Young Mack was born as Michael McCoy in Charlotte, NC; an independent hip hop/pop artist. Lady Tha ProducHer—CEO of studionoize.com—said, in a December 21st feature, that “Young Mack is the dude you want to get to know more of. When I first heard what he’s like behind the microphone, I was pleased with his suave uniqueness, and vocal delivery…He has the complete package which makes him one the industry will continue to embrace.”
Having an abundant appreciation for music, it was not until making his fist song he realized that a career as a performing artist was his calling. Young Mack has dedicated himself to success, heart and soul immediately. Whether it is with a major label or through the indie scene, musical success is what he wants out of life.
Young Mack has made great progress towards his goal to be a successful recording artist. “The Real McCoy”, his freshman effort, is available through iTunes. He has been interviewed on blogtalkradio.com several times. He has starred in two movies, in “Without Hope” and Chickenheart. He has done three commercials for KFC, Wrangler Jeans and a law firm. Finally, he was just named as Say It LOUD’s Best Solo Indie Artist of 2010.
Mack places special significance on songs of his like “Army Strong” and “We Gotta Change”. Two of his cousins were sent to Iraq and he dedicated “Army Strong” to them so that they would know how much their sacrifice is appreciated and that they would be missed. “We Gotta Change” speaks on the kind of moral shift society needs to make to avoid falling from grace.
Currently, he is working on two albums which he hopes to release through a label. The first, entitled “The Prince is Here”. The second is called “Acoustic”, promising to spearhead his development out of the rap/hip-hop genre.
