Yung CAL was born Chris Radford on July 1, 1987. He is the new season that the hip hop flavor has been missing, a Complete Artist and Lyricist (C.A.L.). Equipped with street savvy and a swagger custom designed for only the hottest, CAL definitely has something to offer the young generation of Rap lovers.

Ready to make Rappers get on their game and pick up their pens. CAL started at the young age of 17 recording and writing, making a life changing decision to stop playing Football and dedicate his time to his new found love, Music. Raised in Long Beach, California he represents the streets there and everywhere else. Unlike most rappers, he speaks what is REAL. ‘What happened to Yung CAL’ volumes one and two are his mix tapes that have created a buzz in the music world and an audience ready and excited to hear more from him. Yung CAL has collaborated with many accomplished artists such as Chris Steel, Lebo, Goldie Locc, Lou Urias, and Lil Bob Gotti. He has also worked with many notified producers including, Drummerboy, T-Nut, Chris Steel and Krak Man. Yung CAL is a metaphorical genius with the ultimate package, willing to give the Music industry a fresh breath of creativity. ‘Yung CAL’s the man’, a record label’s dream and a phony rapper’s nightmare. Constantly evolving, eager for change and development, Cal has recently moved to Atlanta in search for new networking opportunities and to spread his music around in a different environment. Brace yourself for the new future in Rap, Yung CAL. Excited to meet the expectations of his fans; he is in it to win it and to make a difference. What happened to Yung CAL? He has been creating an arsenal of new music that the streets can feel. Tune into the radio, and keep your eyes open for him, Yung CAL, the long awaited musical phenomenon.

I was introduced to Cal by a friend of mine. I was definatly drawn to his persona as a artist and i can tell that he is passionate about what he does. The most important thing that i have learned is that you can't respect a artist who is not passionate about what they do/make.
His music is sumthn to listen to.
I enjoyed his traks : dirty money and Ladies Man

How does it make you feel?


I kno im pretty late to review this album but wuteva lol...its crazy cuz everyone who i talked to about this album mentioned sideaffects of depression lmao... iono, i was str8 listenin to it. I pretty much enjoyed it. Not ALL of the tracks are sad souding or w.e. Kanye took a great risk with this album. Not even "I" would want to put my emotions out there. That's just music, but i can only think of a few respected rappers that have done it. but even them didnt make a whole album about it! I loved it though, just wish it was longer. that Pinnochio track is the truth.

favorite tracks : paranoid, heartless, robocop, street lights.

Heartless Video !!

Heartless - Kanye West

Somethn' to think about..."...

"watch others. But only study the facts. No social cliches. Never be envious of wealth- only of time to think, study, invent, decide..."
-Diana Vreeland




one of my favorite quotes in the whole wide world.

I am...Sasha Fierce ?!



Just like the rest of the beyonce and destinys child albums; this one is BOMB. Beyonce is about the only POP/R&B artist that i really listen to. Disc one is ok; pretty calm, emotional, the stuff u listen to when ur man dumps you. But disc 2!... it is Sasha FIERCE. You kno, the stuff u listen to when your over your ex and you notice your a fierce and beautiful lady that knows she can have WHATEVER man she wants and is caple to do WHATEVER the hell she wants. As you can tell i prefer disc dos. If you know me, you know why =)...


my faveorite tracks:
1.Broken Hearted Girl
2.rADIO
3.Video phone
4. Scared and lonley
5. Hello

Frekn luvv these grls : Influence

Okay, so i hit borders yesturday to do my regular: flip through sum mags, sip sum iced coffee, nd read some books. Also the store called me earlier in the week to tell me that new MK+A book that i orderd has arrived. The book is AMAZING. It's basically about the people whom influenced them. In it i found pleasently detailed interviews with fashion icons such as Karl Legarfeld, Christian Louboutin, Dian Von furstenberg and more! I enjoyed reading their interview with Karl Legarfeld the most. The man is amazing. Get this, he even talks about his weight loss and diet. The pictures are beautiful, the book is pure Art. These girls are doing what most people have to much pride to do: give bookoo props to the people who influenced them just like us nor-mal people do. Im tired of people walkin around like " I started this shit!". Put the diddy shades down, we are all "swagger" jackers, steez stealers, watever u wana call it...this is fashion; live it, embrace it, recycle it, dont take away from it!
