Born in Baltimore, MD; a place where hope doesn’t pay too many visits, “Y1” took all the hope he had and put it into his music. He is living proof that dreams can come true as long as you don’t give up on them. With his steady pace moving up through the music industry, his dream to have his music welcomed into the ears of the world is getting closer and closer. His goal is to be happy with whom he is, and the life he lives is essential to his music because when you step out of your character you never know what comes with the new character you are stepping into. At the age of 10, Y1 started writing songs, and by 11 he was performing them with no fear, only passion. His talents expand outside of the realm of music and into acting.
