“Crossover success.” “The soundtrack to social progression.” The first rapper in history to come out of the closet as gay before an album release. Undeniably one of the decade’s most dynamic artists — Y-LOVE. Y-Love (Yitz Jordan) has made a name for himself as a hip-hop artist, multicultural educator, fashionista, technology guru, advertising whiz, activist for social change, and political pundit — all in seven short years.
When Y-Love (Yitz Jordan) released his first mixtape in 2005, the world took note of the first African-American Orthodox hip-hop artist. Now, with his new single “Focus on the Flair”, Y-LOVE is ready to reintroduce himself by proudly proclaiming his sexuality to the world and showing that spirituality and gay identity can coexist. His previous EP See Me debuted as a “New and Noteworthy Release” on the front page of iTunes Hip Hop. Y-Love is leading a new era of “universal hip-hop” — where global social consciousness combines with pounding rhythms and empowering messages for all of humanity.
In a hip-hop world full of negative messages, Y-Love (Yitz Jordan) is leading a new era of “universal hip-hop” –where pounding rhythms combine with social consciousness to “elevate, not tranquilize” the world. His first full length album since his smash debut, This is Babylon, “Focus on the Flair” will feature tracks like the club anthem “Famous”, featuring LA-based singer Brody, world hip hop influenced “Rock Like Me” featuring Doodlebug of Digable Planets and the electro pop “Fashion Show” featuring Yula Beeri of Kiss Slash Crooked Smile.
