#3 — “YG”
Label: CTE World, Def Jam Recordings
YG or (Young Gangsta), is a rapper from Compton, California. Following a successful charted single with Ty Dollar Sign, YG received a record deal from Def Jam Recordings. It wasn’t until YG’s hit rap single “My Nigga” f/ Rich Homie Quan, where YG began to receive serious radio play. This single became an internet sensation, taking over 7-second vine clips.
Along with DJ Mustard, YG co-founded his own label called “Pu$haz Ink“. Although YG has a successful chart history, YG is still not a household name. We do believe that YG will soon become an international rap star, with an even bigger fan base. This west coast rapper has been creating non-stop buzz for the past few years and we believe My Nigga is just the icebreaker for what’s to come. YG will be a huge future rap sensation and an Artist To Watch.
