YG and His Crew Take Over Tokyo in ‘Word Is Bond’ Video
Bompton gets lost in translation
YG was in town to perform at the Public Labo Block Party last spring when he shot the video. What follows is a romp that includes low riders, a bit of dancing, and set repping. There’s also subtitles that translate YG’s verses in plainspoken English. For example: “Had to put the black gates where I live at / Shooters on deck try to pull up you gon’ get jacked” means “I have to protect my home with gates and friends with guns.” Watch the 2Tone-directed clip below.
