YG ‘Stay Dangerous’ Album: 20 of the Best Lyrics
Since striking platinum success with his debut album My Krazy Life, YG has emerged as one of hip-hop's more beloved young artists, pairing his substance and charisma with a consistent stream of quality projects. In a year that has been filled with blockbuster album releases, YG crashes the party with Stay Dangerous, the Compton native's third solo studio album.
Coming two years after his acclaimed sophomore album Still Brazy, Stay Dangerous finds YG basking in all of his gang-banging splendor, with songs like the lead single "Suu Whoop" making it clear where his allegiance lies. The album also includes ample dedications to romance ("Power") and introspect ("Bomptown Finest") to balance out the proceedings, a testament to the former XXL Freshman's understated versatility.
Although fully capable of carrying a project on his own merit, YG calls in a few collaborators to help with the heavy lifting on Stay Dangerous, with a list of guest stars that includes Quavo, YoungBoy Never Broke Again, Nicki Minaj, 2 Chainz, Ty Dolla $ign, Big Sean, A$AP Rocky, Mozzy and more. Stay Dangerous also finds YG teaming up with longtime partner-in-crime DJ Mustard, who handles the majority of the production with additional boardsmen like TM88, J Holt, Mike WiLL Made-It and more rounding out the project.
After giving YG's latest offering a listen, XXL picked out 20 of the best lyrics from Stay Dangerous that rank among its best and are sure to become some of the most quotable bars from the album.
"Fuck the DA, fuck the P.O./Fuck the president, fuck the po-po/They follow me, wanna keep me close/Try to hold me back, let me go/I sip the drank, I sip the drank/Pick up the phone and call Michel'le/She hold me down, I gotta make the plan/If the plan don't get me, then I don't care/Look in my eyes and tell me what you see/A whole lot of lives depended on me/But I hold it down, I hold it down/I check in when I'm not in town" —YG
"Twos, threes, fours and fives, 800, 900 on mine/I commit crimes all the time, I convinced my homies to slide/Take this pistol, you down to ride? Cock the pistol, it's hammer time/Paparazzi, I'm tryna hide, fuck the bitch, she traumatized/Yeah, just for thinking you surpassed me/Yeah, me and Mustard linkin', we go hammy/Yeah, we both 'bout to cop the Lambies/Yeah, valet the '64 at the Grammys" —YG

"I'm dangerous, I know I live by the gang code/I'm dangerous, I know I'm in love with stank hoes/When I say stank hoes, I don't mean stank/I mean the ones that fuck the first date, dick all in they face/Told my granny I don't know if I'm really Christian, I really did/Just don't know whose story to believe, the Muslims, yours, or his/They told me to talk to a therapist and I did/But that don't change the crazy shit I do, did and lived" —YG
"Now when I pull up, everything exotic/Can't complain, life's sweet, blue drank, hypnotic/The past year I've been makin' all profit/My team finally got it, then somebody shot me/Damn, that's just the devil, my nigga/But thank God it ain't end with a shovel, my nigga/Have it dusted off my shoulders like whatever, my nigga/And Frogg ain't gone he live forever, my nigga" —YG
