Right Back At It (Featuring Big Crim)
An emcee, dancer, performance artist, and videographer from California. Although her music genres range from Hip Hop/Rap, R…&B, Pop, and EDM, she has an affinity for West Coast and Bay Area “hyphy” sounds. She is the sole owner of her company, No Label Entertainment, through which she is able to market her music, create and sell merchandise, as well as provide videography services for herself and other artists.
YDP spent most of her adolescence in Richmond, on the eastern side of the Bay Area, but spent summers in the Watts neighborhood in Los Angeles. Consequently, YDP was exposed to Gangsta Rap (2Pac, N.W.A., Snoop Dogg) and Hyphy music (Too Short, E-40, Keak da Sneak) from a young age and her love for Hip Hop music and culture grew just as she did. YDP began writing raps at age 13, as she was greatly affected by the incarceration of her older brother. She credits him as the original YDP. Dealing with many issues that black youth face such as poverty, gang violence, and domestic turmoil, music was YDP’s way of expressing her frustrations and emotions.
YDP’s debut EP “Wild Wild West” is a tribute to the California lifestyle, featuring elements of Gangsta Rap, Hyphy, and Pop. The EP’s single, “New Cocktails” is a crowd favorite at live performances and boasts more than 16,000 plays on her Soundcloud. “My Music is made for everybody. If you want to party, I have that. If you’re missing family or celebrating family and friends, I relay that in my music,” said YDP. YDP’s music is available on most music platforms including Spotify, Soundcloud, Datpiff, and Bandcamp. She was one of the opening acts during The Beat Cellar Tour (Summer 2016), with shows in California, Las Vegas, and Arizona. During Summer 2015, she was a semi-finalist in the Team Backpack Mission Underground online auditions and participated in the Live Cypher Draft in Los Angeles. She has been interviewed on Spotify, “A Vibe Called Quest” (90.5 FM KSJS), Da MaddHouze, and WBKE Sin City Vegas Radio. She has also been featured on the “On-The-Daily” Hip Hop blog, hosted by Hawaii-based Rapper & Blogger Jehzan Exclusive.
Just like her name states, YDP remains dedicated to her craft. She is always trying to learn more whether she is writing lyrics, editing videos, or networking, all while running her own business. She seeks to have her story told through her music, with hopes to reach a mainstream audience. Regardless, she remains humble and open to opportunity. Her recent singles “Work” (featuring Joe Kool) and “Smokers Session” (Prod. by Blunted Beatz) are also available. Lastly, YDP is a student of Expressions College for the Digital Arts and was an extra in Kendrick Lamar’s music video for “Alright” (2015).
Scorpion the Dance EmCee:
From Fairfield, California, Scorpion is currently pursuing his career as a professional dancer, poet, musician and motivational speaker. He started dancing at the age of 15, where Turf dance legend Sky Walker was his first inspiration via You Tube videos. After studying the greats and attempting this genre of dance, Scorpion molded himself into this creative creature where he received the name Scorpion because of his signature movements in Contortionism. Scorpion is also gifted in gliding, waving, bone breaking, and turf dancing. From performing and competing locally to being blessed enough to travel doing what he loves, Scorpion was able to get air time on 2010’s season of So You Think You Can Dance and even had a large segment about him. From this exposure, he was able to perform on The George Lopez Tonight show where Lopez nick-named him the “Human Insect”. Scorpion started pursuing poetry and music on a more serious level in 2011, where he released a small music project called “The Orchestra”. He strives to gain his stripes in the music scene as an artist, not a rapper. His style of music isn’t common for the community he lives in, so Scorpion constantly battles wanting to stay true to his style of music, over doing what’s considered hot , a fad or mainstream.
In 2014, Scorpion had the opportunity to perform his music several times and even opened for the legends Obie Trice and Freeway. Scorpion released his first EP “The Black Poet” in 2015 followed by his 2nd, “Freak Of Nature”. His networking and modesty have guided him to a humbling local success and he is honored to be able to do what he loves. He recently completed a 2 week California tour in July 2016 as a special guest on The Beat Cellar Tour and also a 3 week tour run (28 cities in 31 days) across 14 states spanning from the West Coast, Pacific North West and Mid west cities. With so many stories to tell, Scorpion’s music, poetry and dance all speak for him. But when necessary, he will speak publically and do his best to motivate and inspire young and thriving artists to stay out of trouble and pursue their dreams like he did.
