The Radio Boys  (C.Truth, Kev Lawrence) spoke with Sacramento artist and community activist YELLY (@officialyelly). YELLY talked about singing since elementary school, how she handles new success, dropping a music project her 2nd year in high school,  what life is like growing up in Sacramento, the importance of the Stephon Clark tribute and fighting for justice, being on the youth poetry slam team (finishing 3rd in the world at the final stage), creating the Urban Mix club for black/brown youth geared towards the arts, plans to study business further in college,  "letting your brain be as beautiful as your body,"  the journey of finding herself as a young woman, new generation of drugs consuming the youth, the pressure to be a certain image in music, why "Lust n found" is not necessarily about what the title suggest, staying balanced, having a great childhood and more.
