Before he closed out a recent show, Compton rapper YG announced that his third studio album, Stay Dangerous is on the way. During NBA All-Star Weekend, YG and his 4hunnid imprint hosted a two shows in one day event show that featured artists like Nipsey Hussle, SYD, Lil Pump and YG himself. The show, which was the first ever festival hosted by YG, took place at Shrine Expo Hall in Los Angeles. Before YG closed his last performance of the night, he revealed to the fans in attendance that Stay Dangerous was on the way although he did not release a planned date for the album.
YG later posted a photo featuring himself below a Sunset Blvd billboard that has the recently announced album titled printed three times with the text, “A message from YG.” Without an official release date, this seems like the ultimate tease from the My Krazy Life rapper. The Blood gang-affiliated rapper released a new track titled “Suu Whoop” on Friday. He will most likely use this track as the lead single for the upcoming LP.
YG’s sophomore LP, Still Brazy featured the popular track “FDT” or F—k Donald Trump which became an anthem of sorts in protest against the current President who was a candidate at the time the song was released. It was reported that following the Nipsey Hussle assisted, politically charged track’s release, YG was contacted by the Secret Service in an effort to protect Trump from any potential danger.
The biggest single from YG’s second album, Why You Always Hatin is now a certified Platinum single that features Drake and Oakland native Kamaiyah. The Kamaiyah vocalized chorus, as well as her own solo grind launched the Interscope signed rapper to the XXL Freshman List in 2017.
