ARTIST ON THE WATCH: YUNG SPOODY
This is Yung Spoody.
Yung Spoody, tell us more about how you got into music?
I was born in New Orleans, LA, definitely a Charity Baby.
I was raised in Plaquemines Parish.
I started writing music when I was 11 yrs old and never stopped since.
At the age of 15, I was forced to be a man.
I was in a home by myself and had to survive alone.
Music was definitely an escape route to a place of comfort.
When I was homeless, I wrote songs.
When I was going through struggles and pain, I wrote songs.
When I was frustrated, I wrote songs.
My life has definitely been the ultimate success story behind my music.
I thank God for every single ounce of pain and disappointment I encountered in life.
It has always fueled the passion behind my music!
It’s the reason why I won’t stop until the world hears my story.
I want to help people.
I want to motivate people to be great.
I want the world to know we all deserve to be Kings and Queens regardless of what we go through.
We all have a specific purpose that could elevate our lives to greater heights!
What would you say is the most difficult aspect about launching a career in music?
The most difficult thing so far in my music career is being able to extend the content to its furthest potential.
Coming up with the music is very easy, it’s second nature!
The challenge is getting it to the ears of the larger audience.
God has created a platform for me now and I am extremely joyful!
Every song I record is real facts to my life, and even though it’s been a “Long Road” change is definitely coming!
I have been blessed with the privilege to work with Future Kings like Kano who was recently featured as well.
He brings the visual to every message I create and I thank God for that!
“Long Road” is my first song ever to make the radio and it’s playing in four states now and still expanding!
