“When my sh*t start movin’ like, my record deal was f*cked up for ten years straight,” said the rapper. “I just got out of that sh*t some months ago. So like, hell yeah, my sh*t was all bad. I never owned none of my music I put out from f*ckin’ my last album back. I ain’t own nothin’ so I just got out of that. But like, the fact that I was in some f*cked up deal, you know what I’m saying, that made me start thinking about other sh*t.”
“I’m like, ‘I ain’t making no money with none of my music, I gotta do other sh*t.’ So, it turned me into whatever you want to call me, business n*gga that got a brand.” Adam22 wanted to know if YG ever felt defeated or found it difficult to be self-motivated to create new music while under his deal.
“It was hard. I was f*cked up. But I did a lot of stealing and robbin’ and sh*t when I was young so, I look at it like, that was my karma,” said YG. ‘Them motherf*ckin’ White people in offices stole from me and it was my karma ’cause I used to rob sh*t like, a lot… ‘YG, know how it feel to get stole from, n*gga. Don’t do no more stealing.’ Alright, thank you, God, I got you.”
