4REAL 4REAL isn’t perfect, but it’s getting there. YG’s growth may be one of the most authentic that’s been observable in the rap space in recent years.

YG as a rapper is just so boring and lacking any of the energy and charisma that so many West Coast rappers proudly flaunt in their music.

Oh gosh this is very cringe-inducing. I reckon this is what all rap sounds like to people that hate it. The hooks make me tense and I want them to end.
