Just weeks ago, YG released one of the hottest albums of the summer, Stay Dangerous. Following the project, he dropped a 20-minute documentary which covers the meaning of the album’s title and much more.
Stay Dangerous, the documentary, explores the different meanings of the phrase and its origin – Inglewood, CA. The video starts out with YG saying, “When I say ‘Stay Dangerous,’ It’s a state of mind. It’s across the board with everything I got going on in life… The street. The gang culture. The homies.” Artists Jhene Aiko and A$AP Rocky also make cameos commenting on the terminology.
The Bompton rapper also covers how the street culture and his life experiences has influenced his decisions with fashion, music, and lifestyle all together. It even dives into his and DJ Mustard’s long-time music relationship and how they create their iconic sound, which heavily influenced the West coast sound.
“It’s about opening this word up and giving it to the world… I’m giving them a piece of me. I’m giving them a piece of the culture. I’m giving them a piece of LA.”
