YG

With his mug shot from a burglary arrest for cover art, straight-outta-Compton rapper YG’s debut album, “My Krazy Life,” really isn’t all that crazy. The 24-year-old budding star doles out hard, Ice Cube-style street tales alongside salvation-like calls for women and weed as salvation. Young Jeezy was the album’s executive producer and guests on the single “My N---a,” which made it to No. 19 on Billboard’s Hot 100. The young gangsta is performing with DJ Mustard, who helmed most of the record. Chris Riemenschneider
