YG just pulled into the running of best magazine cover of the year with his new FADER story, showing off his elaborate new head tattoo on the front page. The interview with the Bompton rapper finds him sharing thoughts on the night he was shot in Los Angeles.

"That was some inside type, somebody-was-really-coming-to-get-me type shit,” he said. “It was like niggas knew where we was at, and they was coming to do what they was supposed to do... It’s a gang of motherfuckers out here on some ‘Fuck YG’ shit,

He continued to comment on the threat he feels in L.A. "I feel like this: Los Angeles County is sick right now. It's bad," he said. "Everybody mad out here right now. All the young motherfuckers, they getting money, they motivated. We had something to do with the because we came up. It brought opportunity for motherfuckers and shed more light on the West Coast. The music shit start popping again out here. We got strip clubs now, you feel me? It’s a lot of motherfuckers doing music now. It’s a lot of females becoming models and shit now. We got something to do with that. But at the same time, it's a lot of motherfuckers that's mad because they see what I'm doing, and they want my spot so bad."
