VY MOON

VY MOON is a man of God who uses his positions as a youth pastor and a musician to spread the beautiful word. His latest single, “GET IT TOGETHER“, featuring his son, YOUNG DAL, is a shining example of that.

VY was introduced to music early in life. He was playing the keyboard and writing rap songs at a young age. He admits that life in Montgomery, Alabama wasn’t always easy and he endured some bumps in the road to get to this point in his life. “I have come along way. There was a time in my life when I was in these streets. I’ve grown and changed into a man of faith with different priorities. My focus is on God, my family and my music.”

He writes and produces Gospel/Christian rap music for himself and his family (his wife and son are also budding artists). “I enjoy writing and producing music with my family, it’s a lot of fun for all of us! If I had to choose between the two, I’d say producing music is my favorite. I have the freedom to groom each song to my liking. It is very rewarding putting a body of work together from beginning to end.”

Although he is a Christian rapper, VY listens to and is inspired by different genres of music. “I love to vibe out to some good Jazz or Reggae, Nipsey Hussle or J Cole, the clean versions of course (laughing). And JAY Z, 2PAC, UGK, T.I. and OUKAST are all artists I respect that have influenced my style. My music embodies their same depth and passion. I dig Kendrick Lamar’s style too, he brought fun and creativity back to the game.”

Being an artist who is content in his own lane and not competing with others only boosts VY’s inventiveness. “The fact that I am not worried about competing for a number one spot or comparing myself to other artists really expands my creativity. My knack for fervid storytelling makes me unique. I take my listeners through a journey. It’s almost like watching a movie when you listen to my albums. You can visualize what I’m rapping about.”

When asked what VY thinks about today’s music scene, his answer was simple, “Vulnerable is trendy now, which is great. I applaud these young artists for not being afraid to be themselves. I find it awesome to be able to express myself and not have to choose between being vulnerable and masculine.”

VY recently started his own company and record label, ‘HE DID IT, LLC, and he’s not stopping there. “I plan to use my role in this music industry to do three things…inspire -be a light bulb to others, empower -create the tools to help others follow their dreams and encourage others to keep pushing forward, no matter how hard it gets, and do what’s in their hearts.”

VY MOON will be releasing a new single in May to get us warmed up for his brand new EP set to drop in November. “The listeners are hungry for new music and I’m going to deliver! Everything happens in God’s perfect timing. To quote the late great Nipsey Hussle, Success comes when opportunity meets preparation.”
