Malcom Jubilee, AKA YNG Mac Jay
Malcom Jubilee was born on October 2, 2000, at the Eastern Salisbury shore Maryland. Like many influential rap artists, his life story starts with him growing up in a broken family and spending his time in the streets at a very young age. Life for him and his father was not easy and there were many instances where he came in contact with drugs and bad role models. A situation many get stuck in for life.
Deliberate choice to do better
At some point, he started to realize he had to make a choice: either continue on his current path or do better. Be better. From that moment on he distanced himself from his old lifestyle. Using his past experiences and energy to further ignite his passion and talent for what he loves most: rap music.
Making the shift
YNG Mac Jay will always tell you that he was not alone when he made this shift. As a praying man he is convinced that it was with the help of God that he turned things around. He "prayed to God and came to terms with his passion for rap.", as he will tell you.
