YG’s My Krazy Life Disappears From Streaming Platforms Following Backlash
 

 
YG’s 2014 debut My Krazy Life has disappeared from digital streaming platforms including Spotify, Apple Music, the iTunes Store, and YouTube, as Genius notes. It’s no longer available following backlash against the record’s “Meet the Flockers,” a song with lyrics about targeting “Chinese neighborhoods” during burglary attempts. Pitchfork has reached out to representatives for YG, UMG, Spotify, Apple Music, and YouTube for comment and more information.

“Meet the Flockers” has faced criticism in the past, prompting outrage from politicians and a petition to encourage its ban in 2016.

Last week, it was reported that employees at YouTube called for the song’s removal from the site; the request to YouTube’s Trust & Safety team was denied in an email from executives to the staff on March 22. An email to the YouTube staff read:

We’ll start by saying we find this video to be highly offensive and understand it is painful for many to watch, including many in Trust & Safety and especially given the ongoing violence against the Asian community. One of the biggest challenges of working in Trust & Safety is that sometimes we have to leave up content we disagree with or find offensive.
In addition, the email noted that the song’s lyrics violated the company’s hate speech policy, but said “Meet the Flockers” would stay up because of an Educational, Documentary, Scientific or Artistic exception, citing the its “artistic context” and noting concern about setting a precedent that would lead to the removal of more music videos.

At the time of publication, the standard edition and several deluxe editions of My Krazy Life are available to stream on TIDAL. All of the editions include “Meet the Flockers.”

Black people don't k*ll each other because of race, skin color, culture etc... Also black on black violence can be easily avoided most of the time.

Artist should remove their entire catalogue if Spotify pulls that sh*t but since most of them are stuck in-debt sellouts...

...they get pimped and slapped by these streaming platforms.

Got to pay for those 20 cars and 80 bedroom homes!

Its back on youtube but they cut out the Chinese neighborhood part. Kind of stupid because this opens a can of worms to a whole bunch of retroactive bullsh*t.

Like I said in another post if they going to ban YG for that they need to ban all those Asian rappers saying n*gga in they song . Saying they going to “smoke n*ggas” if they run up etc. You see it alot with West coast rappers who are Asian.

Clearly says in the song that he's robbing Asians because they keep cash and don't have bank accounts, not because of their ethnicity. Lot of y'all non black people on here love romanticizing black genocide like it's a fu*kin game, but can't even stomach getting robbed on wax.

It's not about owning publishing or masters. Just means the streaming platform will come to you directly and not the publishing company and tell you that you gotta edit that sh*t or they pulling the entire album. As for the reference to Chinese people having cash in they house it's a stereotype, he should just change the line to Arcadia and anyone who knows would know what he's talking about. It's common knowledge in California that you're more likely to get a large sum of money if you're hitting Asian households in certain areas, definitely not all Chinese folks got it like this. I love that he's describing how he planned to commit a strike offense and the issue that everyone is having is that he relies on a stereotype in his planning.
