YG Is Dropping a New Mixtape Soon
YG plans to release a new mixtape. The Compton rapper went on Twitter this afternoon (Oct. 25) and announced an untitled mixtape.
"Fuck it. Mixtape koming soon," he wrote.
The mixtape announcement comes after YG dropped a new track earlier in the day. The "Twist My Fingaz" MC released a single called "One Time Comin." The song continued YG's turn toward sociopolitical content as he addressed police brutality.
YG's evolution began with his single "FDT," a song released in response to the campaign rhetoric of Donald Trump. Earlier this year, YG told TMZ he hoped the song would motivate others to vote in the upcoming election.
"We trying to touch the people. We trying to motivate, get all the young people to vote," YG said. "Go really take your time out and vote on who should be in office cause it’s important. If not, it could be all bad for us.”
The Still Brazy cut brought YG a little unwanted attention though. The Cali rhymer claimed the Secret Service has been monitoring him since "FDT" was released.
"Secret Service hollering at the label," he said. "They asked to see the lyrics on my album to see if I’m talking about him on my album cause if I’m talking about him on my album, they gonna try to take it off the shelf.”
Luckily for fans, that did not happen. YG got to release Still Brazy with "FDT" untouched.
