Weekend Work - Young M.A.

Nicole’s health was deteriorating with every chemotherapy session, causing her to lose a bit of herself each time. As a huge fan of Hip Hop, her absence was felt when Young M.A. came to Shade 45 at Sirius XM studios. Young M.A. had a breakout year, and her viral sensation “OOOUUU” became a hit single, reaching number 19 on the US Billboard Hot 100. She had recently signed with 300 Entertainment and talked about leveraging social media to grow her fan base. I was thrilled to hear her speak and proud that she hailed from Brooklyn. Despite facing industry criticism for being a lesbian rapper, she used her platform to advocate for LGBTQ+ rights, making her especially admirable. Watching her navigate through fame and notoriety was fascinating. I was so engrossed that I forgot I was there to work. I became a real-time fan of hers, even though I hadn’t yet heard her mixtape. Her single played in every club across the city, but what captivated me the most was her grace and poise. Despite being hot right now, she exuded humility in the moments when the cameras weren’t on. I took a deep breath, refocused on my own career, and felt inspired by her story. Although she was younger than me, I found motivation in her success, hoping to someday see the world through the eyes of a rising star. The experience reminded me that success is attainable if I continue to work hard and strive for excellence. Young M.A.’s journey showed that authenticity and determination are critical in achieving success, regardless of industry critics or personal challenges.
