YG

Born and raised in Compton, California Keenon Jackson aka YG (Young Gansta) started rapping at the end of his sophomore year of high school at Paramount when he found out someone (who didn't like him) had recorded a diss song and posted it on Myspace. He found it funny and amusing that one person disliked him that much to go that far. He decided to respond as best as he could through music. He was 16 turning 17, so like most he was working with the bare-essentials. His initial recording equipment consisted of his laptop, his bedroom, and a home microphone. Since that day, he has been writing and recording music. It became a passionate and productive way for him to spend his time versus in the streets where his fate could possibly be death or jail. "It really happened out of the blue to me, but since then I found out this is something I really love doing"- YG
