Aged 17, Yung Bala entered his first rap battle at a house party in Houston, Texas and in his own words "completely destroyed a useless rappers' career". In 2007 at the age of 18, he won the Dallas "K104's" Rap Battle contest called Hometown Showdown with his smashing slow jam hit "Just A Little"..
