Artist Interview: Young Tay a.k.a D-Hittah
Tell us about yourself and your music
My music is basically a representation of all aspects of life which people experience. It’s not one sided. I write music about striving for success,Songs with aggression and even songs for the ladies. I feel as if my subject matter is very potent and versatile at the same time.
Talk to us more about your latest release
I’m looking forward to releasing a Ep entitled “Massive Attack’ which is pretty much a 8 song ep of all me expect the one featured song I have under my belt featuring Twisted Insane from Tech N9nes worldwide choppers song. My specialty is rapid fire flow so it’s gonna be something serious but different as well.
What inspired you to write this release?
Life in general. I feel as if it’s a constant Power struggle to overcome due to the positive vs.negative. I’m only human so we all have similar experiences. But I’m here to share my experiences with the world and connect with like-minded people and hopefully make a change on problems that exist in the inner city as well as the outer city.
Any plans to release a video?
Most likely! I have linked up with a new video crew so it’s in the works! It’s gonna be history I tell ya! lol
Any plans to hit the road?
Yes indeed.I Have been an opening act for Kutt Calhoun of Tech N9nes strange music as well as Stevie Stone as well as Twista and the list goes on!

West coast as well as the southern coastline get ready for what Me and my unit has to offer.It will blow your mind! In a good way that is…lol
As an indie artist, how do you brand yourself and your music to stand out from the rest of the artists out there?
We sure do.We stick to the originality aspect of a brand really seriously.Everything from the music and merch is different.We think out of the box as business partners and go for the best vibe we sense.

Tell us about your passions
Other than music its Life. Everyday we are granted with yet another day at a second chance at life with the precious gift of life. It can either make you or break you. I get overwhelmed at times because it’s so much I wanna do this lifetime.Life is like a blur and a decade can come and go.I still remember when I was ten. I just wanna make my mark on the world. And be the master of my destiny.
What else is happening next in your world?
I’m learning how to be a more calm and patient individual as a whole. Some call it being mature…lol,,But on a serious note by the day I become a different person. And sometimes I never cease to amaze my self.Its a learning experience.
