#MixtapeAddict | Interview w/ @YoungJahcee

Young Jahcee

After releasing the dope video for « GamGino« , the homie Young Jahcee took some time to answer the world famous « Mixtape Addict » questions ! Let’s take a flight to Orlando in Florida… Check out the interview below :

  • Who is your all time favorite DJ ? 

DJ Premier is my favorite disc jockey of all-time. 

DJ Premier

  • How did you come up with the concept for the « GamGino » video ?

I’m a huge fan of Atlanta FX. Binge watching that show along with me being a fan of Childish Gambino‘s Royalty Mixtape caused me to create this version/visual/song of GamGino. Though I was raised in Orlando, I’m often in Atlanta. Geography wise, Georgia is literally right above Florida.  Since ATL is where Childish Gambino is from, I thought it would be cool to make a song in hommage to the two cities, two worlds (Atlanta FX and West Orlando as I know it), and two people (myself and Gambino).  There’s even an episode of Atlanta FX where they talk about « Florida Man, » which I find to be hilarious. In real life, most people know me as Gino, which sounds like Bino. I fused the name Gambino and fused Gino to make GamGino.  I’ve had this idea for GamGino since like 2014 but it changed tremendously from the original idea over the years.

  • Your visuals are dope and we know that you are also a filmmaker. What influenced you to pursue this path in addition to music ?

I see rap music as storytelling upon instrumentation. So in order to stay sharp on my storytelling when I’m not making music, I decided to put my efforts into filmmaking. I’m most happy when I’m being creative and filmmaking provides me that safe haven. 

  • What’s the movie that influenced you the most ?

Coming to America and Do The Right Thing are two films that have influenced me a lot. 

  • Where do you see the future of hip-hop in 5 years ?

I think more artists will start studying the great rappers from the 90s for inspiration and a new renaissance will begin. 

  • If you could stay a weekend in the studio to get a EP done with two producers, who would you pick ?

I would choose Trackmasters and Pharrell

  • What’s next for you ? What are you working on right now ?

I am working on my debut EP and finishing my last semester of grad school (filmmaking)

  • Any words of advice for the young upcoming artists and filmmakers ?

Be yourself no matter what anybody says about you. Be your biggest fan. Your legacy is at stake. Make the best of what you have, forever. Enjoy what you do!
