YANK$ affinity for music was always clear but it wasn’t until he stumbled into a friend’s studio, after a wild college party, that he realized what he wanted to give the world: his music. In 2017, he released his first EP, self-titled, YANK$, that peaked press interest, garnered local and international acclaim, and is still a huge success among his growing fan base. The EP is imbued with stylistic finesse, a sound that is unapologetically carefree. YANK$ emblematic quirky and energetic flow is a beacon for listeners searching for something uniquely “theirs” in the crowded hip-hop scene. Growing up with his mother in Los Angeles and father in New York, YANK$ draws his influences from each city. This exposure makes him a compound mixture of the wavy, smooth, and chill vibes from the west while also bringing the lyrical precision, and moxie from the east. YANK$ contributions to the music world includes countless singles, a full-length project in 2018 titled The Confirmation, and four additional EPs (The Moment, To Be Continued 1 and 2, and the Slaps Vol 1). YANK$’s music is also featured on NBA 2K22, ESPN, the hit Netflix show Raising Dion, HBO, Clif Bar, CBS and more.
