Following the release of the latest album “Free At Last” Hip-Hop Kings Interviews West-Coast Legend Yukmouth
HHK: Firstly thanks for speaking to us Yukmouth. The big news is the release of the latest album “Free At Last”. What was the inspiration for the name of the titie?
Yukmouth: Well like I say in all my interviews, “Free At Last is exactly what the title says, I’m Free At Last!” Free from Rap-A-Lot Records, and free from L.A. County Jail! On The West Coast Don album, I was locked up in L.A. County so I wrote the whole album in jail. So, that’s why it’s so much storytelling on that album because in jail that’s all you have is your story, so that’s how the album came out. On Free At Last, I was out of jail, and was able to network and make a great album. So, Free At Last is the movement!
