Featured artist: OddBall aka Yung OB - The 100 Series™ & OddBall Up Next!
Below is a short interview with the upcoming underground artist OddBall aka Yung OB.
How did you decide to become an artist?
OddBall aka Yung OB: Growing up with music, since 4th Grade, in my mind I made the conscious decision music was something I wanted to create. Yet with no clue how, and I didn't pick up any instruments, I wanted to do more vocal work, just didn't have a clue what style or anything So I began writing Poetry and became more focused on writing never putting music down. Wasn't until I discovered Dr. Dre's 2001, Eminem's MMLP, and 2Pac All Eyez On Me that I knew exactly what style I wanted to do. With my writing already begun, the style and way I wrote changed as I became more of a Hip Hop head picking up CDs from Rakim, N.W.A, Ice Cube, 2Pac, Notorious, etc etc. Listening to Lyrics, style, Delivery. Rakim is a Huge Inspiration to teaching me how to construct verses on paper and how to freestyle. Education is key. I Officially became an Artist after High School. Teaching myself everything I know today. But I can say I was Born an Artist and My Life is the Discovery to What Legacy will I Leave behind.
From Sony A&R "If you're not ready, Don't Rush it. Never put yourself in a situation you'll Regret in the Morning." Was told to me when I was hesitant to sign a deal, I didn't because I knew I was going to regret it and The Agent knew it too. I'm happy he told me that. To this day this sticks with me, Thanks Mark!

Last but not least: Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
