The “My Hitta” rapper sat down with Billboard to discuss numerous things, including the June 12th incident and the follow-up to his debut album My Krazy Life. The interview took place at a West Hollywood studio, where the Bompton emcee previewed some of his new music from his upcoming album Still Krazy.
Fortunately, YG is doing well and still working on making more turn-up music for his fans. Check out a few excerpts from the interview below:
What happened the night you got shot?
A little incident. I got shot in my hip, but I’m all right.
What was going through your mind when it happened?
Survival. After I got shot, I’m telling everybody, “Take me to the hospital, because I can’t die.” We hop in my homie’s car and bam — we got in a car accident! We hit an island trying to avoid another car. We had to hop out of the totaled car, hop in another car. At the hospital we had to tell people, “Take me serious right now — you don’t even understand what’s going on.” It was wild.
Who contacted you while you were at the hospital?
Everybody — family, friends, the label. Lil’ Boosie Facetimed me. I was in the hospital, in a wheelchair, and I lost all my contacts but I see the 504, so I knew it wasn’t anybody in L.A., so I ask who it is and he says, “It’s Boosie. What’s up man, you straight?” He was real concerned, he was like, “My n—a, you good?” and I’m like “Yeah,” and he was like “All right, my n—a.” I know who cares about me and who’s faking. I don’t have to get shot to figure that out.
You just played a new track “Twist Your Fingers” about your experience being shot. Was that hard for you?
Was it hard to write about the situation? No, not at all. I mention it and talk about it on the record and let everyone know what and let everyone know whatever they going to know. I’ve been through real shit and I still go through real shit, and I made it in sticky situations and turned the negative into a positive.
