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)
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.

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.
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.”
