Trap has grown over the years to become one of the most popular music genres of the current generation. Rap is no longer traditional but now has multiple flavor additions to it. Therefore, any rapper has more reasons to embrace this thriving genre if they want to succeed in rap music. The growth of trap music has enabled many young talented rap artists to appear in the scene.
Yung Roda is one of them and shows quite promising efforts.
Growing up in West Los Angeles, he was of course exposed to all types of music. Despite liking many genres, by age 12 he was certain rap was his main interest.
However, he did not start as a rapper. With big studios being something, he had only imagined at that young age, he had figured he must learn how to produce, record, mix, and master songs. So, he saved up to get an iPad 2 and start learning to produce on GarageBand. It was not until he was around 16 that he was able to get a microphone and start learning to record and develop a sound of his own. He often worked with MCM Raymond and Pure Luxury, as all three of them had many classes together back in high school.
Despite making many songs to share with friends, he did not officially release any music until late 2017.
At this time, he was attending CSU Los Angeles to study music technology. He stopped attending classes quite early so he could work, make connections, and earn money in “other ways”.
By early 2018 he had landed himself a job with a major party-brand. While working there, he made a few connections that played key roles in getting him where he is today. One of them is his former coworker who introduced him to AT, Icy Narco’s current manager. While helping AT and his artists navigate Los Angeles on their visits, he met Luxury Tax 50, who signed Roda to 808 Mafia West in 2018.
By the time 2019 came around, Yung Roda had been removed from college and was pursuing his passion as much as he could while working cold call positions. However, that year he periodically stopped releasing music to work on his production, as he was also handling the loss of one of his closest friends, and fellow musicians, Apollo Carter.
He is now back at releasing music, and his recent drop named Greenmode is an indication of promising talent. The song registers well with blunts. It comes with chilling vibes and gives you a real wavy feel. Roda might be young to the game, but he shows the potential of becoming an even better rapper. Also, checkout .45 FT.

More importantly, signing with the 808 Mafia West puts him at a higher advantage of success. This is because he will work around skillful and experienced people in the industry. This could transform Yung Roda’s raw talent into something significantly tangible.

It is incredible how Roda is appreciating the importance of social media platforms to growing his following. The rapper’s Instagram is gradually increasing its audience, and this will be a great avenue to interact with fans. In our current day and age, it is essential that one can embrace social media and what it could do in terms of marketing.
When it comes to Yung Roda’s music, there is so much to look forward to. The rapper is a force to reckon with.
