As part of our ongoing “Rap’s New Generation” series, today we sat down with the upcoming underground artist Young Fatboy from Jacksonville 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, Young Fatboy! Let’s go back to the beginning of your career. How did you decide to become an artist?

Young Fatboy: Well when I was 16 maybe 17 I started recording writing music. I always love music since a child I had a ear for it. I was in incarceration at 18 I started writing allot of music I fell in love with my raspy voice so when I got out and just went full throttle dropping mixtape back to back I had put rap down for bout 3 years now I feel like I'm ready this is my moment and time

Umm don't never stop keep pushing authentic music allot of folks tell me my voice can not be imitated so I keep that advice and compliment with me at all times

I have had free concerts before I got incarcerated and after but not in 2018 but I just signed up with afton shows so it will not be long

Best punchline you ever wrote?

"Non religious but when I speak it's coming from the higher man".. "my spirit something serious I can turn to another man"

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

Yeah I released 2 mixtape both on
"2 years later fresh out of prison cell"

Right now I been writing allot of music during free time I have so much music I'm actually stuck but I think I just mostly wanna keep putting out music so I might drop albums back to back and more mixtape ok but I'm album ready with the music I create

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

No I would never sign a record deal I'm go be the new master p I want to make my own money I would never cut myself short
