Name: YC The Cynic

Age: 22

Hometown: The Bronx, NY

I grew up listening to: Rebel Diaz and Homeboy Sandman.

Most people don’t know I: Teach MC’ing and Songwriting at a community center that I’m a founding member of, called the RDACBX.

My style’s been compared to: Mos Def and Nas.

My standout records and/or moments to date have been: My most recent album, GNK, is definitely the standout moment of my career. To pack out the legendary SOBs, and have Peter Rosenberg introduce me, was insane. People sang all the words. We flexed as a family.

My goal in Hip-Hop is: Sustainability. Social reform. Quality control. I want to do everything I’m doing now. With more people watching.

I’m gonna be the next: I’m going to be the next MC you’ll be excited to tell all of your friends about. Someone you tell everyone you heard him first.

To check out more of my music go to: Twitter (@YCtheCynic), Facebook, and my website.
