Bio

Following the release of his sophomore album Still Brazy early this year, Los Angeles-based rapper has emerged as the preeminent voice in gangster rap. While his debut album My Krazy Life affirmed that the artist that broke out with 2009's "Toot It And Boot It" could translate his hit-making and story-telling skills to crafting a cohesive and critically-acclaimed album, 2016 saw YG emerge is a critical voice in the modern social climate.

Still Brazy boasts the classic West Coast flavor that fans have come to expect from YG, but songs like "FDT (Fuck Donald Trump)", "Police Get Away Wit Murder" and "Blacks & Browns" demonstrate an intuitive understanding of sociopolitical dynamics that few chart- topping artists can claim.
