YG’ s debut effort is proof that the West Coast sound is immortal. Produced almost entirely by DJ Mustard, My Krazy Life is as much an ode to G-funk as it is a farewell letter.
Laced with classic singles (“My N***a,” "Who Do You Love?"), YG took the zeal of regionalism and elevated it with his unique voice and punchy songwriting.
Street rap and commercial tropes were more than subverted, they were given body (“Sorry Momma”).
My Krazy Life turns every tree into a palm tree and every city into Los Angeles. He’s more than a genre-specialist, he might as well be a cinematographer.
