Despite it being the holiday season — a season for cuffing and spending time with loved ones — YG shows no signs of slowing down with this rap ish. After dropping “I Wanna a Benz” featuring Nipsey Hussle and 50 Cent, the Bompton banger is back with a pair of new tracks. Keeping with the heavy West Coast sound established on “Twist My Fingaz” and “I Wanna Benz,” YG drops off “City Mad” and “Goapele Freestyle” featuring Mozzy and Slim400. And by the looks of things YG, whose apparently “off [his] BS,” will be making a huge splash come 2016 with the release of his sophomore album, Still Krazy. After the jump!
Still Krazy, YG’s highly-anticipated follow-up to his 2013 breakthrough album My Krazy Life, is on the way. And tonight YG debuted its second offering in “I Wanna Benz,” featuring 50 Cent and fellow West Coast spitter Nipsey Hussle. The track was premiered by Oliver El-Khatib on OVO Sound Radio, and is produced by Atlanta’s London on da Track. Listen after the jump.
YG is looking to followup his successful debut My Krazy Life with a bangin’ sophomore effort. His forthcoming album Still Krazy will be out later this year but YG isn’t wasting no time by sharing new tunes from the project. Here he’s sharing “Twist My Fingaz,” a track produced by Terrace Martin, frequent Kendrick Lamar collaborator. Check it out after the jump.
A$AP Ferg and YG have returned to their respective coasts following their Beast Coast Connection Tour. And today Ferg is sharing their collaborative track “This Side” from Ferg’s Ferg Forever mixtape. The video, fittingly, features footage from the tour. And damn, it looked like a wild time! Check out “This Side” after the jump.
The upcoming motion picture film, Furious 7, is out April 3rd and the first single off of the soundtrack is a collaboration between Kid Ink, Wale, Tyga, YG and Rich Homie Quan. The track is conveniently entitled “Ride Out” and can be heard after the jump.
The wait is finally over. After weeks of sharing individual bricks (verses) from 36 total rappers, Noisey is now sharing the full version of their epic 42-minute The Rap Monument project. The entire project is produced by everyone’s super producer Hudson Mohawke and features Pusha T, Bryant Dope, Go Dreamer, RetcH, Nipsey Hussle, Problem, Danny Brown, Mayhem Lauren, Raekwon, Vado, Kilo Kish, Flatbush Zombies, Renegade El Rey, Rockie Fresh, Pill, Bodega BAMZ, Remy Banks, Killer Mike, Del Harris, YG, CyHi The Prynce, Young Thug, A$ton Matthews, Prodigy, SL Jones, Nigel Nasty, Bobby Creekwater, Action Bronson, Heems, Mike G, Yak Ballz, Zebra Katz, Two-9, Alexander Spit, ScottyATL, and Da$H. Grab some popcorn, a drink or two, and peep the 42-minute epic after the jump!
Looks like YG got the memo his debut album My Krazy Life isn’t receiving a Grammy nod. In fact, a lot of heavily favored hip-hop albums were snubbed from the 2015 Grammys. Instead of rewarding artistically inclined albums like Freddie Gibbs & Madlib’s Piñata or even Rick Ross’ commercially successful Hood Billionaire, the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences (NARAS) saw Iggy Azalea’s The New Classic better fit for some (more) recognition. Well, Compton’s YG, being the gangsta that he is, ain’t just gonna sit around and take it on the chin, as he unleashes “2015 Flow,” which targets said award show. Peep YG’s Grammy diss track “2015 Flow” after the jump.
The slew of free releases keeps on coming this Black Friday! First you were treated with Wu-Tang Clan’s A Better Tomorrow, the collective’s first album in over seven years, then B.o.B dropped a freebie on you with New Black, and now as promised A$AP Ferg is lending you some brand new heat with his DJ Drama hosted Ferg Forever mixtape. The mixtape features a whopping 19 brand new cuts (including “Perfume,” “Doe-Active,” and “Talk It”) with a star-studded guest list (M.I.A., SZA, Twista, Big Sean, Wynter Gordon, and YG.) Peep Fergenstein’s Ferg Forever tape after the jump!
With both A$AP Ferg and YG heading out on the BestCoast Connection Tour in a couple days the two have decided to share their collaborative new track called “This Side”. Listen to the track after the jump.
It’s been nearly a decade since Fergie dropped her solo effort in The Dutchess, which was the Black Eyes Peas songstress’ multi-platinum debut. Now she has returned with “L.A. Love”, a DJ Mustard produced joint. And seeing as how Mustard is on the beat (hoe!) it’s only fitting that YG would go ahead and jump on a remix. Listen after the jump.
