Being signed to Universal Music Group (UMG) as well as being the creative director for BRMUDV, YMSKZY has been busy this year. From capturing alluring footage of your favorite artists like Playboi Carti, Rico Nasty, DaBaby, Saweetie & more to having a hand in event coordination, he seems to be everywhere, all the time.

How did you get started?

I’ve been a fan of music, rap specifically, for as long as I remember, but I didn’t get my start until about 2007/2008. I was living in Lagos, Nigeria at the time and young money had really started popping so I remember always printing out Lil Wayne and Drake lyrics. Eventually, I just started writing my own, and making my own songs.

Which of your songs did you enjoy working on the most?

"It’s an unreleased song called “San Juan.”

That’s my favorite because it was a song based on one of my favorite vacations and the memories associated with that vacation. It’s hard to pick just one favorite though, each song means something different to me and is representative of a different aspect or experience in my life."

What inspires you to make music?

Life and my experiences, as well as any experiences I want to manifest. I like to use music as a vision board at times, and I’ll find myself saying a specific lyric, then a few weeks later that lyric comes true. Music is powerful in that way.

Where do you see your growth in a year?

"Revolutionizing the world of creativity."

What advice can you give up-and-coming artists?

"Understand the game you’re in, and become a master of analysis. Then you’ll be equipped to really see your vision through. Always spread love and positivity; that’s the one thing that holds the world together. If you’re reading this do something special for someone today."

Also being a student studying at Towson University, his time management had to be impeccable in order to thrive in every field he entered. Be on the lookout for his artistry.
