Yalee has led and inspired a fan base through his music. He is no stranger to the streets and getting out of dire circumstances. He is unashamed of where he comes from and what brought him here. He is lighting his own path.
Moving from place to place, living in a trap house, and living in unwanted circumstances should put down a guy. But nope– Yalee took these instances as opportunities. He lit his own candle. He states in an interview that he looks up to one but himself. Yalee is into creating his own sound and resonating with his listeners. When you hear his single, you hear how proud he is. He’s saying, “Look out” and “Watch me do this.” Watch me move to LA, watch me buy my mama this car, watch me make my own path. To all those folks who didn’t see me before, see me now.
Some listeners may say, “Hey, this is giving off cocky vibes,” or “Why should I listen to someone brag.” To this, I would say, maybe shift your perspective or even acknowledge the story behind the song. Everyone is entitled to how a piece of music moves them. Yalee has inspired his fans, and they understand him. If anything, the listener should take away the message that they can move forward in the darkness. You can be proud of where you are. Yalee certainly is, so why not take steps and reflect to put yourself in that position.
His latest single and third installment of his short film “My Outside Is Different” takes you on a journey that you can feel and see once you hit play. Violence is prevalent in Yalee’s life. He shares that he has seen multiple people get shot in front of him. The very title of the song speaks to race and why groups are targeted. Yes, we look different, but we are human.
Make sure to watch Part 3 “My Outside Is Different” below and check out the other episodes of the short film available exclusively on YouTube. His music is also available on all streaming platforms and make sire to add it to you playlist.
