Q&A With Rising Houston Based Rapper Yung Pooda

Bro Yung Pooda!!! I would personally like to thank you for rocking with our BLOG and most importantly pushing dope real Hip Hop! Let me ask you how long have you been a Hip Hop artist?

I’ve been an artist for as long as I can remember, I literally started at 10 yrs old and had a double mixtape at 11.

What specific area of Houston, TX you from? In downtown or in the outskirts?

I’m not originally from Houston I just lived there for a while and created a buzz but I’m from Orange, Texas born and raised.

Also, how did you get you emcee ame?

My rap name is just my childhood nickname.

Let’s get right into it, your latest single “Repeat Dat”, give us the background story behind this single and video?

Well, when I first got the beat I ain’t think that it was “it” but as I kept playing the beat back I started liking it the thinking about past, present and future and it just came to me.

Let us know how your style if different than all the rap artists out there!

My style is unique, it’s so different I’m still figuring it out.

How do you go about writing and producing your material? What type of mood are you usually in when making music?

I write music in every emotion and mood but I’d said my best art comes when I’m stressed free, relaxed and not worrying about a million things

How are you coping with this whole Covid 19 situation? Has it delayed any new music production by any chance?

I’m big on meditating. I do it to stay centered and calm. Other than that, I’m being careful and extra watchful and it definitely has put a pause on a lot. But I’m looking forward to getting out to promote my record when the time is right.

We have to ask, with all this social discourse and revolt, protesting and rioting, exposed police brutality toward blacks,BLM movement, how do you feel about this? We would love your perspective on the climate we are living in right now?

I feel like its overdue and the awareness of it should have been noticed and addressed long ago. But now that the spotlight is on the subject, I feel like it need to be taken seriously and black people along with other races that agree with these movements should make a goal, strategically plan and stick to it till things change.

With this being IndieHipHop.com, we always ask this important question. What is your definition of true “independent hip hop”?

Independent hip hop to me is self grind, putting in that real groundwork and getting a name for yourself, investing into yourself and not waiting for a third party to start making moves.
