3 Voices: Weekend Remix has over 100,000 views, where did it originate from?
Yung G: Weekend Remix originated from a record that I had on my mixtape. I met Lady Nyke and we transformed the song into a record which will be on my album coming soon but I wrote this song based on some experience that I have had in my life because everybody got that one special person or buddy that they only hang with on the weekend so I figure why not turn my experience into a fun record that everybody can relate to.
3 Voices: (Shouts out to Lady Nyke, who also doing major things)! We know you’re a Chicago artist, but have you been to other cities to perform?
Yung G: I have not been to any other cities yet to perform but I did take a trip with Lady nyke to Atlanta just to get my feet wet but you never know all I got to say is stay tuned for the future because there are big things getting cooked up as we speak lol
