Interview with Maryland’s own…

Featured artist: Y’man Dog – Interview with Maryland’s own…

As part of our ongoing “Rap’s New Generation” series, today we sat down with the upcoming underground artist Y’man Dog from Oxon Hill to talk about his recent music, his upcoming projects, his career advice and his overall experiences being in the music industry and he did not disappoint…

Thanks for taking the time to talk with us, Y’man Dog! Let’s go back to the beginning of your career. How did you decide to become an artist?

Y’man Dog: I was motivated to become an artist from listening to early 2Pac, WU-Tang, Redman, music enlightened by how they articulated their lives lyrically.

From there it was freestyles until I became tired of not remembering the flows so that birthed the song writer in me. The rest is history!

My best advice to an artist would have to be…”You gotta be valiant and open-minded or life will drown you!”

What about concerts? Do you play live?

Yeah, I perform live often; I’m tenaciously studying booking to expedite more shows in spite of no agent/s but I’ve been making good traction…stay tuned!

Best punchline you ever wrote?

Think imma bitch, shit imma snap and prove that wrong; running down on ni**gas and burn em’ up like the match gone.

What are you currently working on? Did you release something in the past?

I have multiple previous works dated back to ’98 up to music that I’m currently producing slated for release this year all available for streaming. Website currently in production; stay tuned!

Last but not least: Would you sign a record contract with a major label?

Maybe; 😏 maybe not! Lls; too much to discuss here! My email is y.mandog@icloud.com is always open for discussion though. 😉

Any last words?

First and foremost I’d like to thank Jah the almighty creator for constantly providing me with strength, guidance, will, and opportunity. Next would have to be shouts out to the foundation, Forest Heights for providing a certified “proving grounds.” Last but not least I would like to thank my family, friends, fans, followers, supporters, colleagues, associates, and haters as well for each and everyone one of you have been instrumental in the fortifying of my brand and inspiring music.

Where can people follow you to stay up-to-date?
