Remember Yung LA? Known for his 2008 smash single "Ain't I," the Atlanta sauce pioneer slipped into relative obscurity after a dramatic fallout with Grand Hustle. He's now working on getting back into the spotlight and showing his city that his best music is still ahead of him. Last year, he changed his name to Da Boi Lay, signed to Zaytoven's Zaytown USA, and released four mixtapes, Expensive Language, 3Way: 80LayMafia (with 808 Mafia), 3Way: Dripset (with Zaytoven and Cassius Jay), and 3Way: Foreign Water. Each of the 3Way tapes dropped on the same day. He then went on hiatus to start prepping for a similar run in 2016, which officially began in September with Expensive Language 2. He's already back with another project, Tryna Tell Ya, which he hopes will finally impel people to stop sleeping on the man who started using much of today's trendiest lingo several years ago -- especially as he's now going by Yung LA once again. LA is intent that Tryna Tell Ya is one of his best projects to date.
Tryna Tell Ya is hosted by DJ P Exclusivez, DJ Pretty Boy Tank, and DJ Plugg. The whole tape is produced by Swif, and there are no features. Yung LA has also been camping out in the Trench Werk studios with Nard & B, and it's likely that he'll have another project to show for it before the year's up.
