From the Dec to Gwinnett, Downtown to the Mountain, Bankhead to Buckhead, East Point to the club joint, and even Alpharetta to making the Chedda, Cha`Lie Yung is doing the damn thing. The new mixtape single “Got Juice” with Cha`Lie Yung, Slim Dunkin, & Da Kid ft. Saint Orleans – IS GOING DOWN! The video is turning heads, from the east coast to west coast, from the north, and without a doubt, the south, rocking on youtube. With it’s hilarious opening and head bumping hook, “I got that jucie, juice…I got that juice, juice”, you too will be hooked. Another thing Cha`Lie Yung has on his side is the looks. Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, there are a lot of nice looking brothers out here doing the rap thing, but Cha’Lie turns heads when he walks in a room. He has the wagga and the dagga.

Born and bred in the streets of St. Louis, Charles Fields, better known as Cha’Lie Yung, has been deeply involved in music. He was raised by his grandmothers who instilled in him the desire and ability to work hard. Having Chuck Berry as a Great Uncle set the stage for him to create great music. Cha’Lie Yung moved to Atlanta at the age of 11 and began writing music. The Atlanta music scene has set the mode for Cha’Lie to become a successful performer. Blending the southern sounds of ATL with the Midwest swag of St. Louis, enabled Cha’Lie to attract a wide audience. His music style can be compared to that of T.I., Ludacris, and Nelly.

Not surprisingly at all, our stalker girl, Nik-O-Licious, was able to catch up with this, very familiar to the game, ATL sensation. Here’s what they shared over a couple of Heineken’s and a few shots of Patron. And Nik-O-Licious is NOT a drinker…This should be real, real, good! LOL

***********************”I got that nuu nuu for you po poos, I’m a nuisance got a lose screw*********************

The HEAT: We know you moved down here to the ATL from St. Louis, what you miss from St. Louis?
YUNG: I just left St Louis doing a show up there for “”…What I miss, I miss that Chinaman and White Castle…(we laugh hard)
The HEAT: Yeah, it’s no Whitecastle down here.
YUNG: Naw, it’s Krystal’s…aint’ the same…too much mustard.

The HEAT: What’s it like being the legendary Chuck Berry’s great nephew?
YUNG: Oh man, he’s a wonderful young man. I’m blessed to be related to that guy. It’s cool. I met him when I was much younger on his Ranch in Missouri. Just rapping with him I found that we had a lot in common because we were both very musically inclined. I’ve been doing music all my life. From being in the band in school, marching band too. I started doing shows with stage bands of all sorts and concerts. Music has always been in my life.
The HEAT: So tell us, when did you first fall in love with rap music?
YUNG: I’ve always been a fan of the Easy E, Bone Thugs and Harmony and people of that musical generation. I started doing music professionally only a few years ago. But I would have to say that I just have always been in love with music rap, R&B, Jazz, all music.
The HEAT: We hear some Ludacris and Nelly in your music, that northern kind of thing. Did these guys influence you to take your music genesis to another level?
YUNG: I would yes. Not only them but also I’m a big fan of T.I., Lil Wayne, Jay-z, Busta Rhymes, these type guys in the industry.
The HEAT: So are we gonna hear some Busta kind of stuff coming from you?
YUNG: I can get down, now…(he smiles and licks his lips) I got some heat on my mixtape that’s dropping?
The HEAT: Do you think that rap music plays a significant role in the way BLACK America is portrayed?
YUNG: Depends on how you think about it. I guess my generation, we understand today’s music more than the generations before me when Hip Hop/Rap music first began; of course with an exception of you…(we laugh hard)
The HEAT: Do you feel that Hip Hop and Rap are two different genres of music?
YUNG: In a way. There’s Gangsta Rap then there’s Hip Hop. I’m a mixture of all of it.
The HEAT: So tell us how Cha`Lie Yung, Da Kid, Slim Dunkin, and SaintO all got together.
YUNG: I met Kid about a year and a half ago at an open mic. He had this record called “Fallacio” at the time. My DJ, DJ Kamilllion introduced me to him. I heard “Fallacio” and I was a fan instantly! I met up with Kid at the studio and Slim Dunkin was there. We did some stuff together and from then on we said we were going to work together. A few months later Slim came to DJ Kamillion’s record store and said we gone go to work. And the rest is history. We ended up with the record. He came, Kid knocked it out. Slim Dunkin, SaintO, and myself, we knocked it out and everything else is history.
The HEAT: I have to ask you, who is that beautiful woman that keeps interrupting the video shoot? (We laugh very hard. You gotta see the making of the video to understand.)
YUNG: (hysterically laughing) Man let me tell you. I guess she was a very big fan of “Got Juice” and she was determined to be in the video. So what the hell, we put her in the video…but your readers have to see the making of the video to get the full effect of her. She was cool though…we gave her some juice, but she was on some other kind of juice..that real juice…(we laugh)
The HEAT: What’s coming next for Cha`Lie Yung?
YUNG: Well I’m working on my mixtape right now that will be dropping mid February. I pushed it back because I want people to learn about Cha`Lie Yung. I been hitting these streets making sure people understand what Cha`Lie Yung gone offer so when the mixtape does drop, people gone know me. I can drop a mixtape tomorrow but if I haven’t done my leg work, it’s jut gonna be another mixtape out there. I want people to really know Cha`Lie Yung, so they will anticipate and appreciate my music when it drops.
The HEAT: Sounds like a man on a mission to me. So you got any shout outs?
YUNG: Yeah, I want to first thank God for my talent. What a blessing. I always thank my grandma Ruby Belcher and my dad, Darrell Wiley, who has always stood behind me. I wanna shout out to my dj, DJ Kamillion, my producer Wiz da Kid, my bois, DJ Scream, DJ Swoop Izzo, Money Rain, Hood Rich, Champ, “”, Joe, and everybody on the Cha`Lie Yung campaign. I want to shout out to my fans that’s been showing me love every since I dove off into this music thing. Without the fans, there would be no reason to do what I do. And I saved the best for last, I want to shout out to Nik-O-Licius and The Heat Magazine for giving me this opportunity to check them off my list…lol I couldn’t wait to get with you guys. You guys are opening up a significant zone for underground artist to be heard. Thank you Nik, it’s been a pleasure.
The HEAT: Wow! Thank you for recognizing the movement… and the pleasure has been all mine. We wish you the best of success and we don’t have a doubt you are opening all the doors to receive just that.
