Def Jam Artist. For YFL Kelvin, hip-hop is the soundtrack to his struggle. "My story is rags to riches," the 21-year-old explains. The Cleveland native has found solace in music since his father was gunned down—in an accidental shooting—when he was just five. "I became a rapper when my father got killed." Inspired by artists like Lil Wayne, 50 Cent and Drake, the rapper remembers how he funneled suffering and anger into rap. "I knew I was destined then. Something good was going to play out from all the tragedy that I’ve been through." Taking his rap name from his biological father and the aspirational acronym "Young, Flashy, Lifestyle," Kelvin began recording out of his home studio. Kelvin inked a deal with Def Jam Records in August and will release his first project in November. Out of Here is led by the "NASDAQ" remix with Moneybagg Yo.
YFL Kelvin is looking for beats for a new project. At present, we don't have any details as to what the new project is.
