YG dropped the first single for he and DJ Mustard's upcoming Just Re'd Up 3: Know Your Worth tape back in March. The single veered away from signature West Coast sounds and adopted New Orleans bounce, with vocals that seemed to be from former New No Limit artist Choppa's 2002 single, "Choppa Style." Today, YG delivered the track's video and it couldn't be more fitting. The Compton rapper grabbed some Caribbean flavor by shooting the video in Trinidad during soca megastar Machel Montano's Machel Monday festival in February, which happened during the island's annual carnival. The video is expectedly vibrant, showing off masqueraders on the road and Montano bringing YG out as a special guest at the festival. Watch "Pop It, Shake It" above.
