EXCLUSIVE: YG Announces "Welcome to Bompton" Title for Def Jam Debut; Young Jeezy to Executive Produce


(AllHipHop News) On Sunday night (January 27), Def Jam signee YG announced the title of his long-awaited debut album, Welcome to Bompton.

On the heels of the release of his most recent mixtape, Just Re’d Up 2, YG also told AllHipHop.com that Young Jeezy will be executive producing the effort, after the two developed a chemistry in the studio working on the Cardo produced song “We Playin” featuring Wiz Khalifa and Jeezy himself.

“I’m gonna be on some YG, turnt up street sh*t. I’m gonna do the ‘Welcome to Bompton’ theme, that’d be dope. I’m turning the C to a B, so n*ggas gonna be talking, like oooooooh.. that sh*t gonna be hard, yea that’s gonna be hard. And its my first album, it’s like an introduction at the same time, its my first album, like my introduction to the whole world.” YG told AllHipHop.com.

The 22-year-old rapper also explained to AllHipHop.com that he believes it’s time for his debut album, agreeing with some notions that his in-house sound may have been ahead the curve as he waited for the so-called “Def Jam push.”

But YG really didn’t feel it was time for his album, until he saw the support from the streets and the clubs thanks to songs made by his in-house producer DJ Mustard.

Over the past few years DJ Mustard has produced songs like 2 Chainz “I’m Different,” Young Jeezy’s R.I.P. ft 2 Chainz and Tyga’s#### song “Rack City,” and Drake’s “The Motto” ft Lil Wayne and Tyga.

“It feels good for the sound to be expanding how it’s expanded. Shout out to 2 Chainz and Tyga for having those big records, and Jeezy for the “R.I.P.” record” YG told AllHipHop.com.

“That has helped the sound, like 2 Chainz and Jeezy they the south, and Tyga got the Young Money look, they put the bread behind sh*t to make it crack. Drake helped out with ‘The Motto,’ so that’s good man, its less work I gotta do, and it’s gonna make my sh*t crack off faster. It’s time for the real. Its time to bring it back to were the sh*t really came from,” YG said of the DJ Mustard produced tracks.
