اولین پست این وبلاگ اختصاص دارد به بیوگرافی کامل یاسر ملقب به یاس به دو زبان فارسی و انگلیسی.
بیوگرافی یاس از زبان خودش:
متولد سال 1982 میلادی _مصادف با 1360 شمسی _ بیست و شش ساله
محل تولد : تهران
یاسر از سن شانزده سالگی به موسیقی رپ علاقه داشت و از آن زمان به بعد به آن گوش میداد.
هنگامی که پدرش برای کارهای تجاری به آلمان سفر می کرد برای او سیدی های خوانندگان سبک هیپ هاپ و به خصوص
توپاک را می آورد.
بعد از مرگ ناگهانی پدرش تمام مسئولیت خانواده بردوش او افتاد و توانست به سختی بدهی های پدرش را بپردازد.
او در هجده سالگی فکر رفتن به دانشگاه را از سرش بیرون کرد وبرای حمایت از خانواده اش _ مادر،برادرکوچکش و خواهرانش _ مشغول کار شد.
در این هنگام بود که شروع به نوشتن شعر کرد که خیلی زود تبدیل به متن آهنگ هایش شد.
این کار باعث می شد تا او به یاد پدرش بماند.
زلزله ی بم تاثیر عمیقی بر روی یاس گذاشت و باعث شد تا او اولین آهنگش را به نام بم بنویسد که ابتدای خواندن حرفه ای او بود.
او متوجه شد که توانایی گفتن تمام واقعیت ها را به زبان رپ دارد.
او تصمیم داشت تا برای کارهایش مجوز بگیرد ولی برای این کار با مشکلات زیادی مواجه شد و بارها مورد تمسخر قرار گرفت، ولی در نهایت موفق شد و توانست برای شش آهنگ از ده آهنگش مجوز بگیرد.
کارهای او مهمولا با بیان مشکلات اجتماعی جامعه شروع می شود و با امید پایان می یابد.او در آهنگ هایش ناسزا نمی گوید
و از بیان مسائل س-ک-س-ی وخشن اجتناب می کند.
کارهای یاس امروزه به قدری موفق شده که به نوعی به استاندارد جدیدی در رپ فارسی تبدیل شده و طوری که افرادی
مثل من تصمیم به نوشتن وبلاگی در مورد یاس گرفته اند و در ایران او را با نام توپاک ایران میشناسند.

Born In 1982 – Tehran, YAS first began to listen to rap music at the age of 16, when his father would return from his business trips in Germany and bring him the latest Tupac CD and other hip hop music
After the sudden and untimely death of his father, YAS was faced with the responsibility of becoming the primary care taker of his household
With his father’s debts mounting
and hardly being able to make ends meet, YAS at the age of 18 was forced to leave his college ambitions behind and begin to work and support his entire
family (his mother, younger brother and triplet sisters)
It was at this time that he began to write poetry which soon turned into text lyrics for his music. It was also his way of staying close to his father’s memory
After the Bam earthquake in Iran, YAS was devastated at the number of lives lost (nearly 50,000 people) in the disaster, it was
then, that he wrote his first song
This was the beginning of his singing career
He realized that through rap music he had the ability to reach people by telling full stories that he thought was not easy to do through other forms of music which only consisted of a few versus and a chorus
Realizing that through his music, he had the ability to inspire people and reach millions of other young people in Iran, he decided to present his songs to
the government and request a permission to release an album
Many years of hearing “NO!” from the officials, and being ridiculed countless times for his singing style
rap resembling that of “reading a newspaper”, his efforts, finally paid off
To date, in an unprecedented move, six of his ten songs have been granted permission to be released, and soon, YAS will be the first rapper in Iran to legally release an album
I don’t use fowl language in my music or sing about sex and violence
I want to be able to proudly sing my music in front of my family
My music usually begins with a complaint — but it ends with hope
It’s important to inspire the younger generations to be their best potential
Indeed, in a short amount of time, YAS went from singing in front of small groups to now being one of Iran’s most popular rap artists
His music is now being listened to and downloaded by hundreds of thousands across the world through various websites and Persian blogs
In 2006, YAS wrote a song called “CD ro Beshkan”
Break That CD, which was written about a well known female actress in Iran who was the victim of sex scandal tape that was being circulated
The scandal ultimately ended her blossoming career
In the song YAS criticizes those people who played an active role in her demise and asked everyone to stop spreading her shame and to get rid of that infamous footage from their computers and mobile phones
The song hit a nerve among the Iranian youth and thousands confessed that they went ahead and ‘broke that CD’
It is said that the song was listened to and downloaded by at least 3-4 million in Iran alone
YAS’ music has crossed the International waters and he is now fast becoming the voice of his generation — for Iranians inside and outside of their country who often refer to him as the Persian Tupac
YAS’ latest song, “Hoviate Man” (My Identity) sings of his pride in
his Persian heritage and a mention of the controversial movie “300″
The song has become sort of a national anthem for the younger generations especially the Iranian Diaspora that are eager to connect to their rich culture and history
His music has set a new standard for Persian rap and has inspired many up and coming rappers to follow his lead and sing of more meaningful and positive messages in their own music and when he is not recording himself, you will find him collaborating with other musicians
to help “introduce Persian rap to the world”
YAS is currently in the studio finishing
his latest highly anticipated album — covering social topics as he takes the listener through a journey of his personal life
His proudest moment was being able to enroll
his triplet sisters (all honor students) through
college — a privilege he wasn’t able to fulfill for himself
