02 OCTOBER 2020 (TORONTO, ON) - Everything is about to turn red…Today, multi-platinum Bompton-based rapper YG releases My Life 4Hunnid, his anxiously awaited fifth full-length studio album on Def Jam Recordings/Universal Music Canada, the country's leading music company.

To celebrate the record’s arrival, he just unleashed the music video for the new single “Blood Walk” featuring Lil Wayne and D3—the latest signee to YG’s 4Hunnid Label. The throwback clip intercuts grainy nineties-style footage of police choppers and looming tension as Wayne rips bars on a half-pipe, D3 carries the g-funk West Coast hook, and YG leads the party as red rags wave everywhere. It’s an old school South Central rap video for a new era.

Buzz for the 13-song opus reached a boiling point prior to its impact. The rapper recently graced the cover of the Los Angeles Times Calendar section, and the in-depth profile noted, “In his music, YG speaks to the immediate, hour-to-hour rage and vulnerability of Black life as protests churn and police kill and terrorize with seeming impunity. It’s fitting that “My Life 4Hunnid” is his darkest and most wounded album for Def Jam yet.”
Last month, he unveiled the latest single “Out On Bail.” Drawing critical acclaim, HYPEBEAST described it as “a track heavily influenced by the career of 2Pac,” and Complex assured, “YG keeps the heat coming.”
My Life 4Hunnid also boasts the 2020 bangers "SWAG," and “FTP,” and "Laugh Now, Kry Later!" To date, songs from the album have tallied a total of 30 million streams and 30 million views. Check out the full tracklisting below.

Since emerging in 2009, YG has projected the voice of the streets into the mainstream and ultimately left a mark as a rapper, actor, entrepreneur, designer, and philanthropist. The Compton native has gathered nearly 10 billion streams, a dozen platinum and gold certifications, and various honors. He’s the rare maverick who can stand arm-in-arm with protestors one day, appear on-screen next to an Academy® Award winner the next day, and preside over a fashion runway on another day. He has landed four consecutive Top 10 debuts on the Billboard Top 200. Among numerous anthems with social implications, Billboard christened the politically charged “FDT” [feat. Nipsey Hussle] one of the “Songs That Defined the Decade.” In 2020, he fought back again with the anti-racist screed “FTP” and its music video of which Variety claimed, “If there’s a music video that captures the Black Lives Matter demonstrations of June 2020, it’s YG’s ‘FTP’.” He accompanied the reunited Public Enemy and an all-star cast of collaborators for a show-stopping performance of “Fight The Power” at the BET Awards in 2020.
Simultaneously, YG remains a pillar of the community. He donated $100,000 worth of food from his restaurant Fishbone Seafood in honor of Juneteenth. Additionally, he founded the nonprofit 4Hundred Waze. Among various initiatives, the nonprofit provided $10,000 in PPE to Los Angeles families hit hardest by the COVID-19 pandemic residing in Emergency Crisis Housing. Plus, he built a platform for buzzing artists such as Day Sulan with his 4HUNNID label in partnership with Epic Records. The 4HUNNID brand also comprises a clothing line of the same name co-owned by YG and creative director Gavin Mathieu. Infiltrating high fashion and occupying space in retailers such as Barneys, Zumiez, and more, the line amplifies his impact. Not to mention, the accomplished actor graced the big screen in White Boy Rick with Academy® Award winner Matthew McConaughey. YG merchandise available at 4hunnid.com.
