Yuall: During the "Crank Dat" era I was the hype at any and every party, school function, club, you name it. I was the king of the party when it came to dancing. A lot of the dances were generic; you did them to every song that had that vibe and it just came naturally to me. Whenever Soulja Boy's "Crank Dat Soulja Boy" came on, I was in there and would always be surrounded by a group of people waiting for the "AHHH YUUUAAALLL" part of the song. Someone made a joke about it by calling me "YUALL" and it stuck. I mean; I'm DAT BOI, YUALL.
L: Where are you from?
Y: Originally from Chicago and moved to Atlanta in High School.
L: Ok, and where are you located now?
Y: I travel a lot between Atlanta and Jacksonville, FL.
L: What inspired you to begin a career in music?
Y: My father, he was killed when I was sixteen. Prior to his murder, he began Carbonari Record Company in Chicago. He loved music just as much as I do; I wanted to carry on the legacy. He truly inspired my musical ambitions.
L: If you had to describe your sound in one word what would it be?
Y: Futurama; I make music for an audience who enjoys the club scene. My music tends to place you in a futuristic, FUTURAMA rather, vibe. It’s that simple.
L: Are you currently working with a label?
Y: Not yet signed, but affiliated with Porter House Music Group -Travis Porter.
L: How did you link up with Porter House Music Group?
Y: I met them prior to stardom through my cousin but my best friend introduced us on the “music tip” (for lack of a better phrase). I ended up building a relationship with their management: Al and DLeaks, and it took off from there.
L: What would you say sets you apart from other artists in the industry?
Y: MY posh. Keyword, MY - because I'm sure other artists may be compared but I'm simply different. I make music worthy of the crowd without all the extra sexual and violent content or innuendo. I'm just doing me, grinding.
L: I see the use of the term "Posh" blowing up on Twitter due to your new single, how did you come up with that term and what does it mean?
Y: The term originated during an ooVoo conversation with DMV artist TopDolla. POSH means a variety of things; it’s more of a lifestyle than anything. POSH is elegant, fashionable, and exclusive - we use it in the same sense, simply replacing the term 'swag' with POSH; it’s an upgrade.
L: What artists inspire you?
Y: I honestly can’t be specific. I kind of just come off the dome with my style of music and my flow.
L: Would you be interested in making music in other genres besides hip-hop? If so, what?
Y: Hell yea, POP! Just to expand to a different crowd or audience.
L: What's next for you (what upcoming projects are you working on)?
Y: I have a mix tape dropping this fall entitled “Posh&Tats”, so look out for that. I'm working on a video for my new single "I Got Posh", and I'm also working on my third mix tape, "Futurama Cartune" featuring Spaceman Kelo.
L: Do you do shows? How would you describe your daily schedule?
Y: Yes I do, and my motto regarding that is "Cut The Check". My daily schedule consists of school and promoting, (I host college parties in Jacksonville, Florida). I go to the studio in between. I've done one tour thus far. Shows? Those are spontaneous! I've done as many as four shows a month considering my academic schedule.
L: Do you plan on doing any shows in Miami?
Y: We're working on a show this up and coming school year with Barry University. For any other bookings or inquires, my manager, Ron Jernigan, can be contacted at (904) 924-4634.
L: What advice would you give up coming artists trying to make it in the industry?
Y: Grind, grind, grind, and grind harder. Take everything you do serious. Feel your own music, because if you feel yourself - everyone else has no choice BUT to feel you.
