Yaiva's upcoming release: a personal journey

FLAGSTAFF - Navajo/Hopi hip-hop artist Gabriel Yaiva has come a long way from his first CD, "Straight Heat." In his upcoming "Life," Yaiva reveals more about himself as a person than in any of his previous releases. "It's got a couple songs on there that were really hard for me to record, such as 'Another Day,' about my gang experience and losing my life and almost taking another life," Yaiva said.
