YG has gained some traction with Def Jam, following his recent affiliation with Young Jeezy's CTE, and finally, gets a release date for his long awaited debut album.
Originally titled I'm 4rm Bompton, the Compton rapper has switched up the title, now called My Krazy Life, and has set a November 19 release date. In an interview with MTV's RapFix Live, he explained that Jeezy actually suggested the change.
"Jeezy holla'd at me, told me, 'I could come with something that the world would accept, everybody would like.' I was in my YG... my red, ya feel me? That's what I was on, but he brought something to my attention. I was like, 'Ya, you right.' So... the album is called My Krazy Life," YG explained. "I'm taking people somewhere they never been, so they gonna feel it."
"The album title actually goes better with his album, because his album is like a day in the life of a YG... a young gangsta, somebody out here tryna get it how they live," Jeezy added. "I think it represents Compton, L.A., the West Coast, anywhere you're from... Compton's all over the world."
While features and further details were scarce at press time, Young Jeezy has been tapped to executive produce the project, while YG says longtime producer DJ Mustard will handle the bulk of the album... and Drake will also show up on a track called "What Do You Love?"
So there you have it, My Krazy Life is due out November 19th. Stay tuned...
