Still working on that hot first release.



Scarface, Erykah Badu, and Beyonce all have two aspects in common: 1.
They all are stars in the Music Industry 2. They all hail from the Lone Star
State, Texas that is. Allow me introduce Mr. YBR(Youngbillyross) as you
prepare yourself to add another name to that list. He hails from East
Texas, Longview to be exact, a part of Texas unfamiliar to most people
outside of the area. A place commonly referred to as the 903 rests
between Dallas, TX and Shreveport, LA. Mr. YBR has been influenced by
many Genres of music from variety of artists, but none more than the
greatest MC of all time, the late Tupac Shakur, The greatest guitarist of all time Prince, and what he calls "The
greatest R&B group ever" New Edition. Early in his career he was
labeled the R&B MC as a result of his love of using R&B
tracks as opposed to the more traditional tracks being used by most mc's
at the time. With a sharp tongue, quick wit, and country twang, Mr. YBR
punishes tracks with his laid back almost hypnotic delivery.
Acknowledging the lack of attention shown the East Texas area, he has
taken a more aggressive approach to Hip Hop in East Texas, "Before
Scarface put Houston on the map, before Nelly put St. Louis on the map,
before No limit and Cash Money put New Orleans on the map, nobody cared
what went on in those cities as far as Hip Hop was concerned.So Instead of
waiting on someone to say they came here and put us on the map, we're
going to do it ourselves." Not only Longview, but Tyler, Marshall,
Texarkana, Palestine, Sulphur Springs, Paris, and the surrounding areas
are ready to make their mark. With production he claims will rival the
best which features the sounds of Kaoss Beats and Legacy Music Group the sky is the limit for this budding star, so I’d advise you to jump on
the train before it leaves the station. For interview requests, touring
dates or more information on Mr. YBR, please send inquiries to or 903-215-7085
