The music of YG centers on the daily struggles an average teenager encounters. He attributes his popularity
to his ability for being able to wordsmith lyrics that resonate strongly with people. "My music is about my everyday life.
That's why I know so many people like it and will like it - they can relate. It's what they and their friends are going through
every day - shopping, looking for girls, getting in and out of trouble," YG said.
The young and talented YG has managed
to cultivate an unparalleled fan base minus radio or commercial support. He has also traded in gang life for music and hasn't
looked back. In a short time, YG has racked up awesome social media metrics: a couple of tunes with more than one million
plays each and more than 1.5 million profile views.
