We had the good fortune of connecting with Siraaj Yung and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Siraaj, why did you decide to pursue a creative path?

I’ve always been around artistic individuals so I seen what it was like to put everything into art. My transition into pursuing art for my self was based of the fact that I was never a super vocal person I would stay to myself but music/art was my outlet of expression. Ever since I made my first song it was like whatever stress or anxiety I had at the moment was gone as soon as I wrote or recorded a song. I believe this path choose me to be honest and I continue push through and stay down.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?

I’ve learned to stay optimistic and prepared because a situation can present itself at any time so I try my best  to be ready. I also learned it takes a team to win so I been trying be around folks who have added something to my brand and who want to see me win. I believe one thing that sets me apart from other artists and their brands is I have my own terminology and creative process with my craft. Some of my proudest moments so far has I been how people reacted to my music online and shows etc.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
