Sometimes things happen to reveal that what you thought was your life’s dream was merely a bump in the road towards something even better. That could certainly be said for Yearwood, who after spending time studying at Harvard and Wharton College, followed it up with 11 years working for the man in the field of high finance. An unintended break between jobs gave him time to look at his life, and focus on honing his musical talent.
The Trinidad and Tobago native realised that having a product isn’t enough; there must be a way to deliver it to the masses, and so Yearwood started his own entertainment company, Mission Road Entertainment, aiming to not just shine the spotlight on his own considerable talents, but also to be a point of contact for others.
Yearwood’s latest single, ‘Teddy Massacre’, runs out the gate fast and furious, with Yearwood spitting the rhymes over the top of a blistering beat. It’s over the top, but in a good way – there’s parts that will make you smile, there’s others that will make you wonder if he really said that – but overall the song shows the listener just how determined this artist is, to succeed at any cost.
The video for ‘Teddy Massacre’ sees Yearwood and his crew cruising the streets of the DUMBO neighbourhood in Brooklyn. There’s stained glass windows, cobbled streets, and the bridges you’ll have seen in videos, films, and TV shows. The clip is as much a celebration of the district as it is a showcase of Yearwood’s talent, and with his crew, he shows us just who’s in charge and the life of this party.
