YukMouth provide my first taste in the Hip Hop lifestyle. Being able to hop out a convertible Two seater Mercedes benz to a Lexus truck, To a fabulous home in a ritzy neighborhood in Los Angeles, to shopping up and down Melrose ave an Beverly Hills and treated like royalty. All due to the fact that he at the time was involved with my cousin. Being young, fresh out of high school, i thought I was so ON, however he did show us that those material items did not come easy, I witnessed him work very hard on his musical projects and run an independent business. So here to you YukMouth a pioneer in west coast hip hop.
