We have an exclusive interview with Young Leek Detroit from Loud House ENT. for you. This man has been been working hard and keeps the fire coming. Get to know him a little better, check out this interview.
UGP: Let’s start off with a little bit about yourself. Where are you from? When did you start making music?
Young Leek Detroit: I go by the name Young Leek Detroit. I’m from the Westside of Detroit, right off 7 mile. I started making music when I was about 7 years old.
UGP: What label are you affiliated with?
Young Leek Detroit: I started my own label, LoudHouse Entertainment. I started the label in 2010.
UGP: What inspired you to start making your own music?
Young Leek Detroit: My grandmother really inspired my to make music. She would watch me watch 106 and Park Everyday and one day she told me like” You can do that”. So I pretty much took that and ran with it.
UGP: How would you describe the music you make?
Young Leek Detroit: I would describe my music as Raw, Unpredictable, Energetic, Fun.
UGP: Who have you collaborated with? Who would you like to collaborate with if you had the opportunity?
Young Leek Detroit: Over the past 4 years I’ve worked with a lot of artists in my city, really too many to name. I worked with Kiddo and Big Quis from Doughboyz Cashout. Who would I work with, I would have to say Meek Mill or Migos right now.
UGP: How did you get the chance to work with Doughboyz Cashout?
Young Leek Detroit: I reached out them and they reached back out, shout out to them. Go download Money Don’t Fold on ITunes.
UGP: How was the creative process from your songs “Ain’t Scared” different from “Money Don’t Fold”?
Young Leek Detroit: When we made Ain’t Scared, the flow was real mean and aggressive. We wanted to make a good song that the people can rock with and relate to. We pretty much took the same approach with Money Don’t Fold, the only difference I would say is I’ve had way more experiences (good and bad) when Money Don’t Fold came around, so I just seen more and had more to talk about.
UGP: What Detroit artists do you listen to?
Young Leek Detroit: I listen to everybody really, but I been rocking with the Kash Doll movement heavy. She took the city over, shout out to her.
UGP: Who is your favorite Detroit artist?
Young Leek Detroit: That’s a hard question right there, it’s hard to choose. I like Eminem, DBC, Big Sean, Danny Brown, I could go on for days.
UGP: Who does your production? Do you have that “go to” person, or do you prefer to shop around?
Young Leek Detroit: I worked with alot of producers from all over the country. I really don’t have one person I get production from. I like different styles and feelings in the music, so yeah, I like shopping around.
UGP: If you could work with any producer out there, who would that be?
Young Leek Detroit: If I could work with any producer it would have to be Kanye West. I been rocking with Kanye since way back and his music still has the effect as when I first heard him.
UGP: Tell us a little about your last project “Presidential Sweets”.
Young Leek Detroit: Presidential Sweets is my first independent album it dropped digital worldwide in June of 2014. I took my time with that album. The whole process of that album took about 2 years to finish. The feedback I’ve been getting on the album makes me feel like people actually appreciated the album, and these days It’s rare for independent albums to get love on ITunes and sites like that because people are barely buying music anymore. I love my fans and supporters for rocking with me.
UGP: Are you working on any new projects?
Young Leek Detroit: I’m working on my new album “Salute The Agreement”, it’s expected to be released early 2015. We don’t have a date yet for the album because I don’t want to rush it. I want to give the fans something they can really appreciate. I’ve always got something up my sleeve, and as far as mixtapes, I’m always brainstorming and creating new ideas.
UGP: Describe your process of making a project and how is your new album different from Presidential Sweets?
Young Leek Detroit: You gotta live! It might sound crazy but it’s really that simple. Think about it like this, if you stay in the house for a year straight and never left, what could you talk about except the house? Eventually you get repetitive, so that’s why I attack different beats that some of you wouldn’t even think I would do. I never rush a project, no matter what! I want to give all the people that support me a real classic they can listen to and appreciate. How will “Salute The Agreement” be different from “Presidential Sweets”? I really wouldn’t say different, just way more experienced, more elevated, more mature, and more focused. I feel real good about this album and I’m sure if you rock with me and support me, you’ll love it just as much as me.
UGP: Where can we find your music at?
Young Leek Detroit: You can find my music on YouTube, ITunes, Spotify, Rhapsody, Xbox Music, Google Music, Amazon and just about any music site you can find.
UGP: Any Shout outs?
Young Leek Detroit: Shout out to my beautiful city of Detroit, shout out to everybody over at Undergroundpodcast.com and a special shout out to all my fans and family, keep rockin’ with me I got us, it’s Detroit over everything.
