Today we’d like to introduce you to Leroy Yarbough.
Leroy, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I started recording music after college. I had friends that did music and that inspired me to fall into it. I originally thought is join the music world as an engineer because I’m extremely fascinated by the art of it but my last year of college, I took a music class & our final was a live performance in front of the whole class & honestly I was crazy nervous before it but after that, I knew this was for me & here we are now.
Has it been a smooth road?
Not at all, I lost so many people that I thought I couldn’t live without through this road. I’ve been scammed by promoters and everything but it’s all just taught me that you can never hold anyone to a higher standard or be surprised if somethings done “out of character” we all only human a& nothing is given in this business, you gotta give product that makes them reach out to you!
Can you give our readers some background on your music?
I’m yaarb out of the west side of Compton. I am an artist most known for my versatile style of flow & creativity. My proudest moment as an artist is being able/blessed to put money in my mom’s account from my words. The thing that sets yaarb apart from others? Honestly, just me being comfortable being me, I believe.
Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
I love my city it’s filled with talent there’s so much culture in Compton it’s such a beautiful place. What I love the most about my city would probably be the “Compton Cowboys” because it always shocks people when they find out lol but you can’t have sunshine without rain my dislikes in my city are the gang wars obviously. I’ve lost too many friends growing up do to it also Compton sheriffs are the worst.
