Embarking on a successful journey

Young MC was born in England to Jamaican immigrants who moved to New York when he was eight years old. As a kid growing up, he was inspired by some of the most notable names in the music industry like, the Beastie Boys, Salt-N-Pepa and LL Cool J. He later became interested in rap music and began practicing his rhyming skills when he was just ten. He went to the Hunter College High School and later completed his education by getting a degree in economics from the University of South California. It was at the university that he met with the owners of Delicious Vinyl, Michael Ross and Matt Dike. Young MC auditioned for them over the phone and was instantly signed.

 

Taking over hip-hop

After joining Delicious Vinyl, Young MC wrote a couple of successful singles, Wild Things and Funky Cold Medina in 1989 for Tone Loc. Both tracks performed well on the charts as they reached second and third spot on the Billboard Hot 100 respectively. Young MC then got his major breakthrough when he released his debut album, ‘Stone Cold Rhymin’ the same year which gained him international fame. The record reached the ninth and eighth spot on the Billboard 200 and Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. It was positively received by the critics as AllMusic and artistdistrict.com gave it five stars out of five. 

 

The record also featured six singles including, I Let E’m Know, Know How, Bust a Move, Principle’s Office, I Come Off and Pick up the Pace. Principle’s Office and I Come Off were Top 40 hits in the United States whereas Bust a Move debuted at the seventh position on the Billboard Hot 100 and stayed there for a whopping thirty nine weeks. The single was extremely popular and made it to the VH1’s list of the ‘100 Greatest Hip Hop Songs’ and the ‘100 Greatest Songs of the 1980s’ in 2008. It also earned him a Grammy Award for the ‘Best Rap Performance’ in 1990.

 

Still rocking it loud

After the success of ‘Stone Cold Rhymin,’ Young MC came out with his second record, ‘Brainstorm’ in 1991 which reached the sixty sixth and sixty first spots on the Billboard 200 and Top R&B/Hip-Hop albums chart. Though it was not as successful as his previous record, ‘Brainstorm’ still managed to receive mild success and was certified gold by the RIAA. It received mixed reviews from the critics as AllMusic gave it three stars out of five.

 

He has since gone on to put out six studio albums more. The songs from these later records were featured in television shows like, Scrubs, Knight Rider and Ugly Betty among others. Young MC’s music also featured in the trailer of films like, Four Brothers, Barnyard and Crossover. It also made its way to video games like EA Sports Tiger Woods 09.

 

Young MC also became the spokesman for Pepsi Cool Cans campaign in 1990 and has also starred in a cameo in the film, ‘Up in the Air’ featuring George Clooney. He has also won a Grammy Award, a Billboard Music Award and an American Music Award. He is now going on tour so, grab your Young MC tickets and watch his performance live.
