That One Time YG Pulled Out A Gun At Church…

YG shares life stories, with a song to soundtrack each thugged-out moment

MOMENT: LOSING HIS VIRGINITY (2004)
THE SCORE: “Tear It Up,” Young Jeezy
“It took a minute to slide up in that thang, fa’sho. A nigga was trying to figure it out! [Laughs] It was somebody from around the way—I was low-key talking to her but she wasn’t my girl. I used to listen to Lloyd and Marques Houston back then, all that slow shit.”

MOMENT: DAD GOES TO JAIL (2006)
THE SCORE: “Sorry Momma,” YG Feat. Ty Dolla $ign
“That’s when my life flipped. I was always doing little shit—on the low, because my pops was always on me, trippin’. I was bad as a motherfucker; he used to whoop me in front of the school. When he went to jail I didn’t have to hide the shit I was doing. I was wildin’ out.”

MOMENT: FIRST DRINK (2006)
THE SCORE: “Scotty,” D4L
“I got fucked up. I don’t even remember what I was drinking. My momma was asleep. I drank too much and got a hangover, throwing up, all that. Didn’t drink alcohol again until I turned 18 or 19.”

MOMENT: INITIATION INTO BLOOD GANG (2006)
THE SCORE: “BPT,” YG
“You get jumped on by a certain amount of people for a certain amount of time. I gave my life up for this gangbang shit. The moment you get put on you gotta bang the hood and be involved in gang activities. I’m not trying to say I sold my soul, but I dedicated my life to the set. You could end up dead or in jail for the rest of your life, you feel me?”

MOMENT: FIRST GUN (2006)
THE SCORE: “Hate It or Love It (G Unit Remix) ”50 Cent Feat. Game, Lloyd Banks, Young Buck and Tony Yayo
“My best friend gave me my first gun. When I held it, I was like, “Ooh wee! This is real!”…I threw a party in a church hall, but niggas who we had problems with came. They walked up close and I pulled the hammer out on them like, “Nigga, what’s happenin’?!” Up in the church! They backed back, like, OK, fa’sho.”
