(AllHipHop Features) Less than 48 hours before his fourth studio album hits all streaming platforms, C̶o̶m̶p̶t̶o̶n̶ Bompton rapper YG hosted an exclusive “Influencer” listening party in Los Angeles for his new album Stay Dangerous.
News of the event was first shared on YG’s IG story to his 4.2 million followers.
Pulling up to Fakework Management offices in North Hollywood, attendees were welcomed with endless food, drinks, a Stay Dangerous album cover photo opp, and endless good energy.
Stay Dangerous is the first project YG has released since his critically-acclaimed Still Brazy from 2016.
Around 11 pm, YG finally arrived on the scene and was immediately swarmed. This was the man of the hour.
The 4Hunnid founder made his way to the front and gave a fair warning that the venue was about to turn into a sweatbox, which 100% accurate given the amount of people inside the room.
All was forgotten once the music started.
The lights were dimmed and immediately the evening turned into a full-blown function.
YG played the album in no specific order with a bottle of Don Julio tequila in one hand and the microphone in the other.
With “Big Bank” taking over airwaves across the States, he had to let the entire song play through — which had all females in the room rapping Nicki’s verse verbatim.
Standout moments include hearing Ty Dolla $ign’s feature on “Power,” Jay 305 rapping his part on “Bulletproof,” Kamaiyah and Mustard posted on either side and even YG checking if the Postmates he ordered had arrived yet.
A few moments later, a large pizza box was handed to
YG also played his most recent single “Handgun” featuring A$AP Rocky, which in my opinion is the most turnt track on the project.
The 15-track project played over a span of close to 45 minutes.
In addition to the August 3 release date, fans can look forward to the 4Hunnid fashion show this Sunday at Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
This might be his best project yet. #StayDangerous.
