YG stopped by The Cruz Show on his hometown Power 106 LA to promote his new album and upcoming appearance at the Powerhouse 2016 music festival, and they covered the making of Still Krazy, the Grammys, and his community work.
When asked about the most Difficult part of making his sophomore album, the Bompton rapper said it was a “runaround on every level,” from “the producer side of things,” recording, and putting it together. However, getting the mixing done was particularly difficult because MixedByAli, who also mixed his first album, is in high demand as TDE’s resident engineer.
Since Ali has four Grammys, the radio hosts took the opportunity to ask YG his thoughts about the controversial awards show. When asked about winning a Grammy, YG said wanted one because “it’s like the motherf*cking championship.”
Compton’s Mayor Aja Brown, who YG said is like his sister, called in to recognized the rapper’s work in the community, stating he’s really “serving the people” when he holds events and isn’t there just for the photos.
And when YG was inevitably pushed for a Still Krazy release date, he said it was still being tweaked, but confirmed it was coming in June.
