YG Gets Own Brand of Designer Weed

“YG OG” Is Out Of Stock At Califonia’s Favorite Marijuana Clinic

LOS ANGELES, CA (May 11, 2011) - In addition to scoring a #1 hit single “Toot it and Boot it,” criss-crossing the country on The Young and Hung...Over Tour with Universal Republic artist Bobby Brackins, launching his new single “Patty Cake” and gracing the cover of XXL’s coveted Freshman issue, Compton’s YG can now add to his list of recent accomplishments the creation of his own brand of weed--“YG OG.” After only one week since the release of his mixtape “Just Re’d Up” YG has landed his own marijuana brand

The new strand of weed is cultivated and sold exclusively at Green Aid, a medicinal marijuana dispensary in Orange County, California that specializes in a wide variety of weed and daily specials.

Green Aid manager, Brooks Johnson met YG a few months ago after a show in Anaheim via a promoter for the event, who happened to be a patient at his marijuana clinic. YG and the manager of Green Aid hit if off and quickly came up with the idea to develop a strand of weed that would suit the lifestyle and tastes of the Def Jam recording artist. The Compton rapper is still in awe of the creation, “Having my own weed makes me feel like the muthafuckin man,” smiles YG.
