Pop It, Shake It: 17 Risqué Music Videos That Caused Controversy

YG’s uncut video for “Pop It, Shake It” premiered on WorldStarHipHop, and it’s been fodder for conversation since its release. Set against the effervescent backdrop of South Beach, the party is billed as “Hunnid Best Day Ever” and features a multitude of scantily-clad mamis defying gravity with their coveted derrieres—and then some. The scenery immediately brings up the flashpoint of controversy that was Nelly’s 2000 “Tip Drill” clip, which concerns many of the same themes, including the exploitation of women’s bodies, misogyny in hip-hop, and the overall politics of patriarchy in the world of music and entertainment.

And while we can scurry down the rabbit hole discussing why YG is being met with an overall sense of acceptance in comparison to the St. Louis rapper (let’s chalk it up to the times and the incessant demand for all things uncensored), videos like “Pop It, Shake It” remind us why sex will always and forever sell. Yet, Nelly and YG are hardly the only recording artists who’ve produced X-rated material deemed NSFW or too risqué for daytime television. Here are 17 other videos that more than ruffled feathers. Some are pretty old school. Others are more contemporary. All of them will have yo’ mama clutching her pearls.
