YG is gearing up to release his debut album My Krazy Life on March 18. The project is very personal to the 23-year-old rapper, who has seen a lot growing up in the streets of Compton, and he shares a story that many can relate to even if they haven't gone through the same experiences.
To coincide with the album's release, YG will also be sharing his 22-minute documentary My Krazy Life, exclusively on Complex TV on March 18, which chronicles his inspiring journey up to this point. Many of his peers are featured in the documentary, including A$AP Rocky, Jeezy, Kendrick Lamar, DJ Mustard, Drake, Meek Mill, Terrace Martin, Don Cannon, and Rich Homie Quan, and they share nothing but respectful words for the Compton rapper. Today, Complex TV premieres the trailer for the documentary, filmed by Mike Miller.
"I think the West Coast is an extremely legendary place," Drake tells Complex. "But at the same time I think there's a new breed of guys, YG included, Kendrick included, guys that are just writing their own chapter." Kendrick Lamar offers similar praise as he talks about YG's commitment to his craft. "To actually come in and see a nigga really dedicated with a body of work and come from a real place and a real lifestyle, 'cause I've seen him out there, that's a whole 'nother feeling," he says. Jeezy, who signed YG to his CTE World label last year, describes My Krazy Life as, "Timeless, not just what's hot today or what's good for tomorrow. 10 years from now, it's still a classic album."
YG's album My Krazy Life will be released March 18 and is available now for pre-order on iTunes. The project includes appearances from Jeezy, Drake, Kendrick Lamar, ScHoolboy Q, and more. YG will be touring in support of his album with DJ Mustard following its release, and his tour dates are listed below.
