known in the Northern California music scene with mixtape releases and
performances throughout the region. He once opened for multi platinum
artist, The Game, at the well- known Observatory venue in Costa Mesa,
CA and for Chief Keef in Fresno. YV Baby’s wide range of musical
influences include R&B sensation ‪Gerald Levert‬ to Hip Hop icon Tupac to
some of today’s platinum selling artist like Drake, Lil Boosie, and ‪Kevin
Gates. ‬He credits his family for exposing him to a wide variety of musical
genres. Outside of music, YV Baby enjoys cooking and writing poetry. His
debut album will be released this fall titled “Worth the Weight” by Str8
