Welcome to the return of OFT Album of the Week! I am your host, Matty, and after a long break, Album of the Week has returned. This week's album is YG's My Krazy Life, the debut album for the West Coast rapper. Me and TyFaizon decided to discuss the album track by track live and see if it deserves all the hype.
1. Momma Speech Intro
Matty: Alright Momma Speech Intro, an intro kind of in vein of old rap albums
Ty: I always hated useless intros
Ty: Could have been at the start of BPT
Matty: I agree with that.
Matty: I like the synth on this.
Ty: BPT is great
Ty: Some of the best production on the tape
Matty: Actually it's probably the best song on the album for me.
Ty: YG is really flowing
Ty: Yeah it’s probably my 2nd favorite
Matty: Pretty good production and YG is killing it.
Ty: Even tho I like the album I wish he rapped like this more
Ty: I like how short and sweet this song is
Matty: Actually most of the songs on the album are pretty short.
3. I Just Wanna Party (ft. Schoolboy Q and Jay Rock)
Matty: Now onto I Just Wanna Party.
Matty: This is where the album starts to lose me.
Matty: Because it's when DJ Mustard begins producing.
Ty: The most bearable Mustard beat imo
Ty: I love the "beat the fuck out a nigga" part
Ty: He really reminds me of my cousins
Matty: Yeah I really like the synth on that.
Matty: Everything else is really really generic Mustard production.
Matty: The bad piano beat, the hey chants, etc.
Ty: This beat is cool imo
Ty: Except for those 4 keys he plays in ever fucking beat
Ty: Q is trash on this
Matty: Yeah, on my first listen I thought it was YG at first.
Ty: Q usually kills features too, you can tell Q doesn’t like the beat tbh
Matty: Really forgettable Q verse.
Matty: On the other hand, we got Jay Rock.
Matty: Who just fucking kills it on this song.
Ty: Rock murks it
Ty: Rock will kill anyone on a song
Matty: I just really wish this beat wasn't terrible.
Matty: Because that synth is so cool, should have been integrated in the beat itself.
Ty: YG needs to work with Zaytoven tbh
Ty: And he needs to work with Metro Boomin more
4. Left, Right (ft. DJ Mustard)
Matty: Left, Right now.
Matty: This is actually one of Mustard's better beats.
Ty: This beat is cool
Ty: This song is just cool. I usually skip it even tho I dont dislike it
Matty: Still very much sounds like Mustard, but at least he's trying some variation.
Matty: God, I hate that fucking hey chant he puts in all his songs.
Ty: lol yeah its first page on beatproduction.net shit lmao
Matty: But besides BPT so far, YG's been nothing but mediocre and forgettable.
Matty: Any average radio rapper could go on these beats and nothing would be different.
Matty: In fact one of them is a close associate of Mustard, Tyga.
Ty: YG is one of the catchiest rappers imo
Ty: He's something special
Ty: He’s one of the few rappers who I enjoy who reminds me of actual street niggas I know
5. Bicken Back Being Bool
Matty: I know it's a gang thing and it ties into the album's story, but it's still so fucking stupid.
Ty: i really like this song a lot
Matty: OH MY GOD MAKE THE HEY CHANTS STOP
Ty: I dont really like any of the production but I dont hate it
Ty: YG is just an enjoyable rapper to me
Ty: Yeah the chants are annoying
Ty: And he uses them in every beat
Ty: Its probably YG asking mustard to add chants
Matty: This is one of Mustard's better beats.
Matty: Besides the shitty hey chants.
Ty: You got your homie in jail you’s a snitch
Ty: He really reminds me of my cousin
Matty: I think that's probably why I don't enjoy the album as much as you.
Matty: I don't relate to this stuff as well being middle class white kid.
Ty: Yeah matty you've prolly never been around none of this
Matty: But I should at least be able to enjoy the story and some of the music, but I really can't.
Ty: I’m not a street nigga but I’m around street niggas daily who really live like this
Matty: I do kind of live near an urban area.
Matty: I live fairly close to East St. Louis and St. Louis
Matty: I see some of the shit.
Ty: Yeah St.Louis is fucked up
Ty: But I have niggas like this in my family and my close friends
6. Meet the Flockers (feat. Tee Cee)
Matty: A lot of these songs are short af.
Ty: I like that about this album
Matty: It's not really a complaint with me.
