YG is a young American rapper who has released two studio albums in his short career along with several mixtapes.
As of 2019, YG’s net worth is around $3 million.
Keenon Daequan Ray Jackson, now known more commonly as YG was born in Compton and raised by a single mother as his father was involved in illegal activities which often led to jail time.
YG grew up in Compton and joined a gang called Bloods. Unfortunately, this decision proved to be wrong for him as he got into several illegal activities like his father, all of which ultimately landed him in jail as well.
The gang Bloods are strong rivals of another gang located in Compton called the Crips. Interestingly, all of those who are in Bloods, don’t use the word ‘C’, something which is evident in the names of his songs and his albums.
As of 2019, YG’s net worth is approximately $3 million and his music is the main contributor.
The first song which he released in collaboration with Ty Dolla Sign was Toot it and Boot it, after which he received acclaim for his work.
He slowly started making a name for himself in the music world and through his efforts, managed to get signed by Def Jam Recordings, CTE World which is Jeezy’s record label.
The first studio album which YG released is titled My Krazy Life, with him using the name to show his affiliation with the Bloods gang as he doesn’t use the letter ‘C’ to spell crazy.
His first album became quite successful and features songs such as My Nigga and Left, Right. DJ Mustard has worked on both these songs.
Another single on this album was titled Who Do You Love? The reason why this is mentioned separately is because this song features the famous rapper Drake, showing how YG had already become well-known even though his debut album hadn’t even been released.
His album, My Krazy Life is an interesting listen as it outlines his life in Compton. His mother didn’t want him to live the same life that his father did but was still unable to stop him from making the wrong decisions at a young age.
YG has released his second and third albums as well titled Still Brazy and Stay Dangerous respectively.
His second album features collaborations with several rappers such as 50 Cent and Drake. Furthermore, he has even collaborated with the famous Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj, proving that he is becoming quite popular.
