Paving the way

Featured artist: Youngworldibi – Paving the way

As part of our ongoing “Rap’s New Generation” series, today we sat down with the upcoming underground artist Youngworldibi from Lancaster to talk about his recent music, his upcoming projects, his career advice and his overall experiences being in the music industry and he did not disappoint…

Thanks for taking the time to talk with us, Youngworldibi! Let’s go back to the beginning of your career. How did you decide to become an artist?

Youngworldibi: It was always something I was good at since a teen, now after being locked up it was only right to chase the dream. This been a long time in the making, and just getting started.

No matter how hard it gets and how down you get about your music not making much progress just keep on going and growing as an artist. If you have the talent eventually people are going to hear you and start listening to your music. Just continue to create, grow as an artist, and promote your music!


What about concerts? Do you play live?

Have not yet performed. When the time comes I will be ready.

Best punchline you ever wrote?

I told y’all this wasn’t a game. There’s no stopping now. This music is gonna keep on coming until I get my foot in the door.


What are you currently working on? Did you release something in the past?

I have an official EP out not “The Hunger For More” I also have a brand new Single “Rock Boy” being released March 19. You can press it to be notified and able to listen to it the moment it’s released by going to this site :
Also have another Single “Mountain Top” being released May 19. Also more music I haven’t yet decided on when to release and currently working on even more music. As I said before, much more to come.

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

It all depends on what they’re offering, but yes if the terms are good then I definately would. The pros are they have a lot of money to spend, really get your music out there to the mass, get you airtime and book big shows, have deep connections in the music industry, and so much more. Some of the cons are you have labels that will try to get you to sign a bad deal, there’s always the chance your career will be shelved if they don’t believe in the music you recorded, you’ll most likely be locked into a multi album deal that you can’t get out once contract is signed, and things can go wrong that you can’t get out of once that contract is signed.

Any last words?

Want to give a shoutout to my city and all those that have been showing me love! Can’t do it without y’all. We all we got!

Where can people follow you to stay up-to-date?


Thank you for your time. We wish you much success in your further career.
