YG boosts the West and cooks his own recipe for gangster on 'My Krazy Life'

My Krazy Life by YG


YG is by no stretch of the imagination the most original gangster ever, but from the beginning of the My Krazy Life LP with its raw beats and rhymes all the way to the end, it's obvious that he intends to keep things up-close and personal. He makes apparent from the go that he has love for the West, and it's plain to see in the album's funky, warped production and unadulterated gangster lyrics. YG employs all the standard tropes of gangster rap: drugs, women, money, violence, and more. This is the main trend all throughout, except for "My Nigga" and "Sorry Momma," two songs where YG digs a little deeper and provides irresistible detail. Solid for the most part, My Krazy Life is pretty traditional stuff, even with its big invites and high energy level.
