Biography

Sky Balla exemplifies the hustle and flow that are absolutely essential in today’s rap game. The young Bay Area boss figured out early on how to make the industry work for him, and has been developing his musical creativity and polishing his business acumen. After working various independent ventures, he teamed with Bay Area label Tycoon Status Entertainment to create his aptly titled debut album, Tycoon Status. Features on the album include E-40, Cassidy, Hell Rell, San Quinn, Mistah F.A.B. and more, and will be released in association with Koch Entertainment on April 1.

The reality of how to succeed in life has never been an issue for Sky Balla. He learned early on growing up in the impoverished Fillmore section of San Francisco that he needed to tap into all of his God-given talents in order to achieve his dream of becoming an emcee. Sky turned his natural communication skills into make valuable connections. When he was just 16-years-old he joined forces with two other local kids to form Tha Gamblaz. Under the guidance of Bay Area superstars San Quinn and JT the Bigga Figga, Tha Gamblaz debuted on JT’s local smash album Operation Takeover in 1997.

Later that year, Master P snatched up Tha Gamblaz for his West Coast Bad Boyz, Pt. II album, which went on to sell over a million copies worldwide. “After that I knew it was serious,” remembers Sky. “I really had to stay focused and step my game all the way up. I knew it wasn’t just a dream anymore – it was becoming reality at a young age. I was 17 on a platinum record.”
