YG (short for Young Gangsta), born Keenan Jackson, released several songs that gained over 2  million Myspace profile views with over 1 million plays each and a string of sold put performances across the US.  The 19 year old was signed by Def Jam in 2009[1] and released his first single titled “Toot It and Boot It”, which peaked at #67 on the Billboard Hot 100, in 2010.“I decided to sign with Def Jam because that was the label that I’d been hearing about for my entire life. It’s a 100% blessing,” said Y.G., who has already achieved that first charted hit Toot It and Boot It. “It’s a crazy feeling. I know I’m blessed and this is only the beginning. Im here to stay.  Pushaz Inc is the label and the whole world will soon know what this Pushaz Inc movement is all about.    

YG was also featured in XXL Freshmen Magazine.   His single “Snitches Ain’t”, featuring Tyga, Snoop Dogg and Nipsey Hussle, entered the Hot 100 at #100 and at #11 on the Heatseekers Songs chart.Yg is also an actor, starring in the new movie We The Party with director Mario Van Peebles. With his debut album set to be released this year I’m sure his fans will be satisfied. 

YG’s music revolves around the day-to-day travails of the average teenager. Indeed, he attributes his heavy popularity to his ability to relate to the normal person. “My music is about my everyday life,” he said. “That’s why I think so many young people like it — they can relate. It’s what they and their friends are going through every day — shopping, looking for girls, getting in and out of trouble.”
