[With standout anthems like “Be Yourself” featuring Young Dolph carrying over to 2016, Baltimore native YoungGoldie talks to SOHH about the comparisons of his hometown to the Washington, DC rap scene.]

There’s no such thing as a leader in a team. I put on for Baltimore and I want to rep my city.

Baltimore has a different sound. It can’t really be [put in the DMV-type of sound]. If they want to put it in [that category] DMV, it’s okay, it’s fine because we kind of the same but it’s not.

Baltimore got its own different slang. I can tell DC people from Baltimore people. In Baltimore, we’ll say ‘dug’ and DC they’ll be like ‘dog.’

It’s a whole different slang.

I think people don’t support each other here. They don’t want to see the next person shine. They all hate on each other, they’re killing each other, I just want everybody to have fun, I just want to put on for my city, come back and give back in the community and help other people. That’s what I want to do.

I think other artists have pride issues. I have to ask people if they want to be on a song. I don’t want to do that I shouldn’t have to beg you to get on a song.

I look out for people. I’m real humble.

Once I drop a project, I keep pushing. That’s what I do. I have songs and hits lined up.

Get ready because it’s coming.
