MY KRAZY LIFE is a collaboration between Pu$haz Ink and Jeezy's Atlanta-based CTE label. The relationship came to fruition after Jeezy came to Los Angeles and witnessed the movement that YG and DJ Mustard had created with their new West Coast rap sound. Since then, Jeezy has taken YG under his wing, establishing a mentorship that played a dynamic role in influencing the direction of the album. YG's career in music started five years ago when he discovered his passion for rapping in high school. Using just a mic and minimal recording equipment, the rapper began his journey to success by releasing popular mixtapes and performing to packed crowds at the hottest clubs in Los Angeles. Working alongside his long-time producer DJ Mustard, the duo quickly carved their own lane in music as the pioneers of a new West Coast rap movement made popular by YG's independent label known as Pu$haz Ink and the release of multiple mixtapes.
