YG Enlists Drake for Anti-Hater Anthem ‘Why You Always Hatin’?’
YG first partnered with Drizzy on his breakthrough 2014 single, “Who Do You Love?” On their second go-around, the duo address the naysayers who don’t want to see them shine. Produced by DJ Mustard, the song boasts a bouncy bass groove and soft keyboards.
Drake kicks it off boasting about how many chicks he's bagging and holding down his hometown of Toronto. "Hunnid 4 times how it go down / Slaps on deck for the Oak Town / On mamas, man I did it with my own sound / And I got my own city that I hold down," he raps.
Then YG delivers his braggadocios rhymes with a stop-and-go type of flow as he salutes Drake and his Cali hometown.
"If you ain't know me, bet you know now / Drizzy came through with the verse for me both times / Bompton that's an automatic hold down / What's that? Ask no questions, just hold it down," he spits.
The chorus is courtesy of Bay Area’s up-and-coming rapper Kamaiyah as she poses the question, "why are you hating?"
No one should be hating on this song and it's the perfect setup for YG's upcoming album, Still Krazy, which has no release date yet.
However, YG is hitting the road in support of the effort. The trek begins on June 3 in Anaheim, Calif., and ends June 16 in London.
