Who are your top 5 influences?
2. 50 Cent
3. Lil Wayne
Mind you this is NOT my top 5 artist just those I feel I studied and got influenced from. Had to put Eminem twice.
When are your new projects coming out?
We will be releasing the music video to the first single, “Is It Them (Oh My God)”, off the collaboration mixtape with me and Jayydawg in the summer. Stay tuned…
What helped you get into music?
Being a hyper creative kid who always took movies or TV Shows and songs and turned them into my own thing. Plus I’ve always had a natural talent for writing teachers accused me of plagiarism all the time in high school.
What is one thing you would tell your fans?
I love you. Stay tuned…
What are your biggest goals for 2016?
Music videos, website, more shows, more fans, sell merch…I vowed to do a task daily that will advance my career.
Born D’Lante Dozshon Boyce, Yo Mans TAY™ wrote his first song titled, “I Love You” at age 6. He stood up on the dresser and performed it for his mother and older brother. During his preteen years, D’Lante & his neighborhood friends discovered Fruity Loops and started making instrumentals and formed rap group, D-Towns’ Finest. The group shoveled snow and gathered enough funds to purchase a Rockband microphone, microphone stand and headphones from the mall and downloaded a 30 day trial of ACID Pro™ and began recording their album in the closet.
From ages 14 to 18, D’Lante continued recording music under the alias Yung Tay with the new rap group, CashHounds, mixing and engineering the recordings, learning as he went along, using Protools. As a group CashHounds released two mixtapes, “The Preview” in 2011 and “Our Year All Year: A New Breed” in 2013. Our Year All Year had a strong buzz in the suburbs of Michigan, one of D’Lante’s proudest moments was their mixtape release party at Tarboosh Hookah Lounge in Troy, MI. The group had brought out at least 75 teens.
