Now, he can add a gripping actor of a powerful new drama to the list. “Mixed Girl” is a film the musician starred in, not only expanding his resume, but also showing a new side of the energetic rapper. It tells a story of a man who learns he has a daughter after years of neglect from her mother. This movie shows the journey of him stepping up and doing what’s right by a child who needs him now more than ever.

He got a taste of a drama-themed script when he played a role in “All Eyez On Me”, the telling biopic on the life of iconic rapper, Tupac Shakur. Though this is his biggest role, J Young MDK remained committed to putting on the performance of his life throughout production. As one of the co- producers, he was also able to add his creative influence to the movie.

Typically, J Young MDK can be seen amassing a large crowd on an average night.

He has also created tantalizing albums such as Aqua, Black, and White which were all released the same year! He created history with two of the aforementioned by releasing them on the same day!

Q. How’d you get into the music industry to begin with? I started in St Louis, and it started out as a hobby.

Q. Why would an artist get dropped from a major label? Does it all just come down to the bottom line? An artist would get dropped by not meeting expectations versus the risk of the investment.
