Today, on Guitaa Artist Centerstage, we have a Multi-talented Hip-pop artist “Yung Pre”
Introduce yourself to our audience, what genre of music do you consider your work to be?
Hello, I am Yung Pre. I consider my music to be hip-hop.
What and who were your early passions and influences, What inspires you to make music?
As a kid I spent a lot of time making music with cousins and other relatives. At the age of ten I became a big fan of NY artist Ja Rule. My father would later tell me that a family member of ours was responsible for a lot of his top hits which drew me in more. Making music gives me a since of relief. Expressing real life scenarios that others may be able to relate too but can’t speak about themselves.
Tell us about that one memorable performance and favorite venue which you still wish to happen again?
Back in 2017, me and my crew entered into music showcase in Dayton,OH for a chance to win some cash as well as expanding the brand. At the time I had a lot going on and couldn’t remember new songs after a few listens. The group wanted to do a song we recorded the night before, but my verse wasn’t written until then. So we get to the show and everyone was like, “yo Pre you got that verse remembered yet.” I knew I didn’t but said yes anyway. To make a long story short, we won and the votes came mainly from other artist. Being able to get the attention of other artist meant something to me, it solidified what we already knew.
If you could collaborate with any musicians dead/alive, who would you collaborate with and why?
If there’s one artist I could collaborate with it would be Tupac. He’s a legend and the music he made was lit and impactful.
Any Tips to keep the balance between professional and music life?
The biggest challenge has been trying to break into mainstream scene. We not quite there yet but things are looking up and big moment feels closer than ever.
What has been your biggest challenge as a Musician? Have you been able to overcome that challenge? If so, how?
I used to practice the craft a lot with the homies when we were a group, but now its more so a natural thing. Speaking about me is easy, its life poetry.
What advice would you have for someone wanting to follow in your footsteps?
Shorten your sleep schedule and get a plan. The main reason artist don’t see growth is because they won’t become strategic. Know how you want to be perceived to your audience and mastermind that shit.
