I found out about Ye The Goat because one of his pictures popped up in my feed and in the picture he is with rising artist “Ohtrapstar”, and I was curious about who this guy (Ye The Goat) was. He seems a little mysterious, that is what intrigued me.
Whats the mystery? I never heard of him before this and he is also cool with Ohtrapstar who is also seemingly popping up out of nowhere. Also Ye, has 11.7k followers on IG and his pics get anywhere from 1100 to 2800 likes and mad comments. So it doesn’t seem to be fake followers and social proof that he is getting. Yet he only has two tracks on Soundcloud so who is this guy.
Well he was down to do an interview which you can check out below.
