Why You Always Hatin?
YG Feat. Drake & Kamaiyah
YG's announcement that he would be premiering a single on OVO Sound Radio sparked speculation that Drake appear on the song, as he did on "Who Do You Love" from YG's debut My Krazy Life. This speculation proved to be accurate; Drake indeed spits a verse on "Why You Always Hatin?", premiered by Oliver El-Khatib Saturday evening.
AD Feat. YG
While we count down the days until YG premieres a new single off his sophomore album My Krazy Life, we get a new verse from him today by way of AD's banging leak "Thug."
Nipsey Hussle & YG
This one is gonna be an anthem heading into election season. YG and Nipsey Hussle were recently in the studio together, and it’s very possible they put this track together during those sessions. “FDT” stands for “Fuck Donald Trump,” and the song doesn’t stray far from that theme.
Slim 400 Feat. Webbie & Peryon J Kee
Slim 400 has recently earned himself a good bit of recognition by guesting on two consecutive YG tracks, "Goapele Freestyle" and "City Mad" -- both fire. Today, we've got Slim's new single, "Candy Red," which finds the Bompton rapper going across the country to link up with two southern OGs, Webbie and Peryon J Kee.
YG Feat. Mozzy & Slim 400
P-Lo doesn't get a ton of shine outside of California but he's one of the most reliable beatmakers west of the Mississippi. Slappers for days. The HBK vet continues to sharpen his Cali sound with "City Mad," a YG song that features Bompton's Slim 400 and Sacramento emcee Mozzy, fresh off the release of his excellent mixtape Yellow Tape Activities. On the production side, P-Lo weds classic G-funk sounds with modern Mustard/Bay bounce -- in other words, this beat is right up YG's alley.
YG & Slim 400
Over the weekend, YG linked up with big guns Nipsey Hussle, 50 Cent, & London on da Track for "I Wanna Benz," the second single off his forthcoming album Still Krazy. Today, he connects with a lesser-known artist, his fellow 4Hunnid spitter Slim400, for a loose release called "Goapele Freestyle."
I Wanna Benz
YG Feat. Nipsey Hussle & 50 Cent
At the end of a fairly quiet year for YG, the Bompton rapper has come through tonight with a huge collab off his upcoming sophomore album Still Krazy. The new track, "I Wanna Benz," features Nipsey Hussle and 50 Cent and is produced by London on da Track. What a lineup. The track was premiered by Oliver El-Khatib on episode 12 of OVO Sound Radio.
Lyrica Anderson Feat. YG & The Game
Lyrica Anderson has found mild success as a solo artist, but perhaps she's more well known for what she does for other artists, as a songwriter. She's been in the industry since she was a young'n, but somehow she hasn't left a lasting impression when it comes to her own career as a singer. She's looking to change that with her upcoming EP, Hello, due out at the end of the week.
Nov. 13 Freestyle
Sundays are for football and, as of late, Jeezy. As part of his weekly Sunday Sermons, Pastor Young has been dropping off singles from his upcoming album, Church in These Streets. This week, he's given fans a "Nov. 13 Freestyle," named for his album's release date. The track might not land on the album, but it's well-worth a listen for Jeezy fans, bringing to mind the rapping heard on 2006's The Inspiration.
If you're a day one YG fan, you'll remember Tanea from his Just Re'd Up mixtape. YG is now making sure she gets her time to shine, putting her on as a 4Hunnid artist. Today, she's released "Trippin," her debut single from her upcoming Female Intuition EP.
That Shit Go (Up-Down)
JR Castro Feat. YG & Sevyn Streeter
Last week we premiered the video for JR Castro's single "Get Home" feat. Kid Ink & Quavo. Castro keeps the momentum going with "That Shit Go (Up-Down)," featuring YG and Sevyn Streeter and produced by the venerable Polow Da Don. Here's what the Las Vegas native had to say about it: “This is a song about a battle for bedroom supremacy and it definitely looks like I lose out to Sevyn on this one."
YG, Blanco & DB The General Feat. Fiend & AV
If you remember, West Coast artists YG, Blanco, & DB Tha General were once working on a joint EP together titled California Livin, which saw its first single, "Block Party," drop in June of last summer.
Big Tymin' (Remix)
Ty Dolla $ign, Nef The Pharaoh & YG
Nef The Pharaoh has arrived. The Bay Area newcomer already had a big underground hit on his hands with the old school Cash Money-referencing "Big Tymin'," but now it's gonna blow up. Why? Ty Dolla $ign and YG have teamed up with him for a remix.
Twist My Fingaz
Tuesdays used to be the day you could guarantee some VERY HOTTTTT records and a full songs list, but with the industry moving the release date worldwide to Fridays, Thursdays are becoming the new Tuesdays...It seems.
YG Feat. Krayzie Bone
After teasing his new single, "Twist My Fingaz," YG has released a brand new record with Bone Thugz N Harmony legend, Krayzie Bone. The Brave Brothers-produced track builds on the rapper's established new school G-Funk sound, featuring a dirty bassline, set a little slower than your average West Coast radio record.
A.E Feat. YG & Mila J
Oakland newcomer, A.E., is making his HNHH debut tonight and he’s doing so in grand fashion. Calling on fellow West Coast artists YG & Mila J (who know goes by Mila), A.E. decides to drop off his lead single “Killafornia”, which of course, is an ode to the West Coast. Over the spacey Bedrock-production, listen as A.E. and YG put on for their respective cities and crews, while Mila handles the hook. Serving as a new anthem for Cali residents, “Killafornia” will see life on A.E.’s upcoming album Hot Water.
Jeezy Feat. YG
To kick off Memorial Day weekend, Jeezy decided to surprise fans and release a brand new Gangsta Grillz-mixtape titled Gangsta Party. Hosted by DJ Drama, the 10-track project features guest appearances from Rich Homie Quan, YG, 2 Chainz, Kevin Gates, Shy Glizzy, Bankroll Fresh, and more.
Gunplay Feat. YG
As we learned on his early tapes like 601 & Snort, Florida's Gunplay is capable of spitting over anything, from gritty RZA tracks to bombastic MMG singles. Today, he faces a new challenge: the West Coast style of ratchet music. Assisting him on his new single "WuzHaninDoe" are the dream team of YG and DJ Mustard, who do little to stifle their usual sound.
Ty Dolla $ign Feat. YG, Joe Moses & TeeCee4800
Ty Dolla $ign definitely holds his crew down. If that wasn't apparent by the fact that he named his debut album after a homie who's currently locked up, TC, then it's definitely obvious on his latest single, which features friends that rap: YG, Joe Moses and TeeCee. Plus another homie, Mustard, is on the boards. Basically Ty was like, hey guys, let's record a single (or so I imagine).
Peter Jackson Feat. YG & Mazze
Peter Jackson is a Toronto artist who's making big waves in the 6 and beyond. In his young career, he's already rapped alongside Sheek Louch, Freddie Gibbs, and Riff Raff, and on March 31, we'll get his debut album Since I Was 16. On "Hold Up", the latest track off Since I Was 16, Peter Jackson enlists YG, who we haven't heard enough of this year, and Mazze.
