Bio

From the most isolated city in the world, Perth, Western Australia, hails Yourboymars. Who is on the path to takeover Australia's hiphop music scene that has exponentially grown over the past 2 years.

Yourboymars is an African Australian singer, rapper and songwriter who is on the rise to greatness. He aspires to always better himself through his music and represents his passion for his Habesha culture. He brings a new wave of music to the hip-hop scene with a clean mixture of Afro-beats, trap, soul and R&B. He is on the forefront of the young new-wave Australian music scene alongside names such as The Kid Laroi and Youngn Lips.

At only 19 years of age he has already cemented himself as an artist to look out for in 2021. Described by Dave Ruby Howe/Triple J Unearthed as a ‘Young gun coming through! Mars keeps showing up with the promising tracks, reckon he's only a few away from really blowing’ and sees a bright future for YBM.

His first official single ‘WIFEY’ released on March 5th, 2020 and has gained 60K streams on Spotify alone whilst being added to the Urban Flavour Spotify playlist. YBM released his second single ‘Hmm’ on May 8th gaining 162.4K streams on Spotify whilst being play-listed to the infamous Mellow Styles editorial playlist alongside a music video with 28K views on YouTube. YBM's latest stand-alone single 'Built for This' has released on August 14th and has been added to Spotify's 'Mellow Styles' and 'The Drip' editorial playlists, with 62K Spotify plays and 29K Youtube music video views.

Fire and ice with these two. Mars has the hooky melodic thing on lock and Shadow brings his trademark tough verbals. Flames. Standard.

i'm with tommy that this is an exciting step up. there's not even a hint of trying too hard or anything fake, it feels real and like you were born for this.
