Krayzie Bone Media Embraces New Affiliate Yak Boy Fresh

Bone thugs-n-harmony support Midwest affiliate Yak Boy Fresh with tour, recording opportunities.

Krayzie Bone was introduced to St. Louis native Yak Boy Fresh earlier this year and have since co-signed the young rapper.

Recently signing with Roger “Cutthroat” Caldwell and The Outfit Music Group, Yak Boy has been on tour with Bone for their anniversary run and is slated to continue to open for them for their world tour beginning in September.

In a recent interview with STL Today, Yak Boy referred to himself as an "entertainer" and not just another rapper. 

“I’m an entertainer," he said. "This is what I do. That’s why I was put on this earth. I’ll also say I’m an artist.” Also during the interview Yak Boy reveals he made a song with Krayzie Bone called “Scraping the Sky,” which is slated to be on his next album Welcome to My Rehab.

Yak Boy Fresh released his latest video "Shut It Down" in late February.

    Cutthroat? You mean Roger? What happened to the old YAK everyone I see repping the shit now is some suckas

  • dstar

    Yak and Cut are two of the hardest working individuals I have met in the music industry. Combined, their work ethic and drive is unstoppable. Yak's stage show is unbelievably entertaining. One thing you can count on is no matter the crowd every body in the building is gonna know who Yak Boy Fresh and The Outfit Music Group is by the end of the show. He don't really boast about it, but you already know. He just does it and everyone else talk about it. A very talented entertainer and artist with great leadership and a well organized, loyal and dedicated team. make it happen. -d

    Is this what St. Louis has to offer? Nothing special Just another white boy that can rap

  • Jaime

    I understand everyone's right to their opinion by why all the hate? Show him some damn credit for busting his ass to follow his dreams and doing pretty damn good for himself!! His music may not be for you but it's entertaining and catching everyone's attention .. So go find something that does interest you . Save your energy for his thank you speech at the next award ceremony ..

      lol everyone leaving these lil gay azz comments supporting this clown were almost surely written by this faggot himself or someone on his team

    • Jaime

      It's seems like hate,especially with the race card being pulled ..that shits just sad .. I'm not trying to debate or argue with anyone, I just see a lot of envy turning these people towards hate.

    • Anonymous

      C'mon son ain't nobody here hating niggas is just trolling Most of these people ain't never heard of dude so is it really hating? Nah they just making fun of him

  • Anonymous

    another white rapper... im not gonna lie I didn't listen to any of this dudes music, so ill just ask does he sound like eminem or macklemore? most white rappers make me hate hip hop. hopefully this isn't another homo, emo, cornball who raps about how hard it is being a white boy in America.

  • LA

    Another example of an over hyped artist with no real talent getting spotlighted. SMH. Yeah I actually took the time to listen to most of his songs before commenting.. Now here's where it gets ugly. This guy has NO real vocal/lyrical talent. Not hating on the dude, I can see his drive, motivation, etc.. but I gotta stay honest with myself; ANYBODY CAN RHYME and with heavy production from big names like nelly, bone thugs and twista OF COURSE his music is going to sound at the very least DECENT. What is plain for me to see, that most of you reading aren't realizing since you don't know the music industry game like I do, is A: Anyone showing interest in this guy and his music right now is most likely only out to make a quick buck off his 15 minutes of fame and B: His music really doesn't have a legitimate following.. (besides locals who ride his dick in the off chance that he does make a one-hit-wonder, get some cash and make a decent life for himself so that they can come begging with their hands out like he owes them something) Do the math, read in-between the lines. Lets keep it real here. His music shouldn't even be classified as hip-hop/rap. It's pop. And with a voice like that, good luck making it in the pop industry. Respect. Respect yourself. Don't let these industry fucks run you through the cheese grater. Props for making it on hiphopDX. Too bad real rap/hip-hop went underground years ago. This mainstream rap scene is a joke.

    Yak is original in his music and personality on stage. It's no wonder Bone Thugs picked up on that. Keep putting on for the Lou baby!

    • Anonymous

      Bone Thugs haven't released good music in the last 10 years. They have made classic albums, but all their new music has sucked hard. The latest album also sucked hard.

  • Lauren

    This dude is dope! Dont judge until you actually check out his game.

