According, to YG his career stalled because he had a bad record contract.
But he admits the way he was finessed by white record execs was probably karmic payback for the hustling he used to do.
YG, who's been in a reflective mood lately, broke the situation down on the No Jumper podcast.
"When my sh*t start movin' like, my record deal was f*cked up for ten years straight. "I just got out of that sh*t some months ago. So like, hell yeah, my sh*t was all bad. I never owned none of my music I put out from f*ckin' my last album back. I ain't own nothin' so I just got out of that. But like, the fact that I was in some f*cked up deal, you know what I'm saying, that made me start thinking about other sh*t," YG said.
"It was hard. I was f*cked up. But I did a lot of stealing and robbin' and sh*t when I was young so, I look at it like, that was my karma," he continued. 'Them motherf*ckin' White people in offices stole from me and it was my karma 'cause I used to rob sh*t like, a lot... 'YG, know how it feel to get stole from, n*gga. Don't do no more stealing.' Alright, thank you, God, I got you."
