YG Expresses Exciting For New Album
During an interview with Power 106, 4Hunnid’s president expressed his excitement about the album (which was originally titled Pray For Me ).
He said, “It’s just the growth of me. Like, my headspace and what I’m on in life. I think the whole COVID pandemic shit, I hated it but I also look at it like, this shit kinda helped me get to where I’m at with my self, mentally.”
YG continued: “My personal growth is going to show with everything I do … The music is just going to be my truth as far as my life right now. It’s gonna be dope.”
In its first week, the album earned 64,000 album equivalent units, earning YG his third top five release.
The 32-year-old followed up on the project collaborating with fellow West Coast rapper Mozzy on Kommunity Service in May 2021. They also recreated Hype Williams’ 1998 movie Belly on that album cover, which was inspired by ’90s hip hop.
