Get to know Artist: Y.A
How Long have you been doing music?
Y.A: Ive been doing music for tweleve years, sine I was eight years old.
Since you are into songwriting, do you also write for other artists besides yourself?
Y.A: Yes I do. I write for some of my artists, and I also write for females as well. Music speaks to everyone, so I write for everyone.
What sets you aside from other Hip-Hop artists that are also trying to make a name for themselves in the music business?
Y:A: I'm me and my music is my music. I have no passion in fame or money, I just want people to enjoy my music and feel what my life inspires me to write and produce.
Very well said Y.A, Sometimes as artists we forget that doing what you love should not be fueled by fame or fortune. Instead we should focus on the love that we have for our craft and have fun with it in every step of the way. Now, since you stated you embarked on this journey at the age of eight years old, I am curious to know at what age you step out and actually showcased your talents in front of a live audience?
Y.A: I was nine at a school talent show. Cliche, but through it I form a group. We did the damn thing but we came in second place.
What message would you spread if you were to become one of tomorrow's most influential voices?
Y.A: Be Your self! That's what makes you a "star" because there is no one like you.
If you were to collaborate with any artists out now, who would it be? And why?
Y.A: Soulja Boy because I need to show him how its done without dancing or repeating yourself on hooks (laughing).
Define "sky is the limit" in your own words.
Y.A: Losing is not an option.
