ABM: What is your Rap name? Tell us the story behind your hip-hop name?
Young G: I go by the name of Young G. I came up with that name after having a conversation with my big brother Lamont an he was basically telling me it was time for me to elevate my game and he wasn’t to fond of my previous name “Young King Lg” I really wasn’t either so i came up wit Young G and thats how that happened.
ABM: Has anything happened in your life that led to the decision of becoming a musician?
Young G: My big brother had a HUGE influence on me he. He had been doing music since he was my age so when he came from the south to visit me he would always be doing something on his laptop music related, and shit one day i asked him could we do a song and he said yeah I really didn’t expect him to say yeah. So moral of the story we wrote a song called “The Block Is Hot” and every since then I fell in love with this music.
ABM: How did you get your start in the hip hop scene?
Young G: I was in a music program called “Project Level” they had me in the studio and doing shows, shit like that it was a great experience and helped me a lot but due to miscommunication I ended up leaving the program and choosing my own lane.
