With just a week until his album drops, YG has revealed the cover art for Stay Dangerous.
The artwork finds the Compton rapper standing in front of a red Chinese dragon backdrop while wearing a patent leather vest and chains around his neck.
“I made this album off tequila, real life stories, morals, and bad bitches,” reads a message on the back cover.
YG started recording the album in 2016 following Still Brazy. “I thought I had different albums at times,” he told WAV. “I went through three different, four different concepts and I really wasn’t feeling them. … I went to Atlanta, we started working again. That’s when I came with the Stay Dangerous concept. I was so many records in, something just hit me. I realized I had something.”
Stay Dangerous has already spawned the DJ Mustard-produced single “Big Bank” featuring Nicki Minaj, Big Sean, and 2 Chainz. Another song, “Handgun” featuring A$AP Rocky, is set to drop tonight along with an album pre-order.
Stay Dangerous arrives Aug. 3.
