some gunshots by the set. So yeah, that scared some people away and slowed things down for a little bit.”

The ‘My N—-’ video debuted on Wednesday afternoon (Sept. 4) and it’s another clean cut Motion Family production. The video features YG proving his loyalty to his homies after catching a case, maintaining his silence and eventually being sprung from the bing by none other than Rich Homie Quan. Then it’s back to riding around in convertibles and bouncing to that Compton vibe.
