This is my first album I've released in my career. Humble Beginnings, says it in the name but also tells an intricate story of you noticed it. I tell the story of getting my heart broke, getting into some even more crazy shit. I'm not gonna say much, cause I want you to hear it for yourself and piece the first puzzle together but I will say, fans of R&B, Rap and HipHop and those who like Alternative music will love this piece of work. It's 10 tracks long and each one comes from a different experience I've been through, but enough about the music. Allow me to introduce myself; Hi, how are you? I'm Caleb Youngblood aka YB Baby. I'm mainly an R&B singer, songwriter, vocalizer/harmonizer Melody creator but I do also rap and freestyle. I've been singing for my entire life and I just decided to use the talents I was blessed with to inspire and bless everyone around me and the world. I'm very different from everyone else I can say that. But I'll leave that a mystery?.. But I started rapping in 5th grade. And I wasn't really good at it at first, but I stayed with it. As a matter of my records on this album had some hooks and lines I wrote as a kid. But I started freestyling in 7th grade on the back of the school bus with this guy Tyler royalty. He taught how to stay in beat and just roll with it. He also taught me how to switch up my flow on the beay yet still stay in rhythm and timing. And I started a whole new journey in my life. The start of an artist in the making. I kept working at my music, and I started doing rather well at it. I was writing so much music, but the problem was, no one ever heard a song because I didn't think no one would listen. My worst fear was getting beaten up for singing. But I put my fear aside my freshman yeah and did a talent show and sang Bruno Mars It Will Rain with an Acapella rendition of just the way you are. At first no one cheered when they said my name and everything, but the ENTIRE AUDITORIUM WENT BERSERK WHEN I FINISHED. No joke, it took them 10 minutes after i was done to stop cheering and clapping. Keep in mind, I'm black and I went to an all white school and brought the house down. So it was crazy for me. When I left and went to Middletown though I was more comfortable but still scared to do that in a new environment. And when I showed to my first period English class, the entire school knew before school was out for the day. And everyone wanted to hear me sing and it was amazing. I did that talent show my sophomore year and sang John Legends All of Me Acapella but it got cut short cause school had been let out and I dipped out too. But I kept working and working at it, day and night, all the time, people would literally call me the human iPod and everyone loved the songs I sang, verses I freestyled and things I had written. I started freestyling A LOT in 2016 and I just became great at it. I amaze everyone that watches me Freestyle and people used to tell me to get in the studio all the time, and I used to think it costed Thousands of dollars and I'm not rich so I didn't think I could. But I then went in the fall of 2016 to join of the US Air Force and I did. I then wasn't shy no more and let everyone know I could sing, confidently and greatly to the point when I graduated technical school, I got to sing the national anthem for our base Commander and received his highest Honor. And those are not given to just anyone who sings the anthem, he told me I was destined for more than this. I ended up leaving service after 13 months due to a lot of mental issues and problems, I got depressed and I couldn't get out of it, and I almost killed myself. Everyday I'm thankful that noose fell before I went. And I went to a hospital for awhile and got myself together and I left the service on a general under honorable condition December 8th 2017. Not a bad a way, a good way. But I was dating this girl at the time and she was my world my everything and owe didn't break up. The was our problem, we tried to with it out long distance and she ended up cheating on me a lot. To the point she was going after who I thought was my best friend at the time but in time he showed his true colors. So fast forward to March 2018, my dad and I got in a disagreement and I left my parents house. I went to go see my friend at the time David, and his girl did some shit and got the opps called while she on probation and we all went away for awhile and I seen my girl at the time and she rolled with me for a little while in April of 2017, after many empty promises of getting be an oil change, my car broke down and we had it get it towed. Now we're stranded, and we have no money, no food, no job, and no place to sleep and she tells me she's pregnant with someone else's kid. And after she does she breaks up with me. And leaves me out in the cold under a rock with a camp fire. And the worst part was David and his girl had his pill head mom come get them and he left me stranded and when I called him, he said you'll survive. I was stuck until the end of of April on my own scrounging and scraping. And it ended up really bad a situation occurred and I don't want to mention it here but it was bad, I didn't go to jail or nothing, but it was very traumatic. And it forever changed me. And I had to keep my head up and keep going after that, So eventually my mom buys me a ticket home on a Greyhound bus. In May and I came home. Got a job and started writing, being heavily heartbroken I was influenced by XXXTENTACION Juice Wrld, Ski Mask The Slump God, and hella more artists. So my style my flow and who I was started to change dramatically. I started to open more in my music, and the stories I'd tell while freestyling everyday at work and Kings Island on Western Row Road. At my job they called me the music Man cause I always was freestyling and singing something. People at Kings Island kept asking me who I wasn't famous yet and I could never give them an answer. But I kept writing and believing in me and I wrote my first album A New Vibe which will be making a debut on my soundcloud YB Baby, very soon. And in October of 2019 are a year of back to back Heartbreak and misery I recorded my first song A Singers Rendition part 1. And the journey continued on. But in November 23rd 2019 my life changed for the worst and i hit an all-time low when my 14 year old brother Lincoln committed suicide. And I found his body and it forever traumatized me. During the aftermath of that I met this girl who became my everything she matched my energy and everything it was crazy. And she seen the vision in me and she helped bring it to live by buying me studio time with my boy Curtis Turner aka Cing Curt. And we began working daily and finished the entire album and just kept knocking songs left and right I ended up recording 69 songs in 3 months. Then we took a break for a few months while he went to Cali and things started falling apart in my life again and I kept pressing to 2021 and I started recording again. And it's been wild. I wanna take off in my career and I want just a shot at making it.
