Underneath the album’s title, ‘My Krazy Life’, is the number 03192009, the date – 3rd March 2009 – that YG got signed to Def Jam. In an interview with Urban Daily, YG explained that he narrowly avoided a two year jail sentence for burglary that would have resulted in him being incarcerated that day.
