“I really got somethin’ to say. I’m the only one that made it out the West without Dre. I’m the only one that’s ’bout what he say. The only one that got hit and was walking the same day.” YG may have obtained his success without the help of Dr. Dre, but he taps into the Good Doctor’s sound on the instantly funky, “Twist My Fingaz.” The heavy bass-driven interpolation of Funkadelic’s “One Nation Under a Groove” makes this the latest in a long lineage of Cali G-Funk.

The song is the lead single from YG’s upcoming album, Still Krazy, and also represents his progression in working with new producers. While his last album, My Krazy Life, was anchored in the sounds of DJ Mustard, “Twist My Fingaz” features the talents of Terrace Martin (Kendrick Lamar, Snoop, Murs). Check it out.
