Ydotc/Young C

Well i'm a 23 year old rapper/producer originally from Botswana but I've studied everywhere from Australia to the United states of America. I've gained my qualifications in Sound Engineering, Music Production and Business Management. I describe my music as emotional because I put everything into my music, whether it would be good, bad or ugly as an artist i believe keeping it real is very important.



Tell us about you and how you would you describe your "art"?

Well i'm a 23 year old rapper/producer originally from Botswana but I've studied everywhere from Australia to the United states of America. I've gained my qualifications in Sound Engineering, Music Production and Business Management. I describe my music as emotional because I put everything into my music, whether it would be good, bad or ugly as an artist i believe keeping it real is very important.

How long have you been making "art" and how did you get started?

I've been making music professionally since 2009 but I've been rapping since the age of twelve. How i got started was I used to freestyle over songs for my friends and surprisingly no one discouraged me even though and i must admit none of what i was saying made sense!

Do you come from an artistic background?

I was raised in music, my mother is an amazing singer, my aunt is too and so was my late Uncle. I guess you can say music is in my blood!

What inspires you? What are your influences (Who or What)?

What inspires me especially when i write is the chords in a beat, usually if i don't fall in love with it within the first five seconds of hearing it then i won't select it! But there are certain producers who can create instrumentals so crazy that as soon as i hear it I know that it was meant for me! My influences come from a variety of different genres, it could be rock,pop,rnb,house,opera .etc. Whatever genre that coincides with what i'm feeling at that particular moment in time is where i derive my inspiration from! As far as artists are concerned my biggest influence when i was growing up and still to this day is Michael Jackson, possibly the greatest entertainer that ever lived and to me his music is timeless!

What is your most proud accomplishment so far?
My most proud accomplishment was having my first video off my EP "Psychosis Diagnosis" The song is called "My Hour" which hit 100,000 views on youtube on its first day of release.

What are your tools for creating?

A pen and pad if not my blackberry and a cool drink on my side occasionally should help in getting the creative juices flowing.

What sets you apart from the others?

I just enjoy putting myself in my music, love it or hate it i believe that being yourself and not portraying an image you're not is the best thing to do as an artist.

Where are you trying to end up? (5 year plan?)

I see myself owning my own record label,my own studio, working with major label artists and two full length LP's released during that time-span.

What are your favorite things in life so far?
Besides obviously making music I enjoy working on my physique which includes anything from lifting weights to boxing, staying fit has become an important factor in my life.

If we gave you P1M what would you do with it?

To be honest most of it would go into building a state of the art recording studio and i'm not talking about buying a mic and two speakers in your mums basement!I'm talking about recording studio booths large enough to fit orchestras in it because it has always been my dream to create music using live instrumentation!

Any advice for people trying to do what you do?

All i can say is make sure you put your heart into developing your skill,find different ways of inspiring yourself and challenge yourself to grow as an artist.

Where can people buy/get a hold of your work?

They can check my reverbnation page: officialydotc
They can check my soundcloud page which is also officialydotc
Or they can check my official website for my facebook, twitter and youtube videos which is ydotc.com

How can people get in touch with you?
