Born Keenon Daequan Ray Jackson, YG scored a record deal with Def Jam after his smash 2009 single "Toot It and Boot It" scorched the Billboard Hot 100. Now inked to Young Jeezy's CTE World, the Compton rapper has gained even more popularity with his infectious anthem "My N----a," the lead single from his debut LP, My Krazy Life. Released March 2014, the album features guest appearances from star MCs like Drake, Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, Meek Mill, Young Jeezy and Kendrick Lamar.
