Los Angeles rapper YG remains one of the most prominent figures in the rap game today with a new album titled 4REAL 4REAL. The album is projected to sell around 38,000 copies in the first week. This is only YG’s fourth studio album but he has been in the music business since 2009.

The album kicks off with the song “Hard bottoms & White socks.” The song has a nice smooth piano beat in the back round but there is a point where he says a few words then emphasizes the word “B**ch” with a beat drop and takes away the songs mellow tone.

The best song overall on the album is “Go Loko” featuring Tyga and Jon Z. The song and the music video blend well. The beat is a smooth Latin beat with a twist of hip-hop. Both styles compliment each other well and form a catchy beat. YG starts and Tyga gets the middle part of the song. The ending is Jon Z in spanish followed by a trumpet solo with the chorus softly in the background.

The weakest song on the album is “Her Story.” The song has a slow melody played by a violin. YG isn’t on the song, which is a kind of false advertising and its a 1:58 second verse from artist Day Sulan a fairly unknown rapper, who I have never heard of before. The beat is slow but Sulan raps fast and it’s a really offsetting theme because the lyrics don’t match the beat.

The song that is most known is probably “Stop Snitchin,” a song that was first performed at Coachella 2019. The song is a diss at rapper 6ix9ine who YG had a rivalry with summer 2018 just before 6ix9ine was arrested and started a plea deal. This song repeats the chorus multiple times and is somewhat boring but with the meaning behind the lyrics, the song has little bit of comedy to it.

4REAL 4REAL has a few good songs but not enough to make it a memorable one. I would give it a three out of five stars.
