Let’s start at the very beginning – Who Are You?
Joshua Youngblood aka Big Homie. Here to pass on stories and wisdom to help guide and support. Nomadic by nature, emphatically trying to do better.
What makes you dope?
My music. Waiting my turn to tell my story has helped actualize all the anecdotes, pain, triumphs and truths of my travels and experiences.
Who was your first inspiration and how did you first learn about them?
I would say my parents were great influences on my character and desires when I was younger. I’ve also had some close peers, often older than me, that have always had my back and shown me right from wrong. Since then, my team, THC, and other artists in the music industry inspire me everyday.
What’s your happy place? Your favorite thing to do to bring yourself joy?
The studio. It’s cliche I’m sure to go on and on about how I feel connected to the music but it’s all new for me so I want to be consumed by it. Whether it’s making music or just talking about it with anyone coming by, it’s all I ever find myself wanting to do. To be able to create art without judgment or negative energy is surreal.
Where do you get your energy and motivation?
I have big dreams that involve helping a lot of people out and that isn’t going to happen if I’m not grinding everyday. I’m so fortunate and blessed to have all of the inspiration and resources allotted to me that I don’t want to waste a second wishing I had more. A lot of overseas work has taught me the value of personal accountability and I feel motivated to not let myself or my family down.
What does balance mean to you and how do you find it?
Balance means not trying to fill my cup with any one thing. I don’t want to obsess over one song, one interaction or one mistake. I’d rather be a Jack of all trades sort so that I can pick something else up if I feel like I’m running into a wall. It often helps clear up room to go back and figure out whatever I felt stumped by initially.
What sacrifices did you have to make or struggles did you face to get here?
Sometimes moving forward is leaving things behind that can’t go with you. So many relationships and efforts have come at the cost of trying to find personal happiness. Unfortunately, people can create worlds they want for you and becomes disappointed when you fail them. Instead of trying to be perfect for everyone, I’m trying to learn to just be happy with me.
What is the early advice you didn’t listen to that you wish you had? Or what advice would you give your earlier self?
Figure out your own cool and make it work for you. Don’t be hyperbolic, or passive aggressive. Be a teacher at all times.
What was your greatest failure and what did you learn from it?
I couldn’t find a happy road to making room for new family members as I got older. I try to pride myself on humility and availability but this was just never going to work. Creating division, losing loved ones, being kicked out, it all takes a toll. I learned a lot about myself though, and what I’m able to withstand and tolerate. I’m glad I was given a chance to figure it out on my own after that.
What was your proudest moment to date?
Dropping our music onto major platforms. What a rush!
