YG Opens Up About Being Shot, Announces New Album 'Still Krazy'

  /  06.25.2015

Not even bullets can’t hold YG back. Less than two weeks after being shot, the Compton rapper is back on his feet and recording his sophomore album.

In an interview with Billboard, he opened up about the shooting, which occurred after a recording session in Studio City, Calif. Despite reports that he was shot three times, YG says he was only shot once.

“I got shot one time. It was three bullet holes because it went in, went out and went back in again,” he reveals.

But he doesn’t know or care who shot him. “I don’t know, and it don’t matter. I got lucky because a main artery is right there, right around the groin. The bullet didn’t go that deep, and it didn’t hit any bones.”

However, he insists it was not gang-related. “It was not gang-related at all. It just happened out of the blue. We don’t know who did it, we don’t know why. We don’t know nothing.”

He went to the hospital (family and friends reached out including Boosie BadAzz) and was back in the studio the next day. “I’m hard to kill,” he says. “My mama tells me, ‘What are you talking about ‘going to the studio?'” But you know, I got shit to do—this shit don’t stop for nobody. I came straight to the studio on my little crutches.”

He is already walking without crutches and readying his sophomore album Still Krazy, the follow-up to his critically-acclaimed debut My Krazy Life.

With DJ Mustard at the helm, he previewed eight tracks including the G-Funk-inflected “Twist My Fingers,” which samples Malcolm McLaren’s 1982 classic “Buffalo Gals.”

“Thematically, it’s an eclectic mix of good-time party tracks and moodier ones about surviving in the streets, police brutality, and the stupidity of crossing YG,” writes Billboard.
