Will Schube implores you to take 30 minutes and watch YG's short film from 2014.

Will Schube knows summertime means hot dogs and gin & tonics. 

It’s a million degrees outside and my legs are sticking to the couch so we’re going to make this brief. There are thousands of ways to celebrate the release of YG’s astounding Still Brazy. While YG’s short film Blame it on the Streets was released in 2014, it’s as applicable to Brazy as it is My Krazy Life, the album that preceded the short. It’s a behind the scenes look at gang life in Compton, and it manages to both glorify and justify the gang life so integral to YG’s music. That awesome kid from Coach Carter is in it too. Still Brazy is the summertime album for nightime car rides and afternoon barbecues. Blame it on the Streets is the movie behind the music.
