Today Compton, CA native YG releases one of the more pleasant surprises of the year with My Krazy Life.
YG displays the ability to put together a cohesive narrative akin to fellow Compton native Kendrick Lamar (MKL even features an out-of-narrative Drake featured single as well). Whereas K.Dot’s debut is a narrative of a kid(d) with one foot in and one foot out of Compton’s dangerous gang culture, YG has both feet firmly planted into the lifestyle Kendrick tried his hardest to avoid.
The opening scene has YG getting jumped into his gang, and from there on you get everything: gangsta parties, juggling the main chick and the side chick, hitting a lick, going to jail and getting bailed out. If you get the deluxe version you even get to go full circle by returning back to Bompton.
With features from the aforementioned Drake, Kendrick, Schoolboy Q, Jay Rock, Ty Dolla $ign and more listen to the stream below to check it out before picking up the album on iTunes and in stores.
