If 4REAL 4REAL is anything like the two singles we’ve received from YG before its release, we’re in for a pretty exciting ride. “Stop Snitchin'” is a potent track that falls perfectly in line with the rapper’s character. “Go Loko” is unlike any single that the artist has ever released in his career, sparking a direct contrast. YG has proven to be one of the most loyal members of the hip-hop community. He always stays true to his 4Hunnid gang and after the unfortunate passing of his close friend Nipsey Hussle, he’s been sharing countless memories with the Los Angeles legend. After delaying his surprise album drop to give time for anybody mourning Nip’s loss, YG has confirmed that his upcoming album will be released on May 24. Today, he shared the official album cover and it actually includes a line of text dedicated to his fallen brother, honouring Nipsey at the bottom.

The cover is broken up into several photographs, with portions of YG’s fit being shown off four times. At the bottom, there is some handwritten cursive script saying, “In Loving Memory of Nipsey Hussle.” The tracklist has not yet been released for the upcoming work but we wouldn’t be surprised to hear some bars about his late friend, or perhaps an entire tribute song.
Later this week, YG will be making his debut on Ellen and he will surely perform his hit “Go Loko,” which has quickly become a favourite in his arsenal. Peep the cover below and stay tuned for the full album on Friday.
