Rapper YG is flanked by security guards with GUNS as he volunteers at a Thanksgiving food drive in his hometown of Compton


Rapper YG was flanked by security guards that held what looked to be assault rifles as he volunteered at a Thanksgiving food drive in his hometown of Compton on Saturday.

The Toot It And Boot It hitmaker, 33 – whose ex and mother of his children was recently involved in a deadly car crash – was spotted arriving to Campanella Park where the event was held.

He sported a sleeveless, blank T-shirt as well as a pair of black, loose-fitting trousers. A belt was wrapped around the waist of the pants and the star also slipped into a pair of red sneakers.

A black cap was placed backwards on top of his head and the rapper added an assortment of sparkling, silver chain necklaces to complete the look.

According to the event’s main Instagram page, the performer also helped ‘power’ the event over the weekend.

He was later seen standing at a table topped with pieces of ham and assisted in filling large paper bags with food items. 

The security guards stayed close to YG as he made his way to the food drive and also stood nearby as he took on volunteer duties. 

Back in June 2015, the rapper notably was shot in the hip three times at a recording studio located in Studio City, California, TMZ reported at the time.

He was driven to the hospital to be treated and representatives of the star informed the outlet that the injuries that he sustained were ‘not life threatening.’ 

The police soon went to the hospital to interview YG about the incident, however, TMZ was informed that the performer had been ‘very uncooperative.’ The unknown assailants that had broken into the studio were never found and are still at large. 

In his 2016 album titled, Still Brazy, the rapper addressed gun violence and seemingly referenced to the past incident in the track called, ‘Who Shot Me?’ 

Some lyrics included: ‘Did the homies set me up?/’Cause we ain’t really been talking much/I know that sounds sick/My thoughts dark as f**k/Like the barrel of the pistol I saw when he sparked it up/Prolly was mad as f**k when I walked out the hospital.’

He also sang: ‘I got trust issues if I don’t f**k with dude/My body language gon tell him I don’t f**k with you/I can’t sleep at night this s**t unbomfortable/Having nightmares of me coming for dude.’

YG previously opened up about growing up in Compton a few months earlier during an interview with Theo Von on his This Past Weekend podcast

‘I grew up in like, multiple different places,’ he explained, and then added, ‘It was like, shootouts. S**t going on like that.’ 

He also added that while some areas were ‘chill,’ other locations in the city had ‘robberies going on a lot in one spot.’ 

Theo then responded with, ‘I hate robberies,’ prompting YG to say, ‘We was doing them though so it was different.’ 

He added that, ‘It was all fun,’ but continued, ‘That’d be the crazy thing…A lot of people there grow up, living like a ghetto dangerous life.’

‘Like, a lot of us think it’s fun. And then when you make it out…you start looking back like, “D**n I was playing with fire like the whole time.’ 

YG has been filtering through a busy schedule and recently dressed to impress in an all-black ensemble as he attended the GQ Men of the Year Party earlier on Thursday in Los Angeles.  

He also stopped by the Welcome to Collegrove Album Visual Presentation on Tuesday with his two daughters: Harmony and Vibe Jackson. 

The rapper shares his two children with ex-girlfriend, Catelyn Sparks, who was recently involved in a deadly car accident last month in October in which an 89-year-old woman was killed.

Police sources told TMZ that ‘no drugs or alcohol were involved’ and that Sparks ‘did not commit a crime’ in the tragic incident.

In the accident, Sparks, 29, was behind the wheel of her 2023 Tesla when the other motorist, driving a 1985 Cadillac, made a U-turn in front of the Tesla, police told the outlet.

Sparks’ Tesla made impact with the driver-side door of the Cadillac, leading to fatal injuries for the driver, who was pronounced dead at the scene, law enforcement told TMZ.

Sparks was taken to a nearby hospital after suffering what authorities described as minor injuries.

The outlet noted that it was not clear if Sparks and YG are currently romantically involved with one another. Sparks intimated that she and YG were on the outs after the rap artist was seen vacationing with Saweetie in Cabo San Lucas in May.
