The Break Presents: Young Scolla

Name: Young Scolla
Reppin’: Detroit, MI
My style and/or skills have been compared to: Many greats, so the goal is to work my way into that company.
I started rapping: In elementary school. I found out I had knack for rhyme after I was assigned a project in 4th grade where I had to write a song about the Potawatomi Indians.
My standout records and/or moments have been: Songs like “Stare,” “Round & Round,” & “Decisions” were really big for my career. I think performing on the URB Mag’s Next 100 stage at the 2010 SXSW festival was a major moment for me. In ’09 my team and I set it as a goal to perform at SXSW and the very next year we were there. Showed us how far hard work can take you. Its a tie between that moment and the day I finished recording my debut album Seconds Away, which drops August 30th.
I’m gonna change the game by: Remaining genuine and relatable. I continue to grow as an artist and as a person and I don’t see myself stopping anytime soon so as my fans continue to grow with me, the possibilities are endless.
I’d Like to Work With: The list is massive….so I’ll just say anyone that has been or in the process of pushing the envelope of greatness.
My goal in hip-hop is: Impact my generation and ultimately the world. I want to deliver not only music but a brand that people can enjoy and that will inspire them. Timeless is what I’m going for. Hip-Hop is not a bastard music like those outside the culture look at it to be and I want to help show that.
I’m gonna be the next: Great and the first Scolla.
