Explain who you are for those who may not know
My name is Yvng Percept. I usually go by YP or Percept. I’m 18 years old from Kearns 801. Doing music has been my passion and I’m planning to make it big. Not many people know about Kearns but it’s what I’m putting on the map. When it comes to my music I put my heart into it, and I speak in a way that makes you want to keep listening and ask who is this kid.
Where are you from?
I’m from Kearns Utah, I grew up in Rose Park but my whole life I’ve been in Kearns. It’s so small it’s considered a township instead of a city.
What’s it like being from there?
It can be difficult at times because there is usually bad energy around. Other than that it’s good if you don’t have issues with people.
Who are your Influences?
I’m not influenced by other artists, but there are a few artists I enjoy listening to on a daily basis.
What makes you different from other artists?
I talk about situations that I’ve lived through. I bring all my energy to the beat and I’m careful about what I say, and the manner that it’s said in. I’m striving to be the best from my state “801”, and everyday is competition so I’m always at work. I’ll leave my phone on “DND” and just write shit and vibe. I’m versatile, always looking for new styles and stuff that people can relate to on a personal level. Majority of the day I’m always asking for criticism and insight on things I write.
How long have you been doing music?
I first started out with small freestyles at 9, but as soon as high school hit I was making beats off my computer. Around the 10th grade I started writing and making beats to my lyrics. I have been doing this for about 4 years now, and I’m still gonna do this till I’m where I wanna be.
How did it start and why?
It started because I had nothing else to do, I always wanted to do things differently than my siblings and other people around me. As soon as I realized my vibe for music I kept at it and I don’t have any other fallback because I don’t plan on failing.
What’s next for you?
Right now I’m in a movement called Legacy. That’s my team, and right now I’m still getting music done taking offers for collabs cause as soon as February hits I plan to be bigger than what I am. I plan to let the world see who I am and be the first to actually make it out of Utah.
Anything else you’d like to say?
I’d like to say for those who see this just remember my name cause I’m gonna be the biggest upcoming artist. Stay tuned…
