YG has always been a real one. The Compton rapper sat down with Montreality to talk through what he’d do if he was to become the leader of the free world, as well as offering up some interesting opinion on the current political system in the United States.
Right off the bat, YG proclaims, “If I was President, I’d give all the families across the United States $100,000 to see what they would do with it. If I was President, everybody would go to college for free. If I was President all the food in the grocery stores would be organic. All these police that’s killing innocent black people, they’d be doing life in prison .. f** that, slaughter they ass, chop they neck off!” While some of those policies are a little rough around the edges, we’d say he stands a decent chance of getting elected in 2020 with these policies. Watch the full interview above.
YG also opened up on the current glut of non-political hip-hop by citing a certain West Coast legend, and what he’d be doing in the current political climate: “If Pac was around he’d be pressing the line about all this bullshit that’s going on. Some of this rap shit that’s going on, prolly wouldn’t be going on. He’d be vocal about it.”
He also offered up another political quip about one of his least favorite people, Donald Trump, “Right now the biggest lie is Trump ‘tryna make America great again. The whole system is corrupted. They playing ball how they playing ball.” Revisit the video for “FDT” below.
