- yg_lead<p>YG held the crown for the West when we co-signed him back in 2011 as a <em>XXL Freshman.</em> Three years later, the Compton rapper has dropped a slew of mixtapes to build up the hype for his long-awaited Def Jam debut <em>My Krazy Life.</em> Supported by “My Nigga” featuring Young Jeezy and Rich Homie Quan, “Left, Right” and “Who Do You Love” with Drake, YG has all the ammunition needed to drop a breakout album.</p><p>Earlier today, <em>XXL</em> had the opportunity to sit in an exclusive listening session for the entire project. Jeezy, DJ Mustard and YG’s crew were all in there to explain how <em>My Krazy Life</em> invites listeners into his world. Jeezy, who signed YG to CTE, took the floor to say the LP revolves around a “young nigga in his Chuck Taylor’s.” From beginning to end, <em>My Krazy Life</em> proves how he is empowering the culture with his honest storylines and real portraits of living in poverty.We jotted a few notes during our time with the album. Here's what we gathered from <em>My Krazy Life.</em>—<em>Eric Diep</em></p>
YG’s debut album My Krazy Life finally hit stores today, however the first week sale numbers for the album that is predicted is lower than expected. My Krazy Life is a very solid project but it’s only expected to sell 45-55k, according to HDD. Stream the album for free here and give it a listen for yourself.