Matty: But it kinda shows YG can't really hold a song on his own for very long.
Ty: Meet The Flockers could have been an interlude tho tbh
Ty: Tee Cee murks him on this
Matty: I thought Tee Cee was Jasper for a moment.
Ty: dead at jasper
Ty: This reminds me of the first The Click album
7. My Nigga (feat. Rich Homie Quan and Jeezy)
Matty: Onto the big single, My Nigga.
Ty: My Nigga is great
Matty: I really don't like this song.
Matty: The farty synth sounds really fucking terrible.
Ty: Any guys can somewhat relate to this song tbh
Ty: This is prolly mustards beat
Matty: Yeah it's Mustard.
Ty: it has his best drums tho
Matty: Is it me or was YG's verse really quiet?
Ty: I meant to say this is prolly his worst beat lmao
Ty: The YG album has some eh mixing for a big release
Matty: I think it was mainly Vine that made me hate this song.
Matty: Fucking Vine, man.
Ty: Matty you can't feel this song?
Matty: I really can't.
Matty: The beat is atrocious.
Ty: "If he tripping over a bitch that aint my nigga" that seems like it could be relatable to any guy
Matty: I don't like Rich Homie Quan, Jeezy, or YG.
Ty: I dont really feel Jeezys verse
Ty: I never go on vine luckily so I fuck with this song
Matty: I don't even know why I go on Vine.
Matty: Most people there are awful unfunny people.
Ty: I thought My Nigga was by kid ink when it first dropped because I always had kid ink and yg confused
Matty: YG is just another radio rapper who somehow got too hyped by KTT.
8. Do It To Ya (feat. TeeFLii)
Ty: This fucking song man
Matty: But this song is so fucking bad.
Matty: Mustard's already a bad rap producer, he's even worse at trying to do R&B.
Ty: This singer is a bitch
Ty: YG doesnt help this terrible song much
Matty: God he's such a terrible singer.
Matty: I can hear the autotune pretty clearly.
Matty: And not like T-Pain or Kanye autotune.
Matty: I really don't like YG's delivery on this song.
Matty: Sounds like he's got peanuts in his mouth or something he doesn't wanna spit out.
Ty: That mama line is cringe
Ty: literally everyone has a mama nigga
Ty: This song is really bad
Matty: I don't wanna hear you fucking a girl
Matty: Just cause Biggie got a BJ in the studio doesn't mean you should be fucked in your song.
Ty: I had skits of the rapper fucking some girl
9. Me & My Bitch (feat. Tory Lanez)
Matty: Two R&B songs in the row.
Matty: Aka the bitch shit for teenage girls to relate to.
Matty: Or the Drizzy influence.
Ty: lol at him getting mad about his girl cheating while he's cheating
Ty: I like this song
Ty: The singer is good
Ty: He sounds like dream, this beat is really good and YG is doing good
Matty: Yeah this singer is much better than, uh TeeFlii?
Matty: You ain't gonna be successful with a shitty name like TeeFlii.
Ty: TeeFlii is prolly one of his random homies from HS
Matty: Weed carrier.
Matty: "Yeah we can just fix it up with autotune man!"
Ty: YG seems genuinely hurt in this song. It comes off as sincere. Its a good song imo
Matty: Yeah, definitely one of the better songs since it seems Mustard didn't produce it.
Ty: Yeah this could be an actual R&B song
Matty: But if this goes with the story, I really find it hard to sympthaize with YG.
Ty: The ending>
Ty: All of this stuff goes with the story, its just his normal life
10. Who Do You Love (feat. Drake)
Ty: This beat is shit
Ty: Who Do You Love beat I mean
Matty: I think it goes without saying, but Jesus all of Mustard's shit sounds the same.
Matty: CHAMPAGNE PAPI THO
Ty: Drakes verse wasnt that hard
Ty: I wasnt feeling the flow but it wasnt bad
Ty: YG was better imo
Matty: It's better in comparison to YG for me.
Matty: Are those the same synths from I Just Wanna Party?
Ty: Yeah im pretty sure lmao
Ty: Im gonna find mustards labtop and delete all of his chants
Ty: The dude at the end sounds stupid
Ty: This skit is stupid too, rip to all them niggas
11. Really Be (Smokin N Drinkin’) [feat. Kendrick Lamar]
Matty: If you're a rapper, don't say boners.
