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

Hi Young, what is the most important factor behind your success?
The most important factor to me that’s behind my success has to be ambition. Without that i would have gave up 1000 times due to things just not going right for me but because I’ve had ambition it gave me just enough drive to keep going.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I think what sets me apart from other artists period not just in my city is that i have the ability to be different. If this was basketball i would be a well balanced player meaning i can do a little bit of everything! I’m the real MVP! Lol i got to where i am today by being a student of the game and learning to listen and pay attention before all actions. This journey was NOT easy at all but i appreciated every moment because it built and perfected me for these moments now. Some things i would love for the world to understand about me and my brands are that this comes from absolutely nothing but dedication, hard work and god! One last thing is that it’s also 1 million percent BLACK OWNED.

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.
I love my city and i know all the great spots! If y’all came to visit we most definitely would have to hit up the Highlands . The Highlands consist of a street full of different bars, clubs, and restaurants. Just park and take your pick on a great vibe. Another place i would take anybody who comes to my city is the famous Walking Bridge ! The walking bridge is a 4 mile bridge from louisville to Jeffersonville Indiana. Great time to chill and vibe. If you hungry i would have someone who visit to the famous Indis Chicken as well. Everybody knows how great Indis chicken from Louisville is just ask around lol

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I want to dedicate this shoutout to my city Louisville Ky. My city gave me just enough ups and Downs for me to want to become a star and represent the city in a bigger and major way. Thank you to the Ville !
