DRIP DROPS of HIP-HOP from CHATTANOOGA
When did you start as a rapper and where did your artist name come from?
I started rapping seriously in 2005/ I got the name YoungSauce 'Da God' because I use to do this dance where it looks like i'm stirring up something so my friends started calling me sauce and I just came up wit the rest.
Talk a bit about your new single, "Ride Wit Me."
"Ride Wit Me" was a record I found on youtube and instantly I got inspired when I heard the melody and hard hitting bass/I was in the car when I heard it so I came up with ride wit me and its basically a chant/vibe kinda of record I wanted to give it that throwback feel because no one is doing that right now and be a game-changer. Hot Handz is a old friend from my hometown of Columbus, Ohio and we both relocated to Charlotte,NC and I thought he would be a great fit on the record.
What does your creative process look like?
Creative process is pretty simple. I like to surf the net for beats and listen to them while I'm in the car driving and if it hits me I instantly create it in my head and piece it all together.
Who do you make music for?
I make music for me and people who love hip hop and really have a passion for music.
What's the hip-hop scene like in your city?
Currently I just recently relocated to Atlanta from Charlotte, NC but Charlotte music scene is growing rapidly due to the success of Da Baby. So the rap game has its eye on whole Carolinas now and the support of local talent is rising fast.
What should we be on the lookout for in 2019 from YoungSauce Da God?
Be on the lookout for more music, tour dates, etc.
What's been the highlight of your career so far?
Ride wit me being received so well getting on the radio and just the love and support of the fans has been dope and I'm very thankful and blessed.
What producers or artists would you like to work with in the coming year?
No one in particular. Just anyone who is dope and has a great vibe and makes lit music and who is dedicated.
Are you familiar with the hip-hop scene here in Chattanooga? If so, are there any artists you're rocking with here?
Not yet but I'm looking forward to coming to the city and meeting some artists, djs, producer, bloggers etc. (Hit him up, y'all!)
