Artists You Need 2 Know – Young Fatal

young fatal

I’ve never met this artist, but when I hit the link to one of his videos, and than another and THAN another, you can tell Young Fatal has heart and drive for days!! Influences from everywhere, but still in love with Southern Hip Hop.. I was nudged in his direction by the homie Ram, and I’m glad I was.. Some artists nowadays have no heart. Just ambition.. It was nice to find an artist that I haven’t met, that stands out with some of my people.. If you don’t know already! You NEED TO KNOW Young Fatal..

Conflict:

How did you first get into music?

Young Fatal:

Growing up I wanted 2 play Basketball, but a 6’2 fat boy isn’t making the NBA, lol.
I always loved rap musik! Decided 2 give it a try, and fell in love with writing music.

Conflict:

What is the best experience you’ve had thus far, with Hip Hop?

Young Fatal:

Being noticed! I love the attention I get 4rm it. I’ll be getting a hair kut or walking outside and sum1 will notice who I am and talk 2 me, it’s dope…..

Conflict:

I feel ya!! I was noticed in County, as a trustee, and it was fuckin’ dope!! Granted, they only knew my voice, but still.. Lol

When did you realize that Hip Hop is what you wanted to do?

Young Fatal:

2003 I was 18 and I just got the 50cent ‘Get Rich or Die Trying’ album and it was some of the most amazing shit 2 me, like it just connected with me. And 4rm that point all I’ve wanted 2 do was be a hip hop artist.

I wanted to make people feel the way that album made me feel.

Conflict:

I jammed that whole album for months!!! For me, it was The Pharcyde, and being a guest Dj on 97.9 when I was 9!! It was fucking over!! Who would you consider your most prominent influences?

Young Fatal:

Damn that’s what’s up!!! Dj on 97.9 sounds dope….. 4rm Houston I’d say Cham and ESG, there delivery with the fast rap but then slowing it down mid verse, the way they put words 2gether always amazed me….. And nationwide I’d say Jay-Z, 50cent, and Master P…. Ghetto D was the 1st rap album I ever heard. As a whole I was hooked..

Conflict:

When did you know that you had no choice but Hip Hop?

Young Fatal:

When i tried 2 walk away but couldn’t stay away…. Hip Hop is my everything. I dream about it, wake up write music, love listening 2 it, everything about me is hip hop. If I never make it in this game, I don’t think I could stop writing music, it’s my way of getting shit of my chest…. Hip Hop is my true love..

Conflict:

Bet….

Who were your influences?

Young Fatal:

Jay Z’s my biggest influence in this game. He’s been in it since 96 and never fell off. Never heard him spit sum wack shit… 2 me the G.O.A.T …….

Conflict:

You’re not the first artist I’ve heard that said the same..

Who would you most, other than Jay Z, like to work with?

Young Fatal:

Houston artists I’d love 2 work with, the people I grew up jamming! Keke, Slim Thug, Cham, Esg, Trae, Z-ro…… Not 4rm Houston, there’s 2 many 2 name….. I love lyrical Hip Hop and the street shit… Not really into the dancing trap rap or all the other shit..

Conflict:

I hate “Swag” rap too, homie!!

Young Fatal:

Hell yea that shit is horrible..

Conflict:

What can you say your style and/or lyrics derive from?

Young Fatal:

I feel like I give people the real me. 100%. The good, the bad, and all in between…. 4rm my mom not being around, 2 her passing away, 2 having baby momma drama, I speak on everything that goes on in my life..

Conflict:

What would you like to say your goal is, in music?

Young Fatal:

My goals are to make money 4rm doing this, so i kan provide 4 my kids…. And 2 be remembered as a dope artist who showed love 2 every1. Who really does this kuz I’ma fan before anything…… And to be #1, I think if that’s not 1 of your goals then, your wasting your time in Hip Hop, if it’s just 4 the money..
