While on the road with G-Eazy for the “Endless Summer” Tour, YG stopped by KMEL in the Bay Area to discuss his new album.
During the interview, the Compton rapper addresses the specific song, “Don’t Come To LA”.
“Just a lot of f*ck sh*t,” YG says of the record. “That record just talking about how a lot of people that’s not from L.A., and really ain’t have nothing to do with the culture, they come from outta town and they start representing. They acting like they really a part of the culture. Stop playing bro.”
“I only chose to speak up on it, because there’s a lot of that going on,” he continued. “It’s a lot of people always saying something about it, but they ain’t got the platform or voice to say something and people hear it, and be like, ‘Bout time, somebody said something’. I got y’all. Don’t trip. I’mma press the line.”
When asked about the rumors that he’s was taking shots at Chris Brown on the song, YG clarifies that he wasn’t aiming at anyone specifically. “That’s in general. It ain’t to one person. It’s a lot of people I’m talking to. Period,” he explained. “Nah man, I’m talking that real sh*t.”
Elsewhere, YG calls out so-called “streetwear brands” that take from the culture, but aren’t really from the streets.
“There’s a lot of these brands out here, they called ‘streetwear brands’, but they not from the streets. We from the streets. You feel me?” YG exclaims. “It’s a real streetwear brand. A lot of these brands be taking stuff from the culture, so it’s like, it’s a real dude from the culture. We gone show y’all how we do this. We know how to do this fashion sh*t too. Y’all steal from us all the time. I’m bout to come to the fashion game and take over. You feel me?”
YG currently has a line called 4HUNNID, and is also gearing up for the launch of a line inspired by his hometown called Bompton.
