Over the past decade YG has maintained a strong presence as a top-tier Compton rapper. While he may not have dropped any huge selling chart toppers, he’s always put solid numbers with every release.

As one of the best rappers of the 2010s, YG has always been a reliable artist ever since his incredible debut, My Krazy Life, which was the flipside to the coin that was Kendrick Lamar’s Good Kid, m.A.A.d City. Over the next few years, the Compton rapper has been releasing a string of albums that have made an impact every time he dropped.
