AceShowbiz - YG has given fans a special treat ahead of the release of his new album. On Friday, September 23, the "Toot It and Boot It" hitmaker released "Maniac" and its accompanying music video.
On the track, the 32-year-old raps about how others may perceive him. "They say I lost my mind, I done turned to a maniac (Maniac), half a milli' on my neck, I'm rockin' big racks/ Kidnap his b***h, he can't get his b**ch back, take that, take that, take that, take that," he spits.
"I done lost my mind, I done turned to a maniac (Maniac), the money got my head gone, they don't know where he at," the emcee goes on. "I be jiggin' with golden luggage, I carry that, f**kin' on a popstar, I'm tryna marry that/ Uh-uh, YG, you changed, ever since you been f**kin' with them superstar b***hes."
YG is set to drop his "I Got Issues" album on September 30. He previously released some singles off the upcoming record, including "Alone", "Run" featuring Tyga, BIA and 21 Savage, "Sign Language" as well as "Scared Money" featuring J. Cole and Moneybagg Yo.
Other artists who will be featured on the album are Nas, Roddy Ricch, Post Malone, H.E.R., Mozzy, D3szn, Duki and Cuco. Speaking about working with the former, YG told TMZ, "It was crazy 'cause I've been trying to get Nas on some s**t for years."
"I was trying to get him on my second album and s**t, but it just didn't happen," he went on sharing. "But he's been showing love since day one, he always supported my s**t and all that. So when I finally got the verse, I was like, 'Finally.' "
"The song that I got him on, it makes sense 'cause I'm popping it like I'm God's son s**t, and that's like his s**t," he continued. "So when he did that s**t, I was like, 'Yeah, timing is everything.' It was good though, I can't wait 'til the people hear it."
