Watch YG Invite Fans Onstage To Beat Donald Trump Piñata
Tue, 20 Sep 2016 09:33:50
YG has had a good run of it recently, his political anthem "FDT", which stands for "F*** Donald Trump" has become the rapper's biggest song to date, and life is on the upswing. The reach of his hit was extended recently when he invited rap heroes Macklemore and G-Eazy to feature on the remix. The rapper's death-threat laced song has been celebrated by media. The lyrics call for a "party in the street when Hillary wins" and suggest giving President Obama a third term.
The Compton based rapper also named his upcoming tour the FDT Tour, and at the kickoff show last night in San Diego he led into the track with a little foray into vaudevillian stage craft. Before performing his widest reaching track, "FDT" YG hoisted a piñata in the shape of Donald Trump from the rafters, before inviting members of his audience to come and take whacks at the likeness of the Republican presidential candidate. The rapper then threw what was left of the decapitated piñata into the crowd, while he launched into a super-hyped up version of his now-signature song.
Since this was the first night of the tour it's not yet clear if YG will pull the same piñata stunt at the rest of his 51 FDT Tour stops. However, when we learn the new president of the United Stated on November 8th - it's certain that the rapper will make his feelings clear.
YG's FDT tour will make its way through 52 cities this fall, finishing in Tempe, AZ on December 4th at the Marquee Theater.
