UGK Influenced The Hustle Yung Pooda Used To Work With Paul Wall

In a new interview with HipHopDX's Connected DXTS series, Yung Pooda explained how the careers of Texas legends such as DJ Screw and UGK helped influence his grind, which led to his collaboration with Paul Wall.

January 7, 2021 Finally, in 2018 after countless releases, local radio showcases and opening performances for artists such as Boosie Badazz, Yung Pooda got his shot at collaborating with a childhood hero when he joined forces with Paul Wall for his Beat Up The Block single. You started by just listening to these guys and seeing them on TV, now Im getting game from them, Yung Pooda said. So that was real big for me. Thats something that I will forever cherish. He definitely told me to stay in my head, stay in my business and make sure the ones around me or really with me. He dropped a lot of gems and gave me a lot of knowledge. We talked for about an hour after we did the song in the studio, just chopping it up. But that was something. Pooda continued, recalling how starstruck he was when Paul Wall pulled up to the parking lot of the studio even though the pair had met previously, and detailed how the encounter inspired him to go harder and seize his opportunity to shine. Yeah. Right when he walked in, well, actually he was sitting in the car when I pulled up, he was sitting in the car, he was writing his verse, he said. I Spoke to him. Hes like, Im going to come in and chop it up with you. So I came in and I let them hear the track. I let them hear my verse. And he was like, Yeah, bro, this is hard, So Im like, Paul Wall like my track. Thats big for me and my city too, because like I say bro, we grew up listening to him. Now here I am working with somebody I looked up to and been listening to. My pops then, Yo, check this out, listen to this, listen to this. And older crowds, now Im working with him. So Im like, Yeah, this is real. This is real. And then the conversation we had, it just let me know no more, that it could actually happen if I just really take this serious. Yung Pooda ft.
