YG’s looking to next year
Yesterday, in a long and deliberate roll-out, the the 2015 Grammy Award nominations were announced, and there were some notable hits and misses. The rap category–which has always been the subject of debate and the source of controversy–was filled with mainstream stalwarts and rookie faces (Eminem, Common, ScHoolboy Q, Iggy Azalea, Wiz Khalifa), but YG‘s debut, My Krazy Life, which has been heralded as 2014’s best rap LP by hoards of Hip-Hop writers and critics, was glaringly absent. YG and DJ Mustard took to Twitter almost immediately to express their surprise and disappointment, and they didn’t stop there. Shortly after, they released “2015 Flow,” whose album art leaves little about the song’s inspiration up to imagination. DJ Mustard laces YG with a set of keys and synthesizers as the Bompton native flows over a bass-less instrumental.
