Storming onto the music scene with over 1.6 Million Youtube views on her “Brooklyn (Chiraq Freestyle)”, Young M.A, the 23-year old MC from Brooklyn, NY has announced a marketing and distribution partnership with Duck Down Music. The deal will be set in motion with the release of Young M.A’s upcoming Mixtape, Sleepwalking (Summer, 2015), followed by her debut project Herstory.

With mesmerizing freestyles on Funkmaster Flex’s Hot 97 show, Jack Thriller’s (ThisIs50) and new music on DJ Statik Selektah’s upcoming album, ‘Lucky 7,’  M.A has no shortage of early believers.  Already boasting 46K followers on Instagram, 2 Million plus SoundCloud streams, along with several music videos receiving over 500K views, few young artists are making such an impact.  Living out loud and proud with no fear of judgement, her music is clearly standing out.

Young M.A describes: “I’m trying to reach the whole world with my music, but mostly i want to reach the people that feel like they have no hope in life, or they feel like they can’t pursue their dreams. I had that feeling before, but i want to show them that anything is possible. Do it! Don’t change who you are in the process. Speak your mind and always stay true to yourself.” 

Duck Down’s CEO, Dru Ha, adds: “Like many others, I was introduced to Young M.A  through watching her video on Facebook. I instantly became hooked on her bars, flow and clever lyrics.  She offers the game a unique sound, and perspective that I can’t say I’ve experienced before.  She’s calculating with her words and captivating with her look; quite simply, a shark on that mic. We’re excited to be in business with Young M.A, helping to carry on the tradition with presenting the next generation of incredible Brooklyn MC’s.  Her story is about to be told.” 

 

A week after performing at Webster Hall for a special House Party appearance with Funkmaster Flex and making her debut appearance at BB KINGS; Buckshot brought her on stage for an impromptu performance during the Smif N Wessun / Mobb Deep 20-Year Anniversary show, Young M.A releases her latest music video, “Body Bags,” from her recently released Redlyfe mixtape.
