YG is Back with Sign Language: Rapper YG has returned with a new single called “Sign Language,” released through Def Jam Recordings. The song is a banger — a tale of everyday life for the artist as he rhymes about his allegiances, his progress, his beliefs and anything else that comes up.
Similarly, the video sees him driving through the neighborhood, a parade of bouncing cars and twerking butts. Cars, girls and money seem to be the order of the day, and the song ends with the simple line, “West Coast.”
It’s an aggressively authentic and simultaneously joyful tune. Check out out below.

“I like trying to help people and get people where they’re going,” YG says. “I feel like the energy and the culture – we’ve got that – but we haven’t had any crazy success yet. That’s the goal. We’re working towards that every day…
“One of my close friends discovered D3 on Instagram,” YG says. “He was posting videos and all of this. He took a liking to him, and sent it to me. I started listening to him and following him. We had a conversation like, ‘Yeah bro, we’ve got to sign him.’ We took the next step to do that.”
