YG has been vocal about his daughter has influenced his life, even including lyrics about her in his music. “I dedicated my life to this music s**t back even before my daughter came into play,” YG told Vulture.
“It’s really for the best for all my people. So when I’m gone, it be like, s**t, I’m doing what I’m supposed to be doing, because if I wasn’t doing this, I’d be at the house trying to figure out what the f**k to do so my people be straight.
So it’s like, I be having that thought, but then I be having that in my head too. Like, I’m doing the right s**t, but I’m gone, though…I’m around her, but I be gone a lot. But she lives with me. So I make sure I go the extra mile.
I do the extra s**t, a lot of times, just to make sure my daughter…she knows who daddy is, she knows what’s up.”
