Biography

Yussef Black, the artist formerly known as Mista RG, is a rapper, producer, and songwriter. He got his start in music as a DJ in the 9th grade in his room mixing different sounds and taking instrumentals adding his vocals to them. Even then, Yussef has always had an ear for unique sounds and blending the most unconventional of things. This stems from his mother, who use to be a radio station deejay and she would often take Yussef to work with her.

Yussef graduated to the mainstream in 1995 when he met former rapper and recording engineer Ed G, from the Phatheads, and Robert of the Polygon recording studios in Pennsaukin, NJ. It was during this time when, Yussef attended Rutgers University in Camden, NJ that he recorded such songs as "Eveready" and "An American Tale" which had the first sample of Willie Hutch's "I Choose You" from the blaxapoliation classic The Mack. He was met with resistance from the industry at that time....even one A&R went as far to tell him that your style is more spoken word and we are looking for the next DMX. Being ahead of his time, he had only to wait 2 years before artists like Kanye West, Mos Def, Lil Wayne, Nelly, T.I., The Cool Kids, and countless others would turn the music industry on its ear. So now 11yrs later, it is now the perfect time....I give you, Yussef Black!

Currently, Yussef is working on his debut album titled, Conflicted, and he has enlisted a few independent artists who share his vision of hip hop music...Iranian rapper, Salome, tha Outsider; and South Texas rapperproducer LoDown Magellan of LMD Produkchiz210 Faction just to name a few. Conflicted is slated for a late January '09 release to be followed by an EP titled, Conflict Resolution which will include remixes, commentary on the making of the album, as well as a few tracks that did not make the final cut for the album. So until then you can check out some leaks on his myspace page and also his singles "Baby's Fire", "Hello", and "Breathe On Em" available on Itunes, Amazon, and Rhapsody. Peace out 1!

I like classical music, jazz, blues, and oldies. I like using a lot of strings in my music. I don't listen to a lot of hip hop o
