Recently, YG has been dominating the headlines. Signed to Def Jam, YG is one of the first major artists from the West Coast on the roster. There has been a lot of focus on Los Angeles’ hip hop scene, as several artists from the city have emerged.

Recently, YG released his Just Re’d Up 2 mixtape with DJ Mustard and is working with Young Jeezy on his debut album.
YG and DJ Mustard talked to Sway Calloway for his Shade 45 show, “Sway in the Morning,” where they talked about several topics.
