THE ALBUM PLAYS OUT IN ‘DAY IN THE LIFE’ FORM, WITH SKITS TO HELP THE STORY LINE

The first track, “The Put On Intro” is only 15 seconds, and for good reason. The entire track is YG‘s mother screaming out to him, warning him that he “better not be outside with them gangbangers”, in her most daring, motherly voice. This theme is repeated all throughout the album, after many of the songs, including right before “Meet The Flockers”, you can hear members of YG’s crew or family re-enacting scenes from his krazy life. While to some it may be a blatant attempt to copy the success of the skits from fellow Compton rapper’s albums–Kendrick Lamar‘s debut and Game‘s most recent album, Jesus Piece, both were acknowledged for the effectiveness of their skits–YG’s aren’t just randomly tossed around. They mean something not only to each track they’re accompanied with, but also to the overall schematic of the album.
