Last night, fans patiently awaiting YG's new album "Still Brazy" got a pleasant surprise when the album became available to stream exclusively on Apple Music, three days prior to its proper release. The album had yet to spring a leak, and thus this was a smart decision to avoid that possibility entirely, one which we're seeing a lot of artists take lately.
Today we're excited to unveil our next digital cover story subject: YG. Although it's been two years since his acclaimed debut, he hasn't just been bicken back being bool. He's been going through it all (beefing with his BFF, getting shot, becoming a parent, need I say more), while honing in on a more refined and mature sound (which you will hear on "Still Brazy"). Suffice to say, he's got a lot to say, whether it's on the album or in our cover story.
With the digital cover imminent, take a look at the behind-the-scenes from our L.A. photo shoot with the rapper above, which was shot by Emilio Sanchez. Video shot by Terrence Jones.
