To celebrate the record’s arrival, he just unleashed the music video for the new single “Blood Walk” featuring Lil Wayne and D3—the latest signee to YG’s 4Hunnid Label. The throwback clip intercuts grainy nineties-style footage of police choppers and looming tension as Wayne rips bars on a half-pipe, D3 carries the g-funk West Coast hook, and YG leads the party as red rags wave everywhere. It’s an old school South Central rap video for a new era.

Buzz for the 13-song opus reached a boiling point prior to its impact. The rapper recently graced the cover of the Los Angeles Times Calendar section, and the in-depth profile noted, “In his music, YG speaks to the immediate, hour-to-hour rage and vulnerability of Black life as protests churn and police kill and terrorize with seeming impunity. It’s fitting that “My Life 4Hunnid” is his darkest and most wounded album for Def Jam yet.”
Last month, he unveiled the latest single “Out On Bail.” Drawing critical acclaim, HYPEBEAST described it as “a track heavily influenced by the career of 2Pac,” and Complex assured, “YG keeps the heat coming.”
My Life 4Hunnid also boasts the 2020 bangers "SWAG," and “FTP,” and "Laugh Now, Kry Later!" To date, songs from the album have tallied a total of 30 million streams and 30 million views. Check out the full tracklisting below.
Now, YG has delivered another classic with My Life 4Hunnid.

Simultaneously, YG remains a pillar of the community. He donated $100,000 worth of food from his restaurant Fishbone Seafood in honor of Juneteenth. Additionally, he founded the nonprofit 4Hundred Waze. Among various initiatives, the nonprofit provided $10,000 in PPE to Los Angeles families hit hardest by the COVID-19 pandemic residing in Emergency Crisis Housing. Plus, he built a platform for buzzing artists such as Day Sulan with his 4HUNNID label in partnership with Epic Records. The 4HUNNID brand also comprises a clothing line of the same name co-owned by YG and creative director Gavin Mathieu. Infiltrating high fashion and occupying space in retailers such as Barneys, Zumiez, and more, the line amplifies his impact. Not to mention, the accomplished actor graced the big screen in White Boy Rick with Academy® Award winner Matthew McConaughey. YG merchandise available at 4hunnid.com.
