Young J Mac

Exclusive Interview 


What inspires you the most when you create? I feel the most inspired when I come across an instrumental that I vibe really well with. This is honestly the hardest part about the music creating process for me. But once I find the right beat to fit my mood/energy at that particular moment, is when I can create the best track possible.


Who are your top 5 influences? When it comes to flow and style I definitely look up to Big Sean. His lyricism and ability to change flows in songs so seamlessly is something that is very impressive. I also really follow, Eric Bellinger, Bryson Tiller, Chris Brown and Jacquees. As my sound transitions into more melodic and catchy hooks, I really study how these artists create such great tracks.


When are your new projects coming out? I don’t have any mixtapes or albums in the works quite yet, but I am constantly working on singles to put out for my fans. With my style still growing and evolving, I like the freedom of releasing singles because each one can be very different from the last.


What helped you get into music? In reality, there’s a handful of close friends that I had at the time who showed me a lot of love and support when I wrote my first remix to a song I really liked. Ever since then, I’ve been creating my own songs and recording at studios. Looking at the progress I’ve made and the amount of people I’ve been able to share my music with throughout all the streaming platforms has helped me continue my passion for music. What is one thing you would tell your fans? I wish I had a more original answer than “Thank you” but I truly mean that. Going from posting my music on SoundCloud, getting less than 50 plays, to having my music on big Spotify playlists and receiving messages from fans saying they shared my music at a party, or even just with their friends and that they are now fans as well is such an amazing feeling. So thank you to anyone who has ever shared or even just listened to any of my music, It means more than you know.


What are your biggest goals for 2019? Consistency. I want to be able to constantly have new music for everyone that enjoys my songs. Because I haven’t released a project, I understand that people want more from me, and in 2019 I plan on giving much more. Not just music, but insights behind the music, music videos, interviews and everything in between.
