Multi-Platinum rap star YG, who continues to challenge the powers-that-be at every opportunity, releases his brand new single “Pop It, Shake It” today! This is the first official release from his upcoming third album, the eagerly anticipated JUST RE’D UP 3: KNOW YOUR WORTH, executive produced by DJ Mustard. With the intent to have fans nationwide dancing all summer long, the song sets the tone for the release of YG’s forthcoming album.
The much-anticipated project follows YG’s critically acclaimed Still Brazy (June 2016) and the fan-centric mixtape Red Friday (released on Black Friday, November 25th). An instant West coast G-funk classic, Still Brazy contained “Why You Always Hatin’?” featuring Drake and Kamaiyah as well as the original version of “FDT” (F*ck Donald Trump), which was called “the first great protest song of this insurgent election season” by the New York Times and has amassed over 31 million streams (audio + visual combined).
JUST RE’D UP 3: KNOW YOUR WORTH acts as the extension of his dual mixtape releases, JUST RE’D UP (2011) and JUST RE’D UP 2 (2013) – both projects hosted by DJ ill Will & DJ Mustard that offered unapologetic, West coast fueled raw street lyricism. Both boasted a combination of features from Wiz Khalifa, Jeezy, Tyga, Nipsey Hussle, Big Sean, Ty Dolla $ign and more.
