Where are you from?

Yung Rlo is an American recording artist from Chicago, IL.

When did you start music?

I started creating music after my junior year of high school. In 2019, I released my first song ever titled “So Sick” and I’ve been just sticking to it. Since then, my passion for music led me to enroll at Musicians Institute in Los Angeles, California where I studied audio engineering, production, and music business.

How did you get into music?

While growing up, I was always surrounded by music. I definitely showed an interest in music from an early age.

What is the most challenging thing you have overcome in your life?

The most challenging thing I’ve had to overcome in my life so far would probably have to be just facing adversity like everyone else and getting through it.

Are you currently signed or independent?

I’m currently an independent artist. I’m not in a rush to sign a deal, I’m more focused on building a good catalog of music.

Who inspires you the most musically?

The one person who inspires me the most musically actually isn’t an artist. He’s an engineer that goes by the name of MixedByAli. His approach to mixing music inspires me to be a better artist. He really helped highlight the fact that music is an art and that helped me both with my creative process and postproduction process.

What do you want people to take away after listening to your music?

I feel like my music has meaning. After people listen to it, I want them to know that it’s authentic and be able to relate.

Any new music coming out soon?

Yeah, fa sure I definitely got new music dropping soon. I record music every day but as far as releasing I’m being much more patent, it’s just a matter of planning release dates ahead of time so I can drop most effectively.

What is your greatest achievement as a musician?

My greatest achievement as a musician is 100,000+ YouTube video streams.

Do you produce your own music? If not who do you work with?

I don’t produce my own beats. I work with a team of producers. However, I do mix and master each song after I’m done recording.

Who is one artist you wish you could work with?

An artist I would work with is Roddy Ricch.

Tell us about any new music you have coming out? When is coming out? What is it about?

I got new music dropping soon, I plan on releasing a single this summer. I don’t want to say too much I have a rollout coming soon.

What does a day inside your shoes look like?

First, I wake up and eat breakfast then I shower and after that it really just depends on the day.
