A lot has changed in a year for you. Your numbers are sky rocketing across the board, how does it feel to finally see some praises from your hard work?
It’s a surreal feeling to finally see this thing taking off. Before it was just me & the homies envisioning everything happen. Now ppl from all over fuck with the movement. All the long nights & sacrifices paying off & just shows to always bet on yourself you can do whatever you believe in.
Auntie House, Lifestyle and Chances seem to be your fan favorites so far. What’s your favorite record from your most recent ‘Triangle’ project?
My favorite record from my project Triangle is lifestyle. It’s like the perfect vibe to turn up & be yourself . That’s the type of effect I want to bring everytime
What’s next from Yukon?
What’s next from Yukon is a new level. You’ll see & hear more from myself . Thanks to my team we’ve been able to put a lot of things together like meetings with big companies, interview after interview . Just everything to get heard & let these folks know we got a spot in this industry. Better music for sure. Been working with different artists & producers . Everyone will see once I drop new material
Any collabs on the way or anyone you want to work with in particular?
Yeah a lot of collabs on the way & still in the works! I got this record with LouGotCash from queens, ny I feel that’s gon go crazy . I want to work with drake , future & juice wrld for sure. Like really sit in the lab & make record after record.
What do you want your fans to take from your music?
I want everyone that listen to my music to take my experiences I speak about & be better than me. Be inspired, where I came from to where I’m going . Know your worth & the world is yours
We see you picking up the controllers with a lot of people, most recently Kenneth Faried “The Manimal”. Who is better at 2k, you or Kenneth?
I’m better at 2k between me n Kenneth. He don’t ever play that shit so it’ll be a easy win for sure lol.
Tu Pac or Biggie?
2pac. I feel like he gave everything he could while he was still here . With the messages he put out through his music, interviews & how he branded himself. Opened up new lanes for us as artists. We can’t just be put in a box to do one thing.
We’ve noticed your name up on a few Times Square billboards! That’s got to be an amazing feeling to have your name up there for a few weeks recognizing your music right?
Amazing feeling for sure . I definitely didn’t to expect that to happen when it did. Confirmation that I know my purpose. I’m working harder to stay up there & be on more billboards.
Outside of music what does Yukon do for fun?
Outside of music I be hooping or streaming on Xbox . That’s fun for me . I might step out once in a while to go to Blue Flame or Follies, get some wings chop it up with my people.
If you could only go to one Atlanta food spot for the rest of the year, what spot would that be?
One spot in Atlanta I would get food from for the rest of the year is Kelz Kitchen. Everything on the menu is good as hell , never had a bad experience.
