“The inspiration behind Livin' Proof '13 actually came from listening to the Cipha Sounds and Peter Rosenberg Morning Show on Hot 97,” explains Y-Roc. “They were having a DJ Premier tribute mix on his birthday and they Peter said that if an up and coming MC would just rock over the whole Group Home album and was able to really pull it off, than they would be out of here. I've released material before but not like this. I began to find my sound and my sound matured so its really like my first step into the door to let people know I'm here."
