Y.I. Mogul New Exclusive Artist Spotlight Interview

  1. First + Last Name

Y.I. Mogul

2. Hometown

Dayton, Ohio

3. Rough Upbringing? Past trauma? Near-death experience? 

My Real Dad died when I was 7 years old, abusive step dad caused me to not truly live a happy childhood. I still suffer trauma from that. Never had a real friend before or somebody who genuinely cared about me vs what I could do for them. Got crossed by a friend that I thought was my brother later in life and it fucked up my trust to this day.

Got engaged to my longtime girlfriend just to get cheated on! Lost my oldest sister in September 2021 and it crushed me. I promised myself I would go harder with my real passion which is music. She always loved and supported me. Her Name is Tiffaney and I will never let her spirit die. I’ve sold drugs which caused me to be robbed at gunpoint twice and both times thought I was dead. I’m a true testimony of God’s grace and greatness.

4. How old were you when you first fell in love with music?

I was 13 when I knew I could sing, 14 I knew I could rap. In 7th grade I was a full music machine with passion.

5. What triggered your love for music?

Beyond just tapping in with the inner vibe of my talents, Ice Cube and the westcoast connection really raised my influence with the Culture. 64 Chevy impalas with hydraulics and dope tracks.

Young Jeezy, J. Cole, Kanye West, Ice Cube, Jay Z to name a few.

My versatility, realness, I bring lyricism, creativity, and style. I tell real stories and speak for the people. If my music can touch 1 soul in a positive way I have won. I’m definitely a true 1 of 1.

15. What legacy do you want to leave? How do you want to be remembered?

I want to be remembered as a trendsetter, a real go-getter. Somebody who helped others, and always added great value to the universe. A true pioneer. One who achieved every goal he set. A trailblazer for believers.

A philanthropist, mogul with great reach. I want to go down as one of the greatest entertainers to ever live. To leave a mark like MLK Jr, Micheal Jackson, Jay Z, and Malcolm X.
