12 Motivational YG Quotes

Hip hop artist YG, grew up in the rough streets of Compton where gangbanging was a natural part of life for almost every teenager. He quickly slipped right in to the gang world and was robbing houses and contributing to the violence. However, YG had a spark that none of his friends got, something within that pulled him to rapping and wanting to make it out of the hood. He began creating punchy party anthems and tales from the block and before long, he got signed with Young Jeezy, but the lifestyle he was involved with kept following. Going to jail and even getting shot at a few times. Thankfully his resilient mindset never let the negative past get him thrown off as he cut certain friends and even went straight to the studio right after leaving the hospital with his battle wounds. These 12 powerful YG quotes symbolize the strength, grit and perseverance that he gained from the harsh realities he grew up in.

When I went to jail, it was a real sticky situation. When I caught my case, they started bringing up other cases while I was in jail. It really never turned out to be nothing, but, if I would have been caught up in that, I would have been in jail for like four years. So when I got home, I got that rush and it made me realize that I’m here for a reason, and then a few months later I got signed. That’s how I really knew I was blessed.” – YG
