Pushaz Ink trio YG, DJ Mustard and Ty Dolla $ign grace The Source‘s final cover of 2014—earning “Rookies Men of the Year” nods in the process.
Why, you ask?
All year long, YG, Ty Dolla $ign and DJ Mustard joined forces, whether it was on YG’s debut album My Krazy Life, Ty Dolla $ign’s own slew of bangers (“Or Nah”, $ign Language) records (“Or Nah”) or the gazillion hits DJ Mustard produced, not to mention his own album, 10 Summers. They single-handedly changed not just regional radio, but the national sound-scape, all in their first full year in the league.
After much deliberation, debate, argument–and a couple storm-outs–it was decided that for the first time, The Source will have a dual Man and Rookie of the Year–in this case, men and rookies.
