Check out I2G’s exclusive interview with Yungg Bleeze.
I2G is here with Yungg Bleeze, how’s it going?
Its going great, nothing but good energy… feel me?
Tell me a little bit about how you got your start in music and who are some of your musical influences.
I got my start in music when I was younger I would write out my feelings when I was upset about something. Then when I was 12 years old I went with my cousin to Disneyland and the whole time we wrote songs based on the trip with full verses and hooks. By the age of 13, we had started a teenage rap group, had won a local all ages talent show, which the prize was 10 hrs of free studio time which of course resulted in our first studio recorded demo.
My biggest influence was Lil’ Wayne, lyrically his punch lines were mad vivid. Don’t get me wrong theres some other artists that can paint a picture but lil wayne I feel set the standard for what today is considered “Bars”. I also like Kanye west because his ear for music such as which instruments and sounds and it just never ceases to amaze me how intricate and different each one of his productions can sound then to top it off a very strike the nerve type artist, all of those qualities I hope to hit with yungg bleeze music.
Do you have any upcoming albums getting ready to release?
I got a ton of new music dropping this summer! As it stands I’ve been writing my own comic book series, “OZ. Forever the Comic”, and will be releasing a soundtrack for the comic book this July which also will feature the rest of the artists on OZ. Forever Entertainment. I have a couple more E.P.’s and Singles to drop over the summer outside of that, there could just maybe be a debut album top of 2018 we will see haha.
Do you have any more upcoming videos?
Yes. I have a sort of “day in the life” type of video from our last comic book tour in NorCal at the Hightimes Festival, that will be releasing in couple weeks. Then later this month ill be flying out to Virginia Beach to shoot a video for another song “No Friends” , so be looking for that this summer as well!
What are your current thoughts on the music industry?
Stay independent, be your own boss and staying focused = success, that’s it and keep good company around.
