Strength of will combines with powerful work ethic to help propel new Midwest artist into national spotlight
MILWAUKEE, WI – Anybody can succeed if they focus and have a strong mind.
That’s the message that up-and-coming artist Young Q-Dogg wants to send the world through his music. Hailing from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, this young African-American rapper and producer is using his music to tell his story in ways that will inspire others to do whatever it takes to make a better life.
“Everything starts with your mentality,” he said. “I’ve been doing music for about 16 years and from the very beginning, my mantra has been to live at will, love every special surrounding. It’s pretty much a lifestyle. And sometimes you have to go around certain rules to have success at what you want.”
That message rings loud and clear through much of Young Q-Dogg’s music. As a songwriter, engineer and producer, he has the assets of a businessman but the mentality of an artist. Growing up in a poor family living in a bad neighborhood, he turned to music at a young age to help him stay out of trouble and chase after dreams. From hustling on the streets and embracing the mentality of a thug, to fixing his mistakes and pushing away that negative lifestyle, Q-Dogg’s story is one that can inspire even the toughest of critics.
“I want to tell the world that no matter who you are, anyone can succeed,” he said. “All you have to do is try, and the harder you work the more it pays off.”
Through his music, he tells stories of how he grew up – the struggles, the frustrations and the hard times that he overcome to get to where he is today. Those messages pair with a smooth and cool sound underneath a soulful tone that is undeniably one-of-a-kind.
His new single “Momma” puts that original sound on full display. Featuring fellow artist Mary Marie, the song is simply a dedication to mothers all around the world. It’s a soulful, mellow vibe that begs to be listened to over and over again. It’s also a song that echoes Young Q-Dogg’s desire to lift up women and inspire them to be independent and strong. Radio Play Today had in fact reviewed the single and concluded that it is an awesome track and is definitely ready to be played on the airwaves.
Following “Momma” which is currently available across all streaming platforms, Young Q-Dogg is planning on dropping a follow-up mixtape to his 2016 project “Q Ruption.” It will be called “Q Ruption 2” and is slated to drop toward the end of the summer. He also completed an EP entitled “Premortal” and is available on all streaming platforms. And towards the end of the year, Young Q-Dogg is set to release the album “Now Until Later”.
