D J Yella is an American musician, a D.J, a record producer as well as an actor who has recently started to explore his acting horizons in some movies as well as TV shows. He made his way up as a D.J and after having significant success as well as wealth, started his own record company. DJ Yella, along with other performers like Ice cube and Dr. Dre was one of the original member of World Class Wreckin’ Cru; an Old school Hip Hop band group which contributed a lot to rap music during its short life from 1985 to 1988. Their brief span could be called successful with many fans already buying records and concert tickets. They also signed with CBS Records and later released another album with Epic Records.
Likewise, he is one of the active members of N.W.A (Niggaz Wit Attitudes), which is a gangster rap group from California. Between 1986 and 1991, this group was constantly hit as well as hugely criticized for their lyrics, which were offensive especially towards women; and sang and praised about drugs and crime. Known for their hatred towards police and politics, the group was later banned from being played in radio stations although they had already sold over 10 million records in United States of America only. Along with Yella, there were other famous musicians and rappers like Arabian Prince, Dr. Dre, Eazy-E etc. Yella is a big man with a great physique and his height of almost 6 feet tall is matched by his weight of around 98 kg. He doesn’t have any shirtless picture in the media, but he might have some on his Instagram or Twitter pages.
Probably best known by his stage name D.J Yella, he was born as Antoine Carraby on the 11th of December, 1967 in Compton, California, U.S.A. His early passion towards music saw him leave home early as he started to play drums in the streets of Los Angeles from where he gradually rose up. With the Hip Hop trend being new o the American music culture, Yella soon discovered friends who had similar interests and joined with them in performing some music. Eventually, the group WRC was formed and Yella worked on all the drum parts, creating new beats and mixing them up with electro music. With this experimental phase being a milestone in the history of RN’B music, the group made some fans in and around U.S.A, and on their short trip to London for a concert. They attended a crowd of 9 thousand Brits and other people in Wembley Stadium, which was surprising for everyone. Having earned huge fame and popularity in his days, I am sure his net worth’ although discrete from the media, must be high.
There is not much information in the media, regarding the past life of Yella and there is no data about his personal life too. Known for his silent nature and very little communication with the media, we don’t know much about his parents, his childhood, family life or ethnicity. After leaving home, he struggled for most of his days before he made a name for himself with the World Class Wreckin’ Cru; and later with N.W.A. Out of 6 original members in that group, he is the only one who is not married and thus has not got a wife or kids. He isn’t known for having any girlfriends in the past too; and so divorce would be out of the question. However, he has been the godfather of Eazy-E’s youngest son Derrek Wright; known by his stage name E3. His lack of romance in life has made us suspect whether or not is he sexually gay.
