November 29, 2019
– Youngsta, I gotta admit,
I’m kinda disappointed, man. – Why man? – Because you came here, and
I know what you do on IG. You love flickin’ the cash. I thought you woulda blessed us with some racks or something. – Man, it’s crazy. Look, it’s so crazy,
I woke up– I had to be on time today. So when I have to be on time, I couldn’t think of the code to the safe. My manager was already in the car. And I didn’t wanna call him back up. So I just went on, went downstairs, got in the car, and I came here and did the interview with you. – Ah man! Maybe next time.
– [Youngsta] Next time. – This summer you became
an ordained minister. – Yeah. – How did that happen? – I think there need
be more love out there. Like, I wanna see more love get spread. And I know I’m able to
like, pay for a wedding, so I’m like, I’mma be the one
to go get my license for it. Pay for the wedding out my pocket. – Wow! – Help you get a ring
and everything, maybe. – I heard it’s a number
too, people could call if they wanna get married? – Yeah, 8-7-7-REV-BLAC. 8-7-7-R-E-V-B-L-A-C. Make sure y’all tune in, call that number if you wanna get married. I’mma pay for it.
– Wow! – It need to be real love. Don’t call playin’.
– That’s fair enough. Now let’s talk about the album some more. ‘Church On Sunday’, that title, like what’s the significance behind it? Did you grow up in the church? – Nah, not really. I did and I didn’t. I did when I was, when I was super little. My grand daddy, he was preacher. – Oh, okay. – But, the album came about like with me going though things. Like, I was fightin’ a case or whatever. Like they were tryna offer me 20 years. So I ended up beatin’ it. I dropped the song
called “Court Tomorrow.” Then I ended up beatin’ the case. So, you know, that’s how God work. But, this (bleep) just crazy bruh, I was going through so much. And I knew like, in the beginning when I came in the door of
music, I was doing like, soulful music, something you can feel. Then I jumped into doing hits. Making hits, so I just stared
making hits back to back. So I started chasin’ the hit. You know how you chasin’ the dollar. – Yeah, right. – Then, I feel like with me going through the situation with
court, beatin’ the cases. I was like, “Man, I wanna
talk about something.” So on my new album, I’m
actually talkin’ about things. I got a lot a features on there. I got T.I.
– [B.Dot] Right. – [Youngsta] I got Chris Brown, Ty Dollar $ign, Moneybagg and
Gotti on the same song as me. – [B.Dot] Oh wow! – [Youngsta] Our first song together. DaBaby.
– [B.Dot] Right. – [Youngsta] I got City
Girls, JT and Miami. I got a lot of (bleep), I got
a lot a people on this joint. – That’s awesome, man! ‘Cause the first album, ‘223,’ I felt like it was one of the most
underrated albums of last year. – Then you gone really love this one. See like on ‘223,’ I hate to
let you down and tell you this. But I kinda did what they wanted me to do. – [B.Dot] Hm! – Now this one right here,
I’m doing what I wanna do. – You were gone a lot this year, ’cause you had your
first international tour. – Man, it was lit, it was amazing! It shocked me, ’cause I
ain’t know I could go so far and that my reach was that
far, where I can go somewhere in a whole ‘nother part
of the world and sell out. – What were the concerts like overseas, versus being here in America? – What I like about
London, when I did London. The people that came to that show, it wasn’t just about
like jumping up and down just because I’m doing hype music. – [B.Dot] Right. – The people that didn’t know me, they kinda was like, “I
don’t know this song.” They knew every song, but it’s like some songs they just don’t know. So they stood there lookin’ like. Tryna really peep, like okay. So they were quiet the whole time. I got through rappin’.
(Youngsta claps his hands) You just hear claps,
and “Yeah, yeah, yeah.” Just like, I’m like, “Yeah okay.” They pay attention. – [B.Dot] Right.
– So I think it’s exciting to me, I like both sides. – So if no one has never
been to a Blac Youngsta show, what can someone expect? What’s a Blac Youngsta concert like? Super fun, no fightin’ at my concerts. If someone fight, I stop
the music, stop the beat, and I tell ’em break it, break
this (bleep) up right now. Fun, most definitely fun. Whole lot a fun, lot a laughs. I do my little dance moves and (bleep) (laughing) I just wanna smile, bruh, you know. ‘Cause your smile determines
how far you gonna go in life. And from the looks of it, I’m going far! (B.Dot laughs)
You too! – There we go! But also, I think you wanna put your life on the big screen too? You wanna put a documentary together? – Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. Since I came in, I did a documentary when I first came out
with ‘I Swear to God.’ But it wasn’t like this one is. This special to me, first of all, because it took me maybe two and a half, three years to make. – Hm.
– It’s not a just overnight documentary.
– Okay. – I think with this one, I’m able to show, like how much I love my family. How much the people love me. What type a fans do I have? What I’m capable of doing? How far you think I’m gonna go? – Right.
– Some people might look a me, and be like, “He ain’t
gonna last another year.” They said that what? Three years ago. I’m four years in now. So looking at the
documentary kinda let you know like, “Ah yeah, he gone
be here for a long time!”
