      Young M.A


      Ever since Young M.A set the streets on fire with her introductory blazer OOOUUU, the Brooklyn-bred rapper-slash-entrepreneur has checked items off a bucket list that most dream about. However, with the sunshine comes the rain, and M.A is geared to tell all on her long-awaited debut album Herstory In The Making.Raised in Brooklyn, within walking distance of Jay-Z and the late Notorious B.I.G.s stomping groundsM.A learned a lot in her formative years. The streets called her early, though losing her brother to gun violence forced M.A into a hard pivot that would change her life forever. After checking the temperature for her music through a handful of rough loosie cuts, she finally dropped off OOOUUU and it wasnt long before she became a household namelanding coverage everywhere from Vogue to New York Times, as well as global ad campaigns with Google Pixel 2 and Beats By Dre. A lot of new experiences have happened for me, the young artist admits. I came from the streets and building my own fan base. I was always just trying tobreak through. And then it happened. It was a sigh of relief, she says. This was everything weve been fighting for.M.As toured with 21 Savage, opened for Beyonc, and found herself on her own global tour. Shes even made Forbes 30 Under 30 list for 2018 and received a proclamation from New York City. With M.A standing for Me Always, shes cornered the market on unbridled authenticitytransparent in her life, her sexuality, her mistakes, her blessings. OOOUUU undoubtedly brought her there; triple platinum status, breaking the Billboard Top 10, 150,000 radio spins, and 310 million YouTube views on the video. But what comes next will keep her here, as M.A is playing the long game in bringing quality hip-hop to the forefront. This is M.A everyday, no compromise. And now its time to make herstory.While M.A has remained consistent since her debut single dropped, her debut album will mark a culmination of her experiences to date. Freestyles like Who Run It, I Get The Bag and Thotiana have grabbed millions of streams and views, along with her previous single PettyWap clocking in at over 69 million YouTube views helping her to cross over 1 billion streams on her independent catalog. But like the title of her latest multi-million single suggests, this is all Praktice for Herstory In the Making.The game has been good to her. Fans have showed love through millions over social media and sold out shows, along with legends bringing M.A out at festivals. Theres been a lot of opportunities, and of course a lot of money, M.A says. But then theres the downside: you lose a lot of people that were once around you once their true colors start to show. With Herstory In The Making, M.A has returned to her core, reflecting on the ups and downs of her now semi-charmed life. I had to snap back into reality and remember what I was doing this for in the first place, she reflects. I had to bring it back to myself. Herstory In the Making has taken on multiple forms since M.A first devised the concept years back. I just felt like I needed more to talk about, she says. I wanted to drop the album, but people were pulling me in all different directions. I felt like I didnt even have time to create it, because I was stuck in the limelight and trying to understand the business. I finally had to get a breath of fresh air and focus on this music. The product is no holds barred.Youre gonna get the truth, M.A explains of Herstory. Youre gonna get the cocky joints, the slick talk joints where I talk my talk, like my latest single, BIG, but then Im gonna get personal. Real personal. Thats why this album is called Herstory, because its about all sides of me. Tracks like Car Confessions bring innermost life reflections from the drivers seat. I used to write music in my car a lot, she adds, and for some reason when Im in my car I feel like the rhymes just flow and I can write one of the best songs ever. I wrote this in the car as well! Others include an empowerment anthem about women being happy with who they are and being independent, just loving themselvesnot needing any man or woman to hold them down. In the midst of releasing her debut album, which charted as the #7 Hip Hop album in the country, and eclipsed 110,000 album equivalent sales; M.A has also formed the Kweens Foundation with her mother, focusing on assisting single mothers and low-income families as well as reaching out to parents who have lost their children to street violence. Its for women and for menKings and QueensKweens, she says. I got my mother involved because she sadly lost her son, my brother, in 2009 and this is something for her to get into and give her a little relief and meet other mothers who have been in that situation so theyre not alone. Everything M.A achieves is autobiographical, right down to philanthropy. No matter how much success you have in this life, you still go through those struggles and still go through that pain.With businesses, charities, and a new chapter in her career, now is the perfect time for Young M.A to bring fans her most intimate work to date. People will hear this album and say, I had no idea she was going through all that, M.A expresses about Herstory In the Making. I dont put myself out there on social media. I save it for the music, and I write it all. This is all me.
