Two years later, YG collaborated with Snoop Dogg, Tyga, and Nipsey Hussle for “Bitches Ain’t Sh*t.” The song achieved moderate success, debuting at number 100 on the Billboard Hot 100.
In 2013, YG released the lead single, “My N***,” preceding his debut album, My Krazy Life. The single earned five-time platinum status in the U.S. and entered the charts in seven countries. Later, his follow-up single, “Who Do You?” featuring Drake, also hit the charts and peaked at number 54 on the Hot 100. The single later earned a double platinum certification. Apart from the singles’ charting success, the platinum-selling album My Krazy Life peaked at number 2 on the Billboard 200.
After his incredible debut effort, YG released five more highly-acclaimed studio albums, including the latest, I Got Issues.
