Yukmouth ft. Ray J & Crooked I - I’m A Gangsta

Posted 7 years ago
Tags: Yukmouth
Featuring:
Producer:
The Slapboyz
Album:
The West Coast Don

The current West Coast rap scene is host both to artists who revel in the region’s hip-hop history and acts that take a different, often more hipster-friendly approach to the genre.  East Oakland native Yukmouth clearly falls into the former camp; on the lead single off his latest LP, he proclaims with pride, “I’m A Gangsta.”  As the self-proclaimed “West Coast Don” makes clear in his rhymes, however, his version of the gangsta lifestyle involves rocking expensive clothes, picking up fly women, and having a good time at the local club.  In addition to handling hook duties, Ray J steps into the spotlight for a guest verse which finds him describing one epic night out (complete with weed, liquor, women, and even a little X), and Booth favorite Crooked I‘s hard-hitting lyricism ends the record on a high note.  Featuring a midtempo, synth-driven instrumental by The Slapboyz, I’m A Gangsta is slated to appear on Yuk’s long-delayed fifth LP, due out May 5th via Smoke-A-Lot/Asylum.
