YG, DJ Mustard and Easy McCoy


Roseland (map) Northwest
Fri., May 16, 8 p.m. 2014 All Ages


Halfway through "BPT," the first song on YG's My Krazy Life, producer DJ Mustard drops a familiar, squiggly synth line into the mix, an unmistakable nod to Dr. Dre's revolutionary productions of the 1990s. If the narrative around My Krazy Life hasn't made it clear, YG and Mustard will connect the dots for you: West Coast gangsta rap is back in the spotlight, and these two are its sound, fury, and conscience. They're a devastating team. Mustard's beats are lean and playful, obvious heirs to the G-funk throne, while YG singsongs his way through a day in his LA: hanging out, partying, juggling relationships with various women, robbing houses, getting caught. He wraps with "Sorry Momma," a heartfelt tale of regret that paints a 3D picture of rap's new ratchet-anthem kingpin. Hiphop's evolving in strange ways these days, but if it's a pure, fun rap show you desire, YG's your man. BEN SALMON
