Despite the fact that YG’s newest single from his upcoming album I Got Issues is named “Maniac,” the accompanying video isn’t all that loopy at first look. Then you definately see a man within the again Blood strolling in a “Thriller” jacket and also you understand, “Oh yeah. Somebody will need to have misplaced their thoughts.”
I child, however YG’s new tune and video are fairly typical of the fabric he’s put out from the brand new album to date. The Compton rapper subtly particulars the stressors which were making his life “krazy” since even earlier than he obtained well-known (see what I did there?), and brashly reveals the impact getting wealthy and well-known has had on them. He additionally exhibits off his more and more polished wordplay abilities, a side of his artistry that has been missed and underrated for the previous few years. Ever since he began writing his raps down, he’s had a plethora of intelligent turns of phrases like this one: “I put bands on heads, offer you a scarf, n****.”
The rollout for I Bought Points hasn’t gone fairly as easily as YG needed although. After dropping well-received singles like “Run” and “Toxic,” YG expressed his disappointment in Def Jam after the tracklist for the album — which options shock options like Nas — was released prematurely.
Regardless of that snafu, although, anticipation for the album appears about the place it ought to be and it appears to be like like he’s on observe for one more well-performing challenge when I Bought Points drops on September 30. Pre-save it here.
