YELLAH’S (YELLER FROM DA F.L.A) BIOGRAPHY
Corey Anthony Thompson aka “Yellah” was born in New Orleans, Louisiana to Puerto Rico decent mother Elizabeth Torres and African American father Clausell Thompson in 1980. Later that year parents separated and Corey left with his mother to Auburndale, Florida to stay with grandparents Isabel Torres and Nemesio Torres. At this time Corey started speaking Spanish and didn’t learn English until the age of 5 years old. Growing up Corey was inspired by all kinds of music, but loved Michael Jackson. Growing up Corey and his mother moved all over Polk County. Dealing with all the turmoil surrounding Corey, it wasn’t a secret that they were poor. At an early age of 7 Corey knew he was given a gift from God to sing in and out of church. At the age of 14 Corey started trying to write his own music, at first it wasn’t that good but soon he learned to just keep it real writing and singing about what he see through his eye on these mean streets of Polk County. Now his music became natural. By the age of 15 Corey got into drug selling and using. Playing basketball was his life more than his true gift singing and writing music. By 16 he became a delinquent and started stealing cars and got caught up. In 1994 Corey, mother and other siblings moved into Oak Ridge Apartments which influenced him more into the life of hustling, selling drugs, drinking, and barely going to school. Getting in and out of church, somehow the Lord was with him threw it all.
In 1998 Corey became father to a beautiful little girl name Breionna but still ran the street hard encountering more drugs, women and two more daughters Cordaja and Kavarea. Before Kavarea Corey did a year in prison were he used his time wisely and wrote his life into songs that the world could relate to that’s where the name Yellah “Yeller from the F.L.A.” came about. While in prison Yellah song so loudly usually screaming and yelling verses he wrote or heard on the radio some of the inmates called him Yellah from the F.L.A. Later after getting released from prison and serving another year in the Frost Proof Jail where he wrote three more albums of music, Corey said he rather be poor than go back to prison and be away from his children another day. In late 2005 Corey was blessed to come in contact with Venny Smith aka “Mr. Smith” owner of Wyde Open Records. They had a few meeting listening to Corey singing and writing abilities. Now signed to Wyde Open Records the skies the limit and another testimony.
GOD CAN MAKE A WAY OUT OF NO WAY.
