Biography

Born in South Florida, a Miami native, Michael Young Yearby learned the importance of integrity, love for family, and excellence in all we do. This led him taking an active role in servicing his country by enlisting into the United States Air Force. While stationed overseas at Kadena AB, Okinawa, Japan the purpose and passion for exceptional musicianship became his charge. He explains I always enjoyed composing poetry in different formats, but never thought I was any good. But, all that changed when he started to share his poetry with the inmates at the Camp Hansens Correctional Facility during the weekly Brig Christian Fellowship (BCF) conducted by Pastor Dominic Guerra. The inmates enjoyed the poetry; so much in fact, Michael started to perform his poetry, free styling at various street evangelism concerts which caught the eye of local Hip-Hop Producer Kenny Williams of Outta Step Music. This collaboration brought forth the EP known as The Shinobis Son. The EP spawned seven tracks that were received well within the Hip-Hop community being featured in nine countries and received over 20,000+ plays/downloads world-wide in the fall of 2010. That experience allowed Michael to self-produce Beautiful Muzik Mixtape Vol. 1 and Gaijin EP, as well as the time to experiment musically, defining him as a breakout artist. He reflects There was a lot of trials and tribulations that went into making the records. The songwriting became more personal, and that was reflected in every lyric in the recordings. I recorded about twenty-nine songs for both of the projects combined while only twelve were chosen with five interludes by Pastor Rick Barnett for Beautiful Muzik and four were chosen with one instrumental track for Gaijin. I spent months perfecting my sound, refining and defining my music until I thought it was just right. That gave Michael notoriety as innovative Hip-Hop artist with depth and integrity for his rhyming and writing abilities in the fall of 2011, which Michael performed under the stage name M.Y. Tha Vizion before simply changing it to Young. Michael is currently stationed at McConnell AFB, Wichita, Kansas. He recently released New Reality EP and the project has been highlighted on websites (Rapzilla, Absolute Punk, etc) and received considerable national radio play on seven radio stations and one radio network (House FM, WREH, WPOZ, etc). Michael explains The project will be distribute to all online music stores (iTunes, Amazon, etc.) world-wide July 2, 2013." Michael states Music, my music has always been and will always be an expression of freedom, freedom to explore the very chambers of Gods Heart. Freedom to shout, freedom to dance, freedom that was freely given by another, explored by few and documented by many. My music is not bounded by culture preference or industry standards but is centered on the life of a broken and humbled man.

Verse 1
My heart is feels... that energy

They talking past, but I see the present
I know are future, cause I read the reference

Nobody in this world, no angel, no man
We step off in the church and we having so much fun

Mask of Dreams

Written By: Michael Yearby

Pre-Verse 1
Premeditated murder she ask if it's right
She turn from that light to seek that dark night

Verse 1
I feel that pain in my heart this is real talk
I'm on that boardwalk trying to take that noose off
Shackles on my arms while my mind carry boulders
This a cold world but I think it's getting colder
Men becoming hova's they lost to Jehovah
They playing sweet with their words smoking on that herb
If life's a lady then I guess she stay up on that curb
Yeah she's politicking slave to them politicians
They talking fast money but they don't make sense
A bullet to the brain that's how they make hits
They whisper in my ear, sweet lullabies
The tone has a hint of truth but filled with lies
Look in my eyes (Look in my eyes) you see I'm troubled
We sleeping with death and she saying I love you
But the truth be told she's in descries
A demon in reality she hypnotize

Chorus
I see the world she's a girl living on em' streets
With her fangs out looking for a bit to eat
I'm just dreaming...(echo)
With my heart exposed my soul decompose
Into a plant that lost all will to grow
I'm just dreaming...(echo)

Pre-Verse 2
You seen it all but you tell me that my pain ain't real
Illusions in my life, David Copperfield