Matty: Seriously, it's one of those words thats automatic cringe.
Ty: I literally laugh everytime I hear that
Ty: I dont think ive ever heard a rapper say boner
Matty: There's a reason for that.
Ty: This chorus is great
Matty: Besides the Kendrick verse, this seems to be another filler track.
Ty: The beat during the verses is pretty meh. Way too simple but during the chorus its great
Ty: I like this song a lot. Its some of YG's best rapping
Matty: Yeah, another one of the better beats.
Matty: Because Mustard also isn't involved.
Ty: Mustard doesnt have any of the top 3 beats on this album
Ty: This is def the most relatable song on the album
Matty: I can't really tell if I like Kendrick's delivery on this song.
Ty: Kendrick isnt great on here
Ty: He needs to stop doing that stupid ass raspy wayne wannabe voice
Matty: Kendrick's raspy voice is pretty bad.
Ty: But the verse lyric wise is piff
Matty: Oh I like this breakdown after Kendrick's verse.
Ty: I hate this breakdown
Matty: Really? One of the better things about the album for me.
Ty: Sounds like some a struggle death grips then turns into wack synths
Ty: Which doesnt fit on the song at all. Fucks up the west coast vibe
Matty: Anything from the shitty west coast vibe this album brings I can dig.
Matty: Oh damn this beat is fucking nice.
Matty: Metro Boomin right?
Matty: This dude should have produced most of the album instead of Mustard.
Ty: I agree I hope he works with him more
Matty: Would have fit with this Bad Kid Maad City YG was trying to do.
Ty: I fuck with this a lot because even tho like I said im not a street nigga there has def been nights where I was out a 1am up to no good having my mom worried and shit
13. Thank God (Interlude) [feat. Big TC and RJ]
Matty: I like this Big TC verse.
Ty: This interlude is great
Matty: Kinda sounds like a homeless street performer or something.
Ty: I like how its put together, nice song structure
Matty: Even though it doesn't say Mustard produced it, I can hear him all over it.
Ty: It prolly is some homeless street performer from Bompton YG invited to the studio lmao
Ty: RJ is dope, this verse is piff
Ty: Its written well
Ty: The way he controls his vocals are dope
14. Sorry Momma (feat. Ty Dolla $ign)
Matty: Last song, YG's self-realization of sorts about the bad things about gang life.
Ty: This is the best song
Ty: Matty have you ever argued with your mom like this?
Matty: Yes, definitely.
Matty: It's more about the C's on my report card rather than robbing houses.
Ty: The "you little disrespectful nigga" part hits me right in the feels
Ty: Whenever my mom calls me disrespectful or shit like that it really makes me feel like shit because I know I am a lot of the time
Ty: The "I know I lied a lot I know I aint slick" part too
Matty: But this is definitely one of Mustard's better beats.
Matty: I really like the horns.
Ty: Mustard did this ?
Ty: Holy shit
Matty: It was co-produced with someone else tho
Ty: Great outro
Ty: Overall out of 10 what would you rate it?
Matty: Overall, I'm feeling like a 4/10.
Matty: Except for some songs/verses, YG is just another radio rapper who went a little over his head thinking he could make a combination of a concept album and a west coast classic.
Matty: Along with feeding off a trend (Mustard's production/sound, which I don't like).
Ty: I’m feeling a 7/10
Ty: This had some eh songs and def some eh production but I liked the album and found it refreshing because I get bored with rap a lot
Ty: Also I got a few more questions for you matty
Matty: Hit me.
Ty: Top 3 favorite songs? Least favorite song?
Ty: Also best and worst beat in your opinion
Matty: Top 3 Best Songs (No Order): Bpt, Me & My Bitch, and 1am
Matty: Top 3 Worst: My Nigga, Do It To Ya, Left, Right
Matty: Best Beat: 1am
Matty: Worst Beat: Who Do You Love
Matty: What about you?
Ty: Top 3 best: Sorry Mama, BPT, and Bicken Black Being Bool
Ty: Top 3 Worst: Do It To Ya, Left, Right, and I guess I Just Wanna Party if I had to choose a 3rd
Ty: Best beat is def Sorry Mama for me
Ty: Worst beat is Left, Right
Ty: Alright matty, that was fun haha. I’ll do this with you again if you want me to haha
Matty: Yeah man, this was fun. Definitely have to do it again in the future.
