YG Charging $100 for Physical Copies of ‘Red Friday’ Mixtape; Unveils Track List
This Black Friday will be covered in red as YG will drop his new mixtape Red Friday on Nov. 25. While the project will be available for free on digital mixtape outlets, the Compton rhymer will offer physical copies of the tape for $100 a piece.
YG will host an album signing in Oakland, Calif., where fans can cop the tape and have it autographed by the “Still Brazy” rapper, himself.
In an announcement on his Instagram page, YG writes:
"So I just linked up with bro @nipseyhussle & his Proud 2 Pay direct to consumer Platform To do ****THE WORLDS 2ND $100 CD**** SUPER FANS & SUPER SUPPORTERS ONLY Mixtape in - store and signing will take place @ BEASTMODE store in OAKLAND Friday the 25th, 10am - 4pm 811 broadway Oakland ca, 94607 "Hard kopies $100 each, And only 1,400 kopies made."
With only 1,400 copies available at the event, if YG gets to sell all of them he's expected to make a cool $140,000 that day. So it's a win-win for everyone.
Clearly, YG is following in the footsteps of his good friend, Nipsey Hussle, who sold his Crenshaw mixtape for $100 back in 2013. The rapper reportedly earned $100,000 off the sale of his tape. Jay Z would purchase 100 copies of the project and post a picture of those copies on his now-defunct Life and Times blog.
Meanwhile, YG unveiled the track list to Red Friday. The eight-song tape features guest appearances from 21 Savage, RJ and Mitch. The previously released song "One Time Comin'" is on the collection. Peep the song list below.
