YbZoGo makin noise from Sacramento California

One of this week’s featured hip hop artists is YbZoGo. This guy has a unique sound that could garner a lot of attention nationwide and also over seas. If you are familiar with American rap artists then YbZoGo has a definite West Coast accent that distinguishes him from artists from the south and the east coast which would make the market more diverse with regional sounds reminiscent of the “golden age” of Hiphop.

The name of the featured song is “5. 3, 4, 5”,  (Feat. Local$tar & Kumandae)

YbZoGo’s Bio:

It was California’s Purple Valley that Rap/Hip-Hop artist YbZo Goldenchild has carefully aged his craft over the last decades. His roots originated near the scenic landscapes and vineyards of “ Northern Golden Purple Country.” However, his creative growth was always tested by tribulation. He’s had to overcome many difficult “growing seasons” to produce Some of his beautifulest Slaps of hip hop and finely aged Creamery.

YbZoGo, was born in Stockton, California… yet was raised in Sacramento. The third of eleven siblings, YbZo was the seed like DMX that didn’t need much to Succeed . “I was blessed , raised by both my Father and Mother ,” YbZoGo reminisces.” I was taught to move in Silence to be a Black King, Prince to always rise above the abject poverty that surrounded him.

As a child, YbZoGo grew up on , around notoriously crime- ridden blocks ,” and it challenged him. “I was taught to move in silence among violence,” he explains. While he may have remained somewhat silent for years, YbZoGo is now making noise in the form of Slaps , Blaps and Rhymes , Clothing Apparel and Short Films.

Since elementary school, YbZoGo has been mesmerized by the rap game music legends , that he now understands was a part of his education and growth with my own music , He elaborates, “ everyday listening to Tupac., Nas ,DMX – E40 , Too $hort They inspired the hustle blueprints I still do to this day ! My love of music made me listen to anything “I must admit,” adds YbZoGo, “ I was inspired by ILL individuals – Chef Raekwons, Ghostface , Scarface, Ice Cube , Ice T, Snoop Doggy Etc.

Musical Career

YbZoGo’s musical career began in the Late 90’s , when he worked with C.C.H. (Capital City Hustlers) on ” High Speed “, and again in 2000 on the album ( We Bubblin ). It was YbZoGo’s first real trip into the Local music scenes of northern /central/southern California . He also worked with C.C.H. on 4u2Trip’s ( Paper Route ) CD – entitled “100’s & 50’s.”
Filthy Silk was the first Cd – YbZoGo created with Sh.e partners , Known as ” Silk ” on this project , We hustle this CD From California to Seattle, Arizona and Texas as we progress the project start falling apart , and this is How the Name the Goldenchild came about . . YbZoGo explains
A , “GOldenChild meant that I was the last one left from my generation and style.” As GOldenChild, I released CD, ( The Gift ) with longtime friend E-moe of pay style music .
A 2nd CD released with UmojaEntertainment ( He’s No Item ) this Cd was created with talented local Sacramento and Bay Area artist .

I’m told YbZoGo, that time has passed for me – that is too late – I’m always Like – I Love this Music , you couldn’t , wouldn’t understand . “I’m the last artist out of the whole crew of talented MCs that stayed true to the game , always mack-in and stack-in , politicking , CCH hustling .” explains YbZoGo.

In 2012, YbZoGo released his first solo CD called ( Late Bloom$). The project was the result of blessings from a chosen few artist – such as Local$tar, beat-maker/rapper from Alaska , Kumandae R&B singer , R&B diva Jimmie Reign , Tre Macc , Flossalini , Raw SyL , Dank funk , Doug Smith , and the Very Talented Infinity of StarCity records .

In 2014, YbZoGo formed his own record label, SilentHandzEntertainment and is continuing to produce new albums/cds. What began over a decade ago from a tiny seed of potential within YbZo has now become an actual hybrid ready for harvest within YbZoGo. It stems out of a lifetime of struggle, it flourishes from hardened soil into something from nothing. Sh.E working – over time, YbZoGo has produced many different candies and purple melodies for the ears and brain waves to soak – Blessings to Life To all walks of Life
Sh.E we all Around the World
Bless the Movement

Jayali9 combines hiphop tracks with arabic

The mainstream media has already capitalized from African Americans and Hispanics with the exploitation of their culture and music. Now in the 21st century, America has become tolerant of people from all walks of faith. I think the next hottest style of hip hop music will come from the arabic language and other semitic languages like Tigrinya, Af-Somali and Ki-Swahili. Jayali9 has a fresh sound that I feel can be marketable in segments of the American, U.K. and Caribbean markets.

Jayali9 has several more songs that are noteworthy of listening to and international music fans will not be disappointed.

Cameroon Celebrates Youth Day, Young People Question Future of their Country

Cameroon Celebrates Youth Day

flag-map_of_cameroon-svgAs Cameroon’s young people prepare to observe national youth day on Thursday, February 11, 2016 many are questioning their future. As the week long activities take place, youths are complaining that rampart unemployment and economic insecurity are causing many of them to lose confidence in their own country. More than 30,000 graduate with university degrees each year but fewer than 10 percent are gainfully employed.

 

The president of Cameroon’s national youth council, Jean Mark Afesi Mbafor, said the main problem is that Cameroon’s educational system, created before independence to train civil servants, is outdated.

“We are told in China today, calculators are coming out from (being made by) secondary schools in China. We can do that in Cameroon and contribute our own part in the development of Cameroon.” And the head of state has talked a lot about technological development, and we know we can not talk about emergence without industrial and technological development,” said Mbafor.

Cameroonian youth march in the 50th edition of National Youth Day 2016. The theme was:“Youth citizenship and the fight against insecurity for the Advent of an Emerging Cameroon.”

The director general of Cameroon’s National Employment Fund, Moute a Bidias, said that besides giving loans to youths to start businesses or open farms and breed livestock, they have negotiated with Cameroon enterprises to recruit youths and train them in various professional fields. He said such companies will get a tax break.

Bidias also stated, “We have about 100,000 enterprises in Cameroon. If half of those enterprises, that means 50,000 enterprises, recruit just one young person, we will be able to put 50,000 young people to work in enterprises this year. Imagine if some of the enterprises recruit two or three young people.”

According to Dr. Jude Fokwang,  decades later after the original installment in 1966, the youth in “Youth Day” is little more than an empty symbol of disillusionment and uncertainty as growing numbers of young people confront the stark reality that old predictabilities have disappeared and few or no economic opportunities would be available for them within the borders of the imagined post colony – Cameroon.

According to the World Factbook, the unemployment rate in Cameroon is 30 percent. Cameroon’s National Institute of Statistics reports a 70 percent underemployment rate. Cameroon’s minister of youth affairs and civic education Mounouna Foutsou say such figures are making Cameroonian youths vulnerable to terrorist groups.
