State your reason for choosing music as a career.

I’ve always been around music. Dad’s a drummer while my mom’s a shy singer. I’ve also worked behind the scenes of concerts. The rush you get before you perform and that rush when you have killed a performance is an energy that only music itself can create. Then too there’s really not much to do here in the shady.

.

Tell us how you write the lyrics to your song.
My lyrics are my feelings. I let my feelings get captured by the instruments within the instrumentals. I vibe and often come up with lyrics.

.

.

.

Tell us about your life outside the music world.

I just chill and relax. I’m a disabled veteran father of a beautiful girl and husband to a very strong and supportive wife.

.

.

.

Brief us about your music career.
As I stated in “All The Way In” – “I got deeper in the game around ‘08”. I performed in Germany. Started with G Enterprise and became a solo artist in 2010. From there it has been an adventure.

.

.

Elaborate on how you come about your artist’s name.
All the friends I have had growing up have been older. They would call me young yay so I dropped the yay and the O out of young. Yung!

Micheal Jackson – Thriller

Truth when I was little I used to be horrified of this video lol. Maaaaaan. Good memories my older sister and her friends had the routine down to a T.

.

Tell us your source of inspiration.
Everything is an inspiration. To me waking up is enough inspiration to provide good music.

.

.

.

Tell us your impression on dealing with paparazzi.

I’ve never been hassled by paparazzi. If it starts happening I will embrace to an extent that nothing is to be fabricated into what is not. (Knowingly it will not happen). I will deal with them appropriately.

.

.

.

Elaborate on the A-Z process of this song.

“All The Way In” came about while I was listening to instrumentals searching for that one to express my feelings in moment. I had taken a look back on the road of the start of who I’ve become. I never could slow up. I refuse to let another person feed my family so the chorus was developed. I’ve always had someone being a negative weight and letting it go was the best. This song was my outlet.

Tell us what you have on the way for your fans.

Working on a new R&B Jam will be titled ‘On My Mind’ ft. Seph. She’s an artist that is amazing. Currently looking to be booked at the 89th Street Collective.

.

.

.

List the names of those that have supported you so far.

First and foremost my better half Seph. My hitta, my ninja Keith “Big Tank” Harris. May and Barry LeDay. My Parents always support. My daughter Kailani y’all who I’m all the way in for.

.

.

.

Tell us your opinion on the use of auto-tune.

Auto-Tune… is good for certain projects; not a whole album (unless you’re T-Pain) but I think it’s about how you use it.

.

.

.

Tell us your opinion on quality and quantity in terms of releasing songs.

I believe fans deserve quality and quantity. Yet quality always out-does quantity. Sure you can put out massive tracks but if the quality of the sound isn’t tolerable; producing that mass quantity is a waste of money.

.

.

.

Tell us your opinion on comparing music career to non-music career.

Career is a way of making money. Non career is pretty much a hobby.

.

.

.

Tell us your opinion on categorizing music into genres and sub-genres.

At least we have a way to identify the type of music we create like and relate to. Genres and sub genres are borderline like people. Different in many ways but have one common goal to create the best music of our choice.

.

.

.

 
State the genre you hate most with reason.

I don’t hate any specific genre. Just don’t have an acquired taste for certain genres. I can tolerate all genres, but don’t hate any. I’m not a hater get it how you get it.

.

.

.

List your five favourite movies with reasons.

Friday – That’s a classic from crackhead Ezelle to the next door neighbor Stanley.

Soul Men – Rest in comedy Bernie Mac. This movie is hands down on of the funniest movies with my two favorite actors. Samuel L. Jackson and Bernie Mac.

Bad Boys 1 & 2 – 2 more movies with great story lines and actors. I’ve seen every episode of Martin and The Fresh Prince of Bel Air.

Original kings of comedy – I love to laugh. If I claim to be a comedian you should be hilarious or at least enjoy it. Steve Harvey is a hell of a host. D.L. Hughly has always been the best trash talker. Cedric the entertainer that man has the smooth old school cool cat and reminds me of my uncle Lou stayed fly.

Bernie Mac (Greatest.Of.All.Time.}.
