We had the good fortune of connecting with YungM3tro and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi YungM3tro, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
In the music industry, much like many other industries it’s hard to get your leg in the door. Even when you do you’re met with record labels, and other big business that try to exploit new artists because they know many artists don’t know how the business works. Not to mention you usually don’t have any creative freedom. I always knew from a young age I wanted to be more than an artist, and starting my own business was always apart of the plan. Not only is having my own business making me a better artist, but being an artist helps me to be a better businessman.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I consider myself and Afro-fusion artist, my music is inspired by my life and those lives around me. I grew up surrounded by music, and as a child I knew that music was my calling. It has been easy by no means, and it’s still an uphill battle. But one thing about YungM3tro is that I don’t know how to give up. Success is only a matter of time!
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I love African food, my favorite place in the city is Delight’s Ghanian Cuisine. The food there reminds me of my mothers cooking, and if you go there tell Mama Delight, YUNGM3TRO sent you!
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I’d like to give a shout-out to WestSide Creative Agency, AKA the WSCA Family. The collaborative efforts of everyone in the team is what made me the man I am today.
