Young Pope recently sat down with DJ Spins to talk about the latest shows, his upcoming plans for the year & much more! We got up close & personal to Know Young Pope in this exclusive 1 On 1 interview with Straight Official Magazine.


How did you come up with your stage name?
My stage name was brought to me by a dream I had one night where I was in front of a big crowd and the background of the place I was at was a church. I then looked down and I saw that I was wearing a robe/pope robe. Since then I came up with the stage name “Young Pope”

Please tell us where you’re from and what first got you interested in the entertainment industry.
I was born in Mexico but have lived all my life in Houston, TX. What got me interested in the entertainment business was the spotlight an artist gets, that being the money, the fame and the thought of millions listening to my music and being real lifetime fans.

Who and/or what inspires you to create?
Great Artists like Bad Bunny, J Balvin and Drake are some who inspired me to create my music. Also, it inspires me to create knowing any song that I make can go to the top of the charts with one single clip on social media. That drives me to keep creating new music.

How would you describe your sound?
I would describe my sound as a Mainstream radio / Latin trap sound. If i can use a word to describe my sound i would say “Trendy”

What is your creative process like?
I start by playing beats on YouTube. On another phone I press record on my voice memos and I freestyle to different instrumentals. Once I have a base or a chorus/rhythm to the verses I go back and listen to the recording of the freestyle session and plug in words if needed and create as I listen back to the sessions

What artist(s) would you like to collaborate with?
Bad Bunny, J Balvin, Young Miko, Rauw Alejandro, Feid, Drake & Travis Scott

If you could open a show for any artist who would it be?
It would have to be either bad bunny or Drake since I make both genres.

What is one message you would give to your supporters?
Never stop believing in your dreams even if nobody else believes in them. If you can visualize your dream in your head then you can make that come true. Stay focused and disciplined towards your goal because it will not come easy. Time is running out day by day so don’t waste it.

What is the most useless talent you have?
The most useless talent is being able to overthink myself into thinking I have a rare disease.

What would you be doing right now, if you weren’t doing music?
The same thing I would be doing now but minus the music and that would be having a high income job with multiple streams of income from other sources of income.

Who are some artists you admire and why?
Drake and J Balvin are two of the biggest artists I admire due to breaking the records beyond what anybody would ever think was possible and continuing to stay relevant for so long.

What is the best advice you’ve been given?
Invest in your craft, invest in yourself, and invest in your knowledge.

If you could change anything about the industry, what would it be?
It would be to open more doors for more artist to get the major spotlight big labels give to an artist.


Tell us about your latest release.
I just released 2 new singles, the latest one is “Tocar a ti” . It’s a Latin reggaeton song. My other release is “DMLQTQ” which is another Latin reggaeton song. Both of these records mark my lane to the Spanish side of my music career and they are the base of the hits I have in store coming.

What’s next for you, where would you like to see yourself next year?
I have more music I want to release, more singles and an EP. I got English/Hip-Hop songs coming as well with visuals. Next year I would like to see myself on bigger platforms performing at bigger shows and expanding my fan base worldwide.
