Today we’d like to introduce you to YungM3tro.
YungM3tro, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
Music has always been present throughout my life, but I started to focus on it going into my junior year of college. To really fight for something and to push for it, you have to know it’s your purpose, and for me that is music. I say this because, it’s not only about beats and a melody, it’s about the impact, the lessons, the relief and stories that you can give to somebody, anywhere listening. Day by day I see myself growing into a Shepard, through my struggle and through my gains I have developed a flock. I am GREAT, but I am much greater because of my team. You know one thing you don’t see is people giving attributions to all the systems it takes to make it, and get what you need done. I am very grateful to have learned and gained to where now I am not just a leader, but also a director. It all started by taking path that follows my passion. Where I’m at currently at, I am at a place I’m ready to give people a feel of who I am, where I come from, and more importantly the African Diaspora. Yung M3tro is the name, Entertainment’s the game!
We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
At first, it was not easy, and I say this because I was on my own and I was alone. As a lone wolf, whether you like it or not, without your pack you’re under attack. People are taking advantage of you, being looked as lesser than the star that you are. People look down on you. Support is bumpy, people are waiting for you to fail. Sometimes not having money to support yourself or your craft. But now I have found my pack.
Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your business?
The company is called Westside Creative Agency (WSCA), and it’s a collective of creatives where we have artists, photographers, videographers, live band, models, dancers, designers and stylists. We specialize in making top quality work and bringing a story to life, whether it’s through the writing, recording, visuals, or marketing. We’re known for quality. I am most proud of the passion that everyone has for their craft and the company, everyone put in their one hundred percent.
If we knew you growing up, how would we have described you?
I’ve always been energetic and creative. I was obviously involved in music, but sports was also a big part of my childhood. I could never be still or stay in one place, I was always on the move.
