YG's Why You Always Hatin? was always going to be a strong contender for song of the summer, but now the music video has arrived, that case just got even stronger. When you get Drake, Kamaiyah, YG and TY Dolla $ign together in LA, what else would you expect?

The clip has got all the usual trappings of a high budget production—Bentlys, Porches, even a helicopter entrance—but there's also some unexpected elements. Namely, Kamaiyah's feature, where the Oakland rapper flips the script on video eye-candy. She's surrounded by oiled up boys massaging her feet. Basically, it's dope.
