Since the release of his My Krazy Life in 2014, YG has experienced the ups and downs that come with success. The Compton rapper graces the cover of FADER’s new issue, where writer Matthew Trammell heads to the City of Angeles, spending time with the 25-year-old rapper. Along with commentary from Def Jam CEO Steve Bartels and Epic Records VP of A&R Sickamore, new details are also revealed about YG’s sophomore effort, Still Krazy.
Despite resolving their previous rift, YG and DJ Mustard have not worked as much. Terrace Martin, London On Da Track, Hit-Boy, and Metro Boomin have contributed to the project, with 50 Cent and Nipsey Hussle being named as guest features to this point.
In the new issue which hits newsstands on December 15, YG also opens up on getting shot back in June, his thoughts on the N.W.A biopic Straight Outta Compton, coming up with DJ Mustard, and more.
