Young Gangsta was born as Keenon Dae'quan Ray Jackson in 1990. When YG was just eighteen he formed a record label, 'Pu$haz Ink' with his friend DJ Mustard. He worked on his music and released a few songs on the internet, which gained him a fan following. His noticeable songs in that early stage were “She A Model" and "Aim Me”.
Songs such as these brought YG to the attention of the record label Def Jam. The deal between the label and the artist was finalized and Def Jam signed YG in 2009. The president of the label L.A. Reid wanted someone to bring West Coast rap forward. YG with his singing skills and stage presence perfectly fit the description.
