Oakland, CA – YG has been promoting his new “Red Friday” mixtape heavily all week, leading up to its eventual release on, well, Friday.
Except that’s not how it went.
A leaked version of the stream went up on Audiomack today (today being Thursday, and not Friday) and now YG is blaming his label for the early unofficial release.
Seeing how much success he had with “Fuck Donald Trump,” this Twitter rant is one DJ Mustard beat away from being YG’s next banger.
The 8-song project features guest appearances from 21 Savage, RJ and Mitch. Listen to the stream below.

YG is really making a big deal out of his Red Friday mixtape and has now planned a special Black Friday signing in Oakland, California for the project’s release.
The Compton rapper announced on Instagram that he will be selling hard copies of Red Friday for $100 apiece at a signing and meet and greet at Beastmode in Oakland on Friday (November 25). This follows the example of his friend Nipsey Hussle, who sold his Crenshaw mixtape for the same price back in 2013, advertised as “The World’s First $100 Album.” YG says there are only 1,400 “kopies” of Red Friday available as part of the Proud 2 Pay initiative that Nipsey founded.
Fans who can’t make it to Oakland will still be able to download a digital copy of the Red Friday mixtape upon its release.
