DOWNLOAD ALBUM YG – 4real 4real Zip / MP3
Ahead of the release of his new album next month, YG has announced the title.
During an interview with Billboard, the Compton rapper revealed that his fourth full-length album, 4REAL 4REAL, will arrive May 3.
He had planned a surprise release ahead of his Coachella set on April 12, just eight months after dropping his album Stay Dangerous. “From my first album to my second album, and from my second album to my third album, it took me two years to put out each project,” he said. “That wasn’t my choice. Life was changing: I got shot, I had a daughter. It was crazy–it took a little longer.”
But on March 31, his close friend and collaborator Nipsey Hussle was gunned down outside his Marathon Clothing store. In light of Nipsey’s passing, he decided to delay the project. “I was dropping a Surprise album April 12th,” tweeted YG. “But man Now that we gotta deal with Big bro goin to heaven I will not drop the album this month.”
Inside this recording studio in Burbank, Calif., an extra-wide TV screen sits above the mixing board. The left half is playing reruns of Malcolm in the Middle; the right half is divided into four equal quadrants, each showing a live security feed of one of the studio’s entrances. YG — who has been recording here ever since he was shot three times in the summer of 2015 while recording at a complex in nearby Studio City — has been holed up for the past several weeks, putting the finishing touches on his fourth full-length album for Def Jam, 4REAL 4REAL, which comes out May 3.
