(June 2, 2016 – New York, NY) Bompton-based rapper YG’s long awaited second album, now titled STILL BRAZY, is set for a June 17th release on Def Jam Recordings, with pre- orders launching June 3rd at 9pm PST/12 am EST ( Fans who pre-order STILL BRAZY, will instantly receive 3 new YG tracks, including “Why You Always Hatin’?” featuring Drake and Kamaiyah, along with “F*ck Donald Trump,” featuring Nipsey Hussle and “Twist My Fingaz.”

STILL BRAZY, is the sequel to YG’s critically acclaimed #1 debut album, My Krazy Life, hailed as “a modern gangsta rap classic” by Complex, and chosen as one of 2014’s best hip-hop albums by NPR, the New York Times, Billboard, and numerous other media outlets. The highly anticipated new album is a hard-hitting musical compilation of experiences that have influenced YG, his life and his music

FADER’s graphically raw cover story in the December/January Now Issue was clear: “YG’s reference points sit squarely within the South Central of his day, providing the soundtrack to contemporary L.A. kids with little sense of nostalgia. His good days demand more cheer than Ice Cube’s. He raps about money and women obses­sively and gleefully, and would almost always prefer a party to a brawl – a constant joyfulness that’s always overshadowed any more sinister narrative. If Lamar speaks about young gang­sters in Compton, YG speaks for them.” Read the full Fader cover story HERE.

YG will kick off the arrival of STILL BRAZY with the Still Krazy Promotional Tour, a week long solo headlining tour of the U.S. leading right up to the album release. The Still Krazy Promotional Tour opens June 3rd at the Powerhouse 2016 concert at the Honda Center in Anaheim, CA, the first of three major headlining radio-sponsored shows that also include the KQKS / KS 107.5 Summer Jam at Fiddler’s Green in Denver on June 10th; and the KMEL 106 Summer Jam at Oracle Arena in Oakland on June 12th.
