UTG PHOTOS: YG’s ‘My Krazy Life’ Tour (4/27/14)

Under The Gun sent photographer, Derek Scancarelli, to Irving Plaza in New York City to photograph YG & DJ Mustard on April 27, 2014.

Last week, I’m sure you saw UTG TV’s interview with YG & DJ Mustard. We conducted that interview earlier in the day before the guys took the stage and made the sold out Irving Plaza shake.

The show wasn’t a typical casual hip-hop show–it had a theatrical set and a constant level of energy. It was thoroughly entertaining and even featured appearances by The Lox and Chinx. As if seeing YG and Mustard throw it down wasn’t enough, Jadakiss took the stage like a monster.

After shooting the live performance, the long night came to an end with some photos at YG’s meet and greet with fans. Check out below the jump for my traffic story and photos from the show and meet and greet.

This was an interesting Sunday to say the least. First I conducted the interview; then I drove into New Jersey with one of YG’s road crew. We had to go to the tour bus to pick up some extra merchandise. I spent over an hour in traffic with a guy who was literally straight out of Compton. We talked about everything from hip-hop to hailing cabs in New York. While sitting in bumper-to-bumper traffic entering the Lincoln Tunnel, YG’s hit single “Who Do You Love” (featuring Drake) came on the radio. It was one of those really cool moments when we just looked at each other, did the head nod, then turned the volume up.