  • Tony-Tone

    This dude is the real deal, his shows are on point with live musicians . His passion for this music comes thru in his songs and any real fan of music who lives thru music like myself can pick that up when you hear him. No one can talk about anything until they see or hear it for them self. All I gotta say is he needs new haters cuz the old ones are starting to like him now! So keep on with the hate! Just getting more fans ! #noco it's a lifestyle it's a movement. Get used to it! Coming to your city soon! Check out his song "juiced up" out on spotify and ITunes . Also check out the video below "Shut it Down" video (Copy and paste link) http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=IVmTbTDyuUs

  • Bob-O

    When I first heard about this dude I thought he was just another kid tryin to become a rapper. Then I went on YouTube and checked him out. Immediately became fan! Dude got talent and his music is catchy. I need to find out how to get his songs jammin in my truck. He didn't appear to be the same cookie cutter wanna be rapper. He's gonna be a star sooner than later and I'd bet on that! Keep it up lil homie.. I'm rockin wit you. Any nay sayers just need to go on YouTube and watch his videos.. Bet you'll watch em more than once!

  • Melissa

  • STL local

    I live in st Louis and I have def heard of this dude. he performs everywhere and at all the best shows. he is pretty talented and puts on a great show in my opinion. i think he is the best in st louis, instead of all these regular rappers you see every single day. I actually just saw him on the news the other night, music critic Kevin Johnson called him one to watch out for in st Louis and one if his favorite artist. props to him for getting on this website cause that's pretty huge no matter how bad of comment you want to make.

  • Jennifer S.

    I read some of the comments and i must say that it's real sad some people wanna talk down on this young man. Yes i just heard of him at a Krayzie Bone concert, but his music is not that bad at all. People saying just another white boy! Really? This white boy is better then some other guys i know who are black and white so please don't bring up race. Respect the fact that he's trying! Have you seen his tour bus? How many of you haters have one?? Exactly!! Instead of talking down on this artist give him a chance...You may come to like him in the end and if you don't then keep moving and let me know when you get signed...Ijs

  • Sponsor

    Meanwhile, no one in St. Louis has ever heard of this clown. He's doing no shows. Getting no recognition among local MCs, no radio spins, no mentions by local DJs.... smh.

    • northboy

    Wow and black people complain about racism, I'm not saying this guy is good or bad , to be honest I've never heard him, don't hear anyone complaining about "another cornball black guy from the hood with another struggle story" , if he's talented he's talented, bone thugs are reputable enough to respect their decision and check him out with an open mind, Mgk, Yelawolf, eminem are some of the best artists today white or black, don't complain about white boys when you have the Rick Ross's, French Montana's, young thugs, rich homie quans leading the charts you fucking racist fucks, hip hop does have some of the dumbest fans.

    • Anonymous

      Wow your absolutely retarded , you lost me at "French , thugger, quan are pretty fucking bad but..."^^

    • lol

      French, Thugger, and Quan are pretty fucking bad but Yelawolf and MGK are so much worse. Either way quit complaining and stop acting like you actually have the right to be offended.

  • white man

    He will be the next Eminem !!!!

    • Redmann

      Never ever disrespect a seriously talented artist like that. Em's worst song ever > Yak the fart's best work ever. I'm not saying he has no skills, but really - far from the Eminem league.

  • I remember

    does anyone remember when you actually had to have talent to be put on? when you actually had to be part of the culture and couldn't just do another fake appropriation based on what you see on the internet and TV? you actually had to live in the city and cypher and build with the community of hip hop kids? Another cornball white boy from the suburbs with a terrible voice, an awful cornball hook, and one of the worst pop hooks by a chubby white girl I've ever heard. I'm not sure which is more pathetic, the pre-written corporate sponsored rap battle scene which has spread all over the country or I have a the internet, i own a computer, I'm a corny insecure white boy from Iowa or some white bred suburb in the middle of nowhere, and I"m going to start rapping now cause all of a sudden i have "access" thanks to the internet. I'm so incredibly sick of this trend. painfully corny white boys who have no clue.

    • fsdf

      lol so only white dudes in hip hop can be corny? lmao, what about young thug, fat trel? the basic function of hip hop is expression through graffiti, b-boy, rapping w/e. so these dudes just expressin themselves. it would be an issue if this kid was fronting like he was from rough area or anythin but he's not. the real people who know their hip hop history know racism and race was never meant to factor into it, you judge a man by his music. smh @ this fuckin lame frontin like he knows his shit ya racist dick

    • can ten man

      So true!!!!!

  • Anonymosu

    breaking a white boy in aint like an std. just cuz you broke somebody dont mean you can pass it on

  • Anonymosu

    bone thugs dont have the ability to co sign nobody. even em cant co sign another whiteboy. yelawolf failed. only dre has that ability, after he breaks them in of course

  • lol
