When YG first burst onto the scene in 2009, I don’t think anyone was looking for him to become a critical darling and outspoken activist. There’s nothing political about “Toot It And Boot It.” But fast forward seven years and YG is the force behind the most straightforward protest song of the ’10s and a charity that’s donating a portion of every ticket he sells to the families of police brutality victims.
The Still Brazy rapper is donating the funds from his ticket sales via his established non-profit, 4 Hundred Waze.
