About Young M.A.
Raised in Brooklyn, within walking distance of Jay-Z and the late Notorious B.I.G.’s stomping grounds—M.A learned a lot in her formative years. The streets called her early, though losing her brother to violence forced M.A into a hard pivot that would change her life forever. After checking the temperature for her music through a handful of rough loosie cuts, she finally dropped off “OOOUUU” and it wasn’t long before she became a household name—landing coverage everywhere from Vogue to New York Times, as well as global ad campaigns with Google Pixel 2 and Beats By Dre.
M.A’s toured with 21 Savage, opened for Beyoncé, and found herself on her own global tour. She’s even made Forbes’ 30 Under 30 list for 2018 and received a proclamation from New York City. With M.A standing for “Me Always,” she’s cornered the market on unbridled authenticity—transparent in her life, her sexuality, her mistakes, her blessings. “OOOUUU” undoubtedly brought her there; triple platinum status, breaking the Billboard Top 10, 150,000 radio spins, and 310 million YouTube views on the video. But what comes next will keep her here, as M.A is playing the long game in bringing quality hip-hop to the forefront. This is M.A everyday, no compromise. And now it’s time to make herstory.
While M.A has remained consistent since her debut single dropped, her debut album marks a culmination of her experiences to date. Freestyles like “Who Run It,” “I Get The Bag” and “Thotiana” have grabbed millions of streams and views, along with her previous single “PettyWap” clocking in at over 69 million YouTube views helping her to cross over 1 billion streams on her independent catalog. But like the title of her latest multi-million single suggests, this is all “Praktice” for Herstory In the Making.
