Brennan Thomas Martin is a rising rap artist going by the name YRKDaRapper. He was born to a single mother on January 5th, 1998. He was born and raised in Neptune, New Jersey with his siblings. His mother worked hard to provide for him and his siblings, making sure that they wanted for nothing. The community YRKDaRapper’s mother raised them in also provided the youth with resources and opportunities so that students in the area could have the best education. And the children growing up in the area support each other and come together like a big family to encourage each other to make positive decisions. Growing up, YRKDaRapper’s community didn’t let music negatively influence them. Instead the youth let the music tell a story about the good and bad things going on around them. 

When YRKDaRapper was in high school his mother signed him up for a summer music camp at Blue Lite in Mount Holly, New Jersey. This is where his love for music started, and as time passed he was able to turn the anger he was feeling into joy with the music he was creating. Music showed YRK that there was a different way for him to deal with everyday challenges and obstacles. He’s been able to create lyrics that show the youth that with motivation and drive they can develop their own skills and talents to build upon their dreams. YRK dedicates hours of time to his music but doesn’t consider it working because he truly enjoys what he’s doing. He considers music the best part of his life, and he strives to share that feeling with his fans while creating his music. 

During his musical journey, he gained the inspiration to call himself YRK which is an acronym for Young Rich King. He understands, he was not only fortunate enough to have a loving and supportive family, but he was also able to find a purpose with the music he’s making. With professional guidance from staff at Blue Lite and his family, YRK developed a better understanding on how to promote himself and be more self-sufficient. He’s been blessed to be surrounded by honest and selfless people that are always there to lend a hand and answer any of his questions. 

He draws inspiration for his lyrics from local and world events to support issues at hand and be able to deal with some of the things that are going on. One of his greatest influences from the music industry has been DJ Focus who gave YRK a chance to speak on his radio show and promote his music when he was just starting out. To this day, DJ Focus still shows YRK support and loyalty by checking in on him from time to time. The rising music artist credits DJ Focus’s continuing support for putting him on a path headed towards greatness. But he also considers Meek Mill as one of his greatest musical influences. YRK respects the fact that Meek Mill doesn’t just talk about violence or negativity, but instead focuses on changing the culture for the youth in a positive way. Being able to identify with Meek’s lyrics has helped YRK open his mind and be able to lift others up as well. 

Even though YRK got a late start in the music industry he still finds himself doing the great things he once thought only happened in dreams. For him, creating music isn’t all about the money or the fame. YRK considers music to be a part of him that can’t be replaced with any materialistic things. The rapper is always dabbling around with lyrics and beats to go along with them, but he’s also getting ready to drop his own clothing line. Thanks to his experiences, YRK sees that there is so much that can be done and so much to offer. The rapper plans on being able to live the life his lyrics are talking about within the next 5 years. He strives to be a man of honor and a powerful role model for the youth. YRK also wants to help find funding for the much needed after school programs as a way to give back to the community that helped turn him into the man he is today. 

YRK plans to retire by the time he’s 33 years old and still be living a healthy and comfortable lifestyle. With his free time, he will scout out new talent and help guide them through their musical journey while helping them create their own individual image. Music will always be a huge part of YRK and his life and he’s determined to experience every aspect of the music industry. He’s working towards creating an empire that his family will be proud of. 

When he was first starting out with music, one of YRK’s biggest challenges was finding honest people to work with. He had a hard time finding people with similar character and shared his passion and motivation for changing the world of music and creating positive ideas that everyone can find comfort in. But looking back and seeing how much he’s grown since he first started his musical journey is one of his proudest accomplishments so far. He finds it amazing that he can pour his blood, sweat, and tears into making something so beautiful and then be able to share it with other people. And he hopes that his life’s work will carry on long after he is no longer here. YRK’s end game is to be considered a rap god and put central New Jersey on the map. He wants everyone to feel the greatness that he’s shared with the world through his music as they are chanting his name.
