On the eve of his first major U.S. headlining tour, West Coast rapper YG's highly anticipated debut album, MY KRAZY LIFE debuts at #1 on the Billboard Top Hip-Hop/R&B Albums chart with first week sales of 61,026 copies. Upon its release, MY KRAZY LIFE was hailed by the New York Times as "impressive"; as "a ratchet music masterpiece" by SPIN; as "Album Of The Week - a worthy new chapter to [Compton's] legacy" byUSA Today; and "what could be the rap album of the summer" by Billboard.
MY KRAZY LIFE enters at the top of the chart on the strength of its controversial RIAA platinum million-selling single, "My N***a" featuring fellow Def Jam superstar Jeezy and Rich Homie Quan. "My N***a" is produced by YG's longtime collaborator and Grammy©-nominated producer DJ Mustard, who will join YG on the My Krazy Life Tour. The 10-week, 40-city tour opens on March 29th at Syracuse University, and wraps up at the House of Blues in San Diego , CA on May 24th.
