Rising rap artist, Isaiah YL Stokes was born in Chester, Pennsylvania on August 4, 1990. Growing up with a musical family he learned to play drums and piano but never thought about rapping. After he heard his brother and cousin on a Philadelphia radio station he decided to try rapping himself. In the year 2002 he moved to Delaware and thats where his music really got its start.


At age 16 he hooked up with his former manager, Austin Daniels, and released his first mixtape called Get Outta My Lane. Releasing it on datpiff.com and getting good reviews from his peers he decided to start doing shows. His first show was at a bar in Delaware called Kildares. After performing he was told by people that he did a good job and was offered to perform at different cities in the tri state area of Delaware, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.


In November of 2013 he performed for Atlantic Records in Baltimore, Maryland. After performing for the label he wasgiven an opportunity to speak to , Anthony Thompson, a manager of an upcoming group called Climax, that was signed to Atlantic. After speaking with the manager and reps from the label and receiving great praise on his performance he decided to take his music to the next level.


Upon gaining success for his Atlantic Records performance he released a song called, Getting Live, and the song got the attention of the local radio station, Kiss 101.7 and DJs such as, DJ Big Ant and Meek Mills DJ, DJ Bran. The song earned him an interview as the first Delaware artist on the radio. Getting record spins and more supporters he released an EP called Fly Motivation. The EP was sold out in stores in his state such as, One Stop and Sams Music Connection. Also the EP received reviews online sites such asdatpiff.com with 5000+ listens and 150 downloads andon hotnewhiphop.com with 100 downloads. As a single for the EP he released a song called , Dont Feel That, and shot a video for it and it got 1000+ views on YouTube and he also shot an intro video for the EP that gained over 2000 views.


Currently he is working on a new mixtape called Motivation Music coming April 2nd and building a brand called YFM, which stands for Young Fly Motivated.
