AllHipHop.com: What’s good Yung Bleu? You’re buzz is crazy right now, but for those who are not familiar, let them know who you are?
Yung Bleu: Yes, My name is Yung Bleu. I’m a rapper originally from Mobile Alabama. I was recently featured in XXL magazine, YoRaps.com, Top40-Charts.com and more. I started music as a young kid watching my brother rap and do music. I really just fell into what he was doing. I started rapping on tapes in my room. I would sit in there all day just recording and then I would take my music to school to let everyone hear it. By the age of 13, I went up another level and started recording in a real studio. But basically, I have a hustler’s ambition coursing through his veins. In 2010 and 2011, I released two Mixtapes called Anticipated and The Movement. The Movement mixtape featured a song called “Little Secret.” The video for the song was well received and it caught the attention of Memphis-based multi-platinum producer Drumma Boy. Me and Drumma boy joined forces to create a banger called “Go Head” which is currently getting a lot of radio spins around the country.
AllHipHop.com: What project are you currently working on?
Yung Bleu: The current project I am pushing is my street album called “Hello World” which is available for download on Livemixtapes.com. I really brought my artistic side to Hello World. It has stories about me and what I’ve been through. Stories that’ll get your blood flowing in the club. Just all around good music. It’s a good project. I worked with Drumma Boy on this project. In fact, the single “Go Head” is the first single off of “Hello World.”
AllHipHop.com: What is your USP? (Unique Selling Proposition) and what sets you apart from other artists?
Yung Bleu: What sets me apart is that I have a certain swag and rhythm in my songs that I think is not heard among other aspiring rappers. My words are put together in a unique fashion. I rhyme with flavor. I have my own flow. And I keep it authentic. I’m not trying to mimic others. I’m just trying to be me.
AllHipHop.com: Who or what are your inspirations?
Yung Bleu: My inspirations include Lil’ Boosie and Do Or Die. But especially Lil Boosie, because he represents the struggles that I was going through at my start. Also my Young Boss Entertainment family inspires me. They give me guidance, direction and motivation.
