 “Most people have chronic depression for various reasons. Depression is a very complex issue but it’s very real and society doesn’t help in anyway. People don’t always get the help they need especially celebrities because people judge you when you seek professional help. People immediately judge you as mentally ill when you come out and say you are depressed. The same is possibly true for everyone. You are afraid to be labeled but unfortunately, depression has resulted in an epidemic of suicides. There’s an increase in suicides and suicide attempts.

THE BROKEN WOMAN: DELIBERATE MISTAKES BY BLOSSOM OBI



Its ride or die woman. If you’re with me be with me and if you aren’t, pack up. I had just gotten out of my chemotherapy, to find out all that I had known to be a lie. I could still remember the words clearly in my head ‘’If you don’t love me pretend’’.

Joseph and I met few years back, we had kicked off very easily as casual friends seeing as we had similar interests, views and ideas about a whole lot of things. That was when he started to develop strong feelings for me, I wasn’t the ‘dreamy love’ type; heck the word even scares me so much that I did not want to be moving around anyone who was coming in that line.

BEANBALL MEETS YUNG ILLI

If you're a fan of exciting conversations, interested in the most interesting,best interview and chats with your favorite Celebrities, Brand Managers,CEOs,Innovative Entrepreneurs, Powerful and Influencial Personalities... you've got to read the exciting written interviews,listens to recorded audio interviews and watches videos of every episodes of "Beanball Meets" With Ms.Bimbo Olaitan.

This episode is featuring a American based fast rising rapper Yung illi, whose single "Take Control" is gradually gaining momentum across the streets, djs playlists and clubs. We are able to get him on board.






BEANBALL MEDIA: How did you get started with your music? I read in your song press release that you're an independent artist?

YUNG ILLI: I got started with music after Tha Carter III dropped. The talent, hunger, and the album itself made me want to be a rapper. I didn't started to take music as serious as I could though. That didn't happen until about 2 years ago.


BEANBALL MEDIA: What was it like to have a successful single release without a record label?

YUNG ILLI: It feels great. The planning, the promotion, the marketing, and the time I put into trying to gain awareness for a track, takes a lot of effort. So it feels greats to gain any type of success.


BEANBALL MEDIA: When you’re writing songs do you have any typical pattern you go through?

YUNG ILLI: No I don't really have a pattern. I usually just come up with verses, put them all together, then make a song. If i have a topic for a song, I'll fix the verses for the topic if I'm off topic.


BEANBALL MEDIA: You are not based here in Nigeria but how did you get your music popping here Africa?

YUNG ILLI: Femi Lawal hit me up one day and told me about everything he did. He told me he could be me get my music out in Africa, and I trusted him with the project. Now we're here.


BEANBALL MEDIA: As a rapper do you feel your strength is more topline (lyrics & punchlines), or is it more tracks & production?

YUNG ILLI: I would say lyrics and punchlines. I draw inspiration from artist such as Lil Wayne and J. Cole, so I try to make sure my lyrics and punchlines are pretty good. 


BEANBALL MEDIA: Why do you think your song has connection? 

YUNG ILLI: I think everyday people battle with losing control of something. Some people battle addiction, some people have problems in their relationships, some people battle with being themselves or being someone else. I feel like it connects to people because we all know we need to Take Control, but at times it's hard to do so.


BEANBALL MEDIA: Many Artists say they got inspiration from smoking others from drinking, how do you got inspire and judging from your song "Take Control",  you spoke about alcohol, are you into it?

YUNG ILLI: I get inspiration from many things, but the main things are my family, and from my past. I want my family to be in a much better situation. I also get inspiration from people who believe in my music and my career.


BEANBALL MEDIA: Lastly, what's next for Yung illi, a video or new single and what's your plan invading the Africa market?

YUNG ILLI: I'm actually putting in ALOT of work right now. The first thing will be a single and a video that's dropping within the next two weeks. Then another single and video. I'll be releasing an EP called "Love is Pain and Pain is Strength" or a mixtape called "The Time is Now" at the end of July or middle of August. They're both totally different projects and won't be similar in no way. I plan to invade the African market by getting some hot singles out, gain some traction, get some shows so I can meet the fan base and go from there.


BEANBALL MEDIA: Any plan to work with African artists or touring African countries? 

YUNG ILLI: Yes, most definitely for both questions. It would be an amazing experience, that I wouldn't even assume was possible at first.  


BEANBALL MEDIA: Finally, what do you have to say to your fans?

YUNG ILLI: I just want to say, thanks for rocking with me. New music, clothing, and videos coming very soon. And, I mean ALOT.

Exclusive Interview With LH

Who is LH?
LH is a rapper the acronym stands for les homewhich is a French word meaning The Man, I do hip hop music basically and I enjoy putting out good records.

How did music begin for you?
Music for me began right from the high school days, I was in the church choir when I was growing up though, which is basically where most artistes started from, I used to  rhyme to different songs back then in the classroom, disturbing the peace whenever we had no teacher around. I had this small book that contained lyrics of different songs, I used to read it like it was a textbook (lol). Then when I get back home I will write my own songs lifting some lines out of the book of lyrics (lol), that's why I call it back then) So music for me started right from high school.

Taking a break from Nollywood: I have been doing other things because the industry is very poor right now.
