Bio

James Thomas a.k.a. YB was born in Columbus, Georgia on September 2, 1992. A couple years after his birth, he and his parents relocated back to Detroit, Michigan. As the years passed, growing up in the city of Detroit was not easy for this young prodigy. While trying to choose the right path, music became an outlet for YUNG BOSS. At the age of 13 YB began to write songs after being influenced by observing another kid rhyme for the girls at school. Using simple industry instrumentals, he re-made the songs with his own lyrics and style. Soon after he began this musical journey, his father became really involved with his music and began taking him to the studio and purchasing beats so he could make original songs and therefore find/create his own sound. YB became well known in his school for his musical talent by being one of the first there too not only write verses and songs but actually record and distribute CD’s laced with his music as began to emerge and evolve as an ARTIST. At 14 YB moved to Phoenix, Arizona in search of a better life, and immediately started his music takeover by selling over 1000 mixtapes in the Phoenix streets unknown to him and gaining over 250,000 plays on myspace. YB continued his success in the west by doing live shows as well as visiting Detroit from time to time to do the same therefore drawing a buzz from the east to the west coast. YB continues to write and record as much as possible in order to continue to improve his skills. Now YUNG BOSS is 18 and still working hard at his music career. By blending different genres and styles of music anyone could get caught up listening to the melodic sounds and impressive word play of this kids music. YB sites Jay-Z, Biggie Smalls, and Drake as his musical influences and states if given the chance to collaborate with any artist in the game it would be Jay-Z.
