Los Angeles’ own YG recently unleashed his highly-anticipated album 4Real 4Real, with standout features from G-Eazy, RJ, Tyga, Mitch, Jon Z, Ty Dolla $ign, Valee and Boogie. Serving as his fourth studio album, the Bompton rapper holds nothing back, combining both real street shit and bangers to turn up for the function. Recently, YG stopped by Power 106 for an exclusive interview to chat about his favorite record off the new album, the support of the Latin culture, and the reuniting of hoods after Nipsey Hussle’s passing.
Speaking on the album titled, YG states:
“The music is real. It’s authentic. That’s what YG’s all about. The brand 4 Hunnid stands for “forever one hunnid,” a hundred times fold. Everything YG does is with a 4, 4real 4real. My whole thing is just being consistent. Staying consistent. The last album came out in 2018. I’m like “I gotta come out before the summer. Try to do another project before the summer’s over.'”
Speaking on the passing of his good friend Nipsey Hussle, YG states, “When the homie passed, you seen a lot of people from different hoods and areas that don’t really get around. Where Nip is from, you see a lot of them showing love and speaking on Nipsey’s death — having feelings for it. It’s crazy seeing that. Certain people like ‘damn, this n*gga saying something? He showing love? That’s crazy.’ But Nipsey was way more than the gang shit. He was a real person who cared about the people. People we all know he didn’t have to care about.”
In addition, YG explains why the intro track, “Hard Bottoms & White Socks” is his favorite and what inspired his Latin-influenced track “Go Loko.” Watch above!
