Juggling University and a budding rap career is just a normal day in the life of KJ Da Youngstar.
You are currently attending Sam Houston State University, where your EP single “House Party” is a big hit. What are you taking in University?
I’m currently majoring in Industrial technology with a minor in electronics. I got my Associates in Business too.
How do you balance your academic life with your passion for music?
Ain’t gone lie thIs shit difficult hahaha, but I love it. I maintain a 3.0 and put on a great show so I’d just say I’m built for this.
Do both of these aspects of your life contribute to each other or overlap?
Personally i can say yea, I feel like what i learn I can just expand on and grow.
What first got you interested in making your own Hip-Hop?
It was 2005-2006 I used to record for my partner Wa Wa, but I never recorded myself seriously until about 2008 when my lil homie Lil P had me collab with him.
Who arranges your beats, does your producing?
Lil P my producer, but I work with VybeBeats and 5Star Productions.
What are the stages in your writing process?
I typically get me some Juicy J papers or Raws twist up then freestyle do several takes but I no longer write.
Which artists do you most admire or look up to?
Drake, he literally controls the market and put on a hell of a show for Texas.
Today’s music is about collaborations, what rapper or producer would you love to work with on a project?
Artist would be the Big Homie Berne or Boosie, he could give me some real ass game!
