All Bay Music: What is your Rap name? Tell us the story behind your hip-hop name?

Yoey Composes: I go by Yoey Composes, I mean it was simple really like I was playing around trying to make myself a producer name. I was like “Composes”, and put my name in front of it.. and just ran with it ever since.

All Bay Music: Has anything happened in your life that led to the decision of becoming a musician?

Yoey Composes: Well my dad Mafiyo Rapkind, and he was always a part of this entartainment business, so I literally grew up around it my whole life. I didn’t choose it, it chose me type of thing.

All Bay Music: How did you get your start in the hip hop scene?

Yoey Composes: Let’s see, I mean it was around like my 8th grade year my dad got a macbook with garageband and I was lowkey making some slumps and it really just inspired me to do the same. So I took the mac while he was on the road and started doing what he did, and from there I grew and I still am.

All Bay Music: Where are you from, and what was it like growing up there?

Yoey Composes: I am from Sacramento CA, the best city in the world and it’s cool growing up here. I mean for the most part I’ve lived in Rancho Cordova, but when my mom lived out here we bounced around South Sac a lot too. But this is my city though, I love it and I’m about to put it on the map.

All Bay Music: What do you typically rap about?

Yoey Composes: Let me make this clear though, I am NOT a rapper, I am an artist, I make beats (which is what I started doing in middle school) then I started rapping and then I started singing like 2 and a half years ago. To be honest I make songs about so many different things, but the females top it all. 65% of my music is dedicated to girls so yeah.

All Bay Music: What are your last full length releases people can go check out right now?

Yoey Composes: My new song featuring my big bro Show Banga called “Left” on iTunes, Spotify, Soundcloud, YouTube and all. My other one is “Treat You Better” which was on my last mixtape that’s on Thizzler’s YouTube channel, and my Soundcloud account @YoeyCompoSeS

All Bay Music: What are you currently working on to be released?

Yoey Composes: I actually just finished this fire joint with my bro Mike Sherm. We smashed the song, and when I tell you we smashed it… I mean it’s some real heat, check that coming real soon.

All Bay Music: Whats your last visual release people can check out, tell us about it.

Yoey Composes: Well my last visual was actually me and Showy’s song “Left”, we actually just dropped that video within the last month. Check that out also on YouTube.

All Bay Music: What is your ultimate goal at the end of your career?

Yoey Composes: Man, my ultimate goal is stack and put my mom in a house, have my own record label and set the bar high for these artists. I don’t even want mega money, I just want to eat good.

All Bay Music: Any business ventures or ideas you got in the works?

Yoey Composes: I mean me and my manager been working on some stuff, we got some stuff in the cuts trying to build my portfolio so these people can stop sleeping on the kid, but I’m loving the journey. This journey keeps me humble and shows me what true patience is.

All Bay Music: Who is the most impactful artist in your life who has inspired you and why?

Yoey Composes: To be honest the most impactful artist in my life has to be Sage The Gemini off tops. That man is about his money, and yea I know him personally, but he taught me that this music is fun and all but at the end of the day it’s business. I promise you you’re going to get a Yoey x Sage mixtape somewhere throughout my career, I ain’t settling for less!

All Bay Music: How can people reach you?