Verse 2
My life is good so can you tell me why I feel this way
The truth is black or white so why I'm feeling grey
I'm lost can I say without condescending tone
This a poem that was written in a broken home
Am I on my own cause my mind is steady racing
An fear is looking at me like a masked Jason
That lady in the water so I wish her well
She fell from the heavens so she has entered hell
I know the pain is real I see in my brain
With thoughts of suicide written on a sinners frame
The same story being spoken to my inner ear
Speaking love but seasoned with a hint fear
I'm looking for the truth but I live a lie
Some fall from the faith while other choose to rise
An what I see inside looks like a filthy bride
With tears in her eyes numb to the suicide

Chorus
I see the world she's a girl living on em' streets
With her fangs out looking for a bit to eat
I'm just dreaming...(echo)
With my heart exposed my soul decompose
Into a plant that lost all will to grow
I'm just dreaming...(echo)

Beautiful Nightmare feat. Alex Isaak

Written By: Michael Yearby

Chorus - Alex Isaak
I'm on top of the world...
An ain't thinkin' about coming down
All the way in em' clouds
Can't nobody tell me 'bout...
Tell me 'bout my limits...
In these beautiful nightmares
Tell me 'bout my limits...
In these beautiful nightmares
Tell me 'bout my limits... (beautiful nightmares)

Verse 1 - Young
Open up my heart to revile a dirty closet
A slave in the mind cause I'm still stuck in this bondage
Where do I go to find peace in this upper room
Killed off my flesh but I still have to buy a tomb
Doom from the start of it, life dug a bigger pit
Biggest fish in the pond still can't find significant
Hole in my heart and I think I need to fill a void
Wooden like a puppet but I'm wishing just to be a boy
Growin' into a man but what man do you really see
Gain the whole world but he's lost his eternity
The pain that I feel got me caught up in the system
I'm trying to claim rape but I'm far from being a victim
Looking at my family tree asking what this branch will be
Another fallin' leaf that's caught up in this autumn breeze
I don't know, but I see it as a lesson learned
Like a baby who finds out that fire burns

Chorus - Alex Isaak

Verse 2 - Young
Laying in my bed and I contemplate my very fate
Walking on that narrow road but wonder if it's really straight
Asking if I found hope love is speaking to my heart
Will you let me in or will you keep me in the dark
Out on the road doing shows trying to be a king
Marching in the streets but I rarely ever had a dream
Seein' my best friend laying down in that casket
Got me screaming out Lord are we really bastards
Knocks on my door so I rarely ever go home
Atmosphere messed up got a weak ozone
On the phone with my lady wonder why her heart ache
Couldn't be a man and eat everything on her plate
Demonstrate anger and not patience's towards my family
Wonder if my boys will ever be men of integrity
I don't know, but I guess I have to wait and see
An be a man of the man who is guiding me, yeah

Chorus - Alex Isaak

Move On feat. Mister Hampton

Written By: Michael Yearby

Chorus - Mister Hampton

Verse 1
That girl she has a heart but all see is pain
A bullet in the brain and two more in the frame
Change, why, is she left to die
She speak that love love but they saying goodbye
Oh, is she destine for that slavery
Girl in them chains but that change came eventually
Heart still alive but she's dead to this century
She says he knows it all but living in a mystery
Will, she ever see the sunshine
Behind the lines of a enemy that keeps you blind
Now, I wonder what you call it
Lady in that mirror and she's looking like a sergeant
Called to that duty as she looking for that battlefield
Love of her life made more than her body ill
But she still keeps the porch light on
Sittin' in the chair as she's waits by the phone

Chorus - Mister Hampton

Verse 2
That boy he got that pain I see it in his heart
He looking for light while he stay in the dark
He stay up on his pimpin' He said his pimpin' strong
Stay with a yellow bone so why he's all alone
So while he's all alone he's searching for his relevance
Letter in the mail came knocking on his residents
Tears hit his eyes as he cried for that love affair
He looks up, his life spared
He wondered, will he ever know the meanin'
To that lost love that kept his heart beatin'
She's a pretty girl and he met her on that battlefield
Sergeant told that boy you got to plan before you take the hill
You know the deal she says to him
The "us" that we cherish just became a them
He got scared and he ran away
Will he ever find a future in his yesterday, gone

Chorus - Mister Hampton
