LA rapper YG hits Auckland in June for a one-off show

Californian rapper YG is bringing his first solo tour Downunder, headlining a one-off show in Auckland in June.

A pre-eminent figure in the thriving US urban music scene, YG and Guests will play live at the Logan Campbell Centre on June 14.

Hailing from the beating heart of LA’s rap scene, Compton, YG started turning heads in 2008 with his debut mixtape 4FINGAZ, before releasing 2009’s ‘Toot It and Boot It’feat. Ty Dolla Sign, which soared up the Billboard Hot 100.

With a reputation as a compelling story-teller, YG went on to make his mark with his debut full-length album, 2014’s MY KRAZY LIFE and 2016’s critically-acclaimed STILL BRAZY, featuring some of the biggest names in the game, like Lil Wayne and Drake.

“[STILL BRAZY is] full of the kind of warm G-Funk that never fails to transport you to the part of the country it belongs to”
Consequence of Sound

“Digging deeper into vintage G-funk flavours with a blend of personal, party and political tracks, the young Compton rapper takes a sizzling step forward,”
Boston Globe

Perfecting his craft in clubs across America, YG has also earned his stripes as a live performer who is not to be missed. Now it’s Australia and New Zealand’s turn to find out what all the hype’s about, but with both Sydney shows and his Melbourne gig already sold out, Kiwi fans will need to get in quickly.
