In the video, YG runs from the LAPD on foot and on the road. Police cruisers chase after his car on the outskirts of town and eventually surround him, but he doesn’t go down without a clear statement. YG puts both middle fingers in the air even while officers have their weapons pulled on him.

Elsewhere in “One Time Comin,'” a police officer’s body camera provides a first person perspective for viewers. The officer chases YG through the streets and backstreets, and viewers see everything from that point of view. “One Time Comin'” ends on a harrowing note. When the officer screams for YG to get on the ground, the camera cuts to black and several shots can be heard.

The video continues YG’s political streak, which started with his “F— Donald Trump (FDT)” collaboration with Nipsey Hussle. But he’s not the first rapper to comment on police brutality by way of their music video this week. Vic Mensa shared his new visual for “16 Shots” on Monday (Oct. 24), which found him standing up to police brutality and honoring Laquan McDonald, who was shot 16 times by police two years ago.
