Yng SkoLA was born in Wilmington NC, but through shuffling around the states as a kid, he has ended up in California. He states that his reason for writing is to show that all rap doesn't have to be act. He says "A lot of people get in front of a mic and start repeating what they think is appealing instead of what they know and whats real...
