Should i incorporate hang power snatch in my shoulder workout?

Though hang power snatch is a plyometric exercise, does it effectively train shoulders and trapezius for mass growth and development and worth incorporating it in a shoulder workout? Is hang power clean is more effective for this purpose or both are useless for this goal?
