Last month, YG unveiled his sixth studio album titled I GOT ISSUES, which saw appearances from J. Cole, Mozzy, Roddy Ricch, Moneybagg Yo, H.E.R., Post Malone, Nas, and more. Preceding the release were plenty of well-received singles like “Alone,” “Run” featuring Tyga, BIA and 21 Savage, “Sign Language,” and “Scared Money” featuring J. Cole and Moneybagg Yo. So far, fans have been able to enjoy accompanying music videos for “How To Rob A Rapper” and “I Dance.”
Today (Dec. 9), the Compton-bred emcee returns with “Miss My Dawgs.” The reflective new single boasts an assist from hip hop veteran Lil Wayne and is dedicated to YG’s friend, Slim 400. On the song, YG delivers some emotional bars that pay homage to his riders who are no longer here with him:
“Man, I miss my dawgs, the ones I pick up for, ain’t never missed a call/ Plottin’ to get it poppin’, we had plans to get it all, wishin’ you was here, dawg, to ride these foreign cars (Ride these foreign cars)/ Man, I miss my dawgs, thuggin’ on the block, really, pistol in the drawers/ Tryna make it out the hood, my dawg had a cause, f**k all the ops and f**k the law, they did him fraud (They did him fraud)/ My dawg is one who ride for me”
Prior to this, YG’s last body of work was 2021’s Kommunity Service project, which was a joint album with Mozzy. The project was led by singles like “Perfect Timing” featuring Blxst and “Bompton To Oak Park.” The duo steadily dropped off accompanying music videos like “Vibe With You” with Ty Dolla $ign and “Mad” featuring Young M.A.
