Compton Rapper, YG, Launches a Marijuana Line

The hip-hop newcomer is already treading on new ground.

Published May 13, 2011

Rappers have started clothing lines, alcohol lines and sneaker lines. Now YG, the almost one hit wonder behind the misogynistic anthem "Toot It and Boot It," has started a strain of marijuana that's sold at a California dispensary, Green Aid.

YG OG, as he named it, apparently sold out as soon as soon as it hit the shelves. Brooks Johnson, Green Aid's general manager says, "As soon as we featured the new YG OG medicine it became an overnight demand amongst our patients." They plan to restock the strain in a few weeks.

YG recently released a mixtape, Just Re'd Up and is recording a debut EP, Fresh on Campus, set to drop in June.
