EDMONTON, Alberta, May 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Chart-topping rap artist Young M.A will be performing at The Ranch Roadhouse on Thursday, May 18.
Hailed as the "arrival of major rap talent" by Stereogum, this Brooklyn MC has been rapping since the age of nine. Her undeniable skills were first shared with a major audience in 2014, when her "Brooklyn (Chiraq Freestyle)" video garnered more than one million views on YouTube, going viral in part due to a cynical detractor who shared the video along with his negative and hateful commentary. M.A chose not to give credence to the commentator, and now the video is basking in more than 8.6 million hits.
Now Young M.A is stepping out of the realm of viral sensation and into bona fide artistry, beginning with her latest release 'SleepWalkin' and current smash single, "OOOUUU," which is RIAA certified 3x platinum. With the record tearing up the clubs, she's seen support from the likes of Beyoncé, Alicia Keys, Swizz Beatz, 50 Cent, LaLa, Jadakiss, Nicki Minaj, Meek Mills, French Montana and FunkFlex. It's no wonder Billboard, Vogue, MTV, The Fader, New York Times, Complex, Rolling Stone and Revolt recently named her a top artist to watch in 2017.
"Young M.A's rise to stardom is only beginning," says The Ranch Roadhouse co-owner Jesse Kupina. "She's going to be a huge star and we're really excited to give people the chance to watch her perform at The Ranch."
Young M.A will be accompanied by a local all-female lineup of talent, dance performances by Bad Bitch Mentality, and DJed music provided by DJ Game Girl.
