A song of pure beauty, Yung Gli$t releases latest single ‘Kiyomi’
COLUMBUS, OH – An up and coming artist with the goal to inspire those around him, Yung Gli$t is bringing his music to the people with a sound that is truly his own. His latest single, “Kiyomi,” is only one of his many steps to becoming a top name in the Hip Hop industry.
Music came naturally to Yung Gli$t, growing up in a household that was always full of new sound. “I used to just like music when I was growing up. It came naturally. My mom would always be playing music usually artists like Nas. And as I got used to hearing music like that, music started to become a bigger and bigger part of my life.”
Much of Yung Gli$t’s influences come from artists like Tupac, but he also pulls a lot of inspiration from his family. “My father passed away when I was younger and I draw a lot of inspiration from him because he made music before I was born.”
Yung Gli$t’s sound is a unique blend of Hip Hop. “I would say my sound is a little bit futuristic. My music sounds like the kind of thing where you can’t just go out and replicate it. I don’t think anyone is doing the exact same thing as me. You have to listen to my music to get that certain sound because I have a different kind of delivery of my lyrics. I have a unique sound.”
“Kiyomi,” Yung Gli$t’s latest single is quite literally named after pure beauty. “When I started this song, I knew it was going to be important. The reason I named it “Kiyomi” is that Kiyomi actually means “Pure Beauty” and I named it that because it was the first thing that came to my mind when I heard the beat for the first time. One of the inspirations for the lyrics of this song was actually my baby’s mother. We had a little bit of a problem and we were in the middle of a scramble before I started working on the lyrics. I think that played into what came out of that session a bit.”
“My main goal as a musician is to get good music out there. I want to work on getting more of a following and expand my social media, especially Twitter. I really just want to be someone who inspires others. I want to show them that they can do it.” Yung Gli$t grew up in an area where there is an abundance of creativity, but not enough love for other’s art. He hopes in great part to inspire the people of Columbus to see that there is room for everyone to do what they love.
Along with his ventures as a musician, Yung Gli$t is focused on fashion. He hopes to help inspire more people to express themselves through their appearance.
Yung Gli$t is working to put out more music in the coming year, including an album that is currently in the works. As of right now, the music video for “Kiyomi” will be coming out soon and will be an exciting thing to look forward to.
