YG has solidified himself as a pillar not only in West Coast rap but has built a brand close to Cali but felt and understood worldwide.
Coming through the Power 106 studios to chop it up with Power Mornings co-hosts Letty, Teddy Mora, and Javen, the Compton native talks new music, his growth in the industry, going up for the Rams and coming for Tom Brady on social media, and sheds some light on the late Nipsey Hussle.
“Scared Money” is the new collab that is breaking the internet right now as the track sees YG link up with Moneybag Yo and J. Cole. While many would believe that the trio is a surprise match-up, YG speaks on the love and support Cole once showed him early on in his career, when many didn’t believe in bringing the “street” rapper on tour with the North Carolina emcee.
The rapper first set off the West Coast with the massive anthem “Toot It & Boot It” and YG takes a moment to look back at the past decade of his career and how he believes he represents the city. Although YG does admit the single somewhat cornered his image and sound, he shares that his growth as an artist has helped him appreciate the success of the record.
YG goes on to talk about his fandom for the Rams and how he connected with NFL legend Tom Brady, the similarities found in his debut album and Kendrick Lamar’s ‘good kid, m.A.A.d city,’ drops his album title, and much more.
