Inspired to succeed in music by loved ones who believed in him that are no longer here on the physical earth, Yung Shetty wants his music to live on in there memory.After losing his cousin in 2005 to a murder homicide, he was sentenced to 18 months in the penitentiary for drug and gun charges. Throughout that time he and his mother developed a bond stronger than ever. Helping him mentally deal with his loss and incarceration, all the while pushing him towards music upon his release, her encouragement would end there due to her unexpected passing from a brain aneurism. Now he’s more focused than ever to make two of his biggest fans proud.
Separated from the crop of new up and coming artist due to his versatility, Shetty steps outside the box more often than most upcoming artists. Able to compose a viable song to a Hip Hop beat, Techno, Country, Edm, Or Rock, he understands music and people so can tap into almost anybody’s frequency. Having already worked with Lil Flip and Young Scooter as well as a host of producers from California, Ohio, Georgia, South Carolina, ect., Shetty has a number of projects in the works.
Currently working on an edm ep (Urban Psychedelia), Hip-Hop EP produced by Ohio natives Fly Union (#FlyShitOnly), an EP for the ladies (Love and Hip Hop), and Money & Muzik 2; he already has 2 projects completed and scheduled for release in the 2nd and 3rd qtr of 2013. The other 3 EP’s are expected to drop the 4th qtr with Money & Muzik 2 dropping the first qtr of 2014.
With the goals for his career including International recording artist/songwriter status, the owning of his own record label, going platinum, and creating jobs and opportunities for others who want to be successful, he’s definitely making it happen. Looking to build on his already tiresome grind he’s personally distributed over 10,000 hard copies by hand, 20k+ views on livemixtapes.com. Hoping to gain a strong enough buzz to generate some revenue to operate more effectively and reach more people in 2013, he’s an artist about his craft.
