YG says the secret service censored his lyrics on new album Still Brazy


Ahead of its June release, YG says the American secret service censored some of the lyrics on his second album Still Brazy.

Speaking to DJ Whoo Kid, the West Coast rapper said the secret service specifically had an issue with some of the lyrics featured on Fuck Donald Trump (FDT).

YG sid: "The secret service called in on Universal and was like 'send me the lyrics to YG's album cos we gotta know what he's talking about'... That's why on FDT, on the album, there's parts of the song I had to blank out.

"Ever since John F Kennedy got assassinated they can't have no people promoting 'kill Trump', 'shoot Trump', 'pop Trump', all that. And we had those type of lines up in the song.

"I didn't even realise that shit at first, when they told me the song is banned and I can't do this, I'm like 'it's America, there's freedom of speech - what's going on?'"

YG said the album was never meant to be political - instead, when he first started writing for it the theme was meant to be a continuation of the personal lyrics heard on My Krazy Life. But the killing of black Americans, coupled with the rise of Trump, caused the shift.

"I'm speaking 'bout some real shit," he told Whoo Kid.

YG also spoke about the difference between Los Angeles and Hollywood, how his relationship with DJ Mustard was mended, getting shot, and what will happen if Trump becomes president.

"I think we fucked... I'ma go to Canada or something," he said.
