Song Review: YG "Twist My Fingaz"
Fri, 17 Jul 2015 14:35:29
Los Angeles MC returns with his biggest banger to date.
YG made a modern hip-hop classic with last year's My Krazy Life [Pu$haz Ink, CTE World, Def Jam Recordings]. It showed a different side of Los Angeles with a cinematic story worthy of the big screen, and it also gave us massive singles "My *****" (Remix) [feat. Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, Meek Mill, & Rich Homie Quan], "Who Do You Love?" [feat. Drake], "Left, Right" [feat. DJ Mustard], and more. However, he's upping the ante again with the new track "Twist My Fingaz"—the first to be released from his second full-length album Still Krazy. The wheezing keyboards and slick, simmering beat sound like they could've come right off The Chronic or soundtrack of an early nineties MTV Jams clip. It's effortlessly dope.
At the same time, YG serves up one clever and catchy verse after another, flexing his incredible rhyme talents yet again. Everything converges on his most infectious refrain that's bound to get everybody bouncing in the club and singing along in the car. "Twist My Fingaz" is a new West Coast anthem that's bound to live on. California hip-hop has its king.
