YG has revealed that Sydney motley crew Triple One will be the national support for his Australian tour which will hit our shores in two short weeks.
Continuing their whirlwind year, sharing the stage with YG will be among the many highlights. Their breakout hit ‘Tarlo’ brought their vicious and volatile raps to the masses with an add-on triple j, leading the way for singles ‘Valentine Kid’ and ‘Showoff’ to follow. The crew boast over 600,000 monthly Spotify listeners and were crowned triple j unearthed’s Feature Artist of the Week in June.
YG will be joining us to launch his most recent, third studio album ‘STAY DANGEROUS’ released in August and features guest appearances from A$AP Rocky, Nicky Minaj, Ty Dolla Sign and more. The full length debuted at #5 on the US Billboard 200 – his third top ten in the US – with single ‘Big Bank’ going Platinum. In Australia, it debuted at #15 on the ARIA Album Charts.
The tour will coincide with his slot at Spilt Milk in Canberra which has sold out, making the national tour the only place to catch YG.
YG’s debut album ‘My Krazy Life’ dropped in 2014 with features from Drake and Schoolboy Q amongst its guests, sending the 14-tracker to number two on the album charts. His follow up ‘Still Brazy’ took a more political route, the viral, anti-Donald Trump single ‘FDT’ became an anthem during the presidential election in 2016. YG also entered the ARIA Top 20 charts in 2016 with Jeremih, featuring on his international knockout hit ‘Don’t Tell Em’.
Over his time in the music industry, YG’s collaborated with the best including Mariah Carey, Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar, Drake, Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj and 50 Cent solidifying his heavyweight status.
YG heads back to Australia after his debut 2015 co-headline tour with long-time collaborator Ty Dolla $ign. His follow up 2017 tour sold-out in record time and forced a reschedule to accommodate all his die-hard fans. He then returned to the US to support Kendrick Lamar on the 15-date D.A.M.N tour, ensuring his incredible high energy live show is certified by the best.
