YG is slowly becoming this generation’s Too Short. Whether he’s spitting foul-mouthed bars on songs from another rapper or his own hits, just about every notable verse the LA MC knocked out is about beating it up. Think we’re giving him too much credit? Check out the NSFW video to “Pop It.” The lyrics aren’t overdone or trying to push the limits, but they fit the simplistic DJ Mustard beat to a tee. His content is strictly one-sided, but furthers his reputation and caters to a specific, scantly-clad audience. Plus, he’s raunchy as hell and has no qualms about his XXX-rating.
But, if the Young Gangsta really wants to uphold the legacy of Todd Shaw, he’ll need to stay as consistent as he has been over the last six months for about…um…twenty more years.
