Rapper YG’s sophomore album has been teased just enough to send fans into a frenzy every time he even alludes to its release. Earlier this month, YG released the album’s title and full tracklist, with a debut set for June 17. But as a special treat to the fans (and what looks like a great exclusive deal with Apple Music), the new album, titled Still Brazy, is now available to stream for a select audience.
The album’s first bursts of buzz came with the announcement of its guests and collaborators. Drake, Lil Wayne — who is currently recovering after suffering two seizures yesterday afternoon — Kamaiyah, and Nipsey Hussle.
Many already released singles are on the album, including a tea-smashing anthem for the current American presidential election titled “FDT (Fuck Donald Trump)”. Another fan-favorite, “Why You Always Hatin?” features both Drake and Kamiyah, but a slew of new songs like “Who Shot Me?” look at heavy social issues. The album kicks off with a fantastic warning — “Don’t Come to L.A.” — after a small introduction, titled, “Pops Hot Intro”.
While some fans may have seen this as a great exclusive, those who pre-ordered the album were not too pleased with the decision.
But, for those who could stream the album, reviews were pretty positive, with many hailing it as a way to ring in the summer season.
The album comes ahead of YG’s Endless Summer Tour, which will include performers and headlines like G-Eazy, Logic and Yo Gotti. The tour kicks off in Dallas on June 26th and will stop in Houston, New York, Sacramento, and a number of other major cities.
The album is due for release in stores and on other streaming services starting this Friday.
