Q&A With Young Cashflow
Thank you for this interview! For the readers would you please introduce yourself? I am Young Cashflow, CEO of CME Worldwide LLC. Thanks for having me.
Why do you rap? What’s your motivation? Rapping is my form of therapy. Id eventually want to get paid and help others get their foot in the door if possible. My motivation is my kids…My mother…my family. CME…
Describe your music, and what separates you from other artist? Mixture of street and mainstream. Gangster rap meets soul, lol. What separates me? Id say, I’m not a follower so Im the type to usually start a trend rather than follow it. If everyone’s wearing white, I’m the type to put on black and shake things up a bit.
You have a mixtape coming out 12/15 called “While you were sleeping” by DJ B Easy…the title speaks volume I know the whole tape is fire..What’s the concept of it all ? Basically I feel like for those who’ve been sleeping on me, my team, the homie B Easy the DJ, Fly America, or anybody who feels they’ve been overlooked in a sense…This is their soundtrack. While the masses were sleeping on it, we’ve been putting in work; Chasing money everyday.
Who have you collaborated with? Who would you like to collab with in the near future? I’ve collaborated with a lot of artist from my city. I’ve collaborated with the Brooklyn Bully Mob,the homie from Brooklyn Capo CMDI, Juno (New York),AR Quest (formerly of Fetti Gang),Frenchie (1017/BSM),Tray Kapone (California),and Trepounds (Fetti Gang),B Easy the DJ, Dj Wrekk One,Greg Inman (Gutta), and Michael Pratt (Doeboy on da track). Shout out to Bo Deal (BSM)too, he hosted the first compilation (Tryna Get A Mill-Now available on Datpiff.com) I put together myself in 2013. I’d like to work with whoever is as motivated as I am, but industry wise I’d say Wiz Khalifa, Tierra Thomas, Quincy Jones, Chris Brown, 50 cent, Daz Dillinger, Jacob Whiteside, Waka, and Gucci.
How do you think you have grown as an artist?I‘ve expanded what I talk about. I believe I improve with each year, so I’m excited to see what my brain comes up with for 2016.
So many artist these days have a materialistic meaning of success. What’s your definition of success?Stability. Being able to leave a legacy. Being a boss of a company that is a success. Creating a dynasty. Something my kids can have long after I’m gone.
Any Final words you’d like to say to all the aspiring rap artist around the world ? Go get that “While you were sleeping,” on December 15,2015 and soak that up. (starts laughing) But um, keep your eyes on the goal, stay focused, and don’t let someone telling you No stop you from pursuing your dreams. You have to experience pain in order to appreciate the good. Success is the best revenge.
