We had the good fortune of connecting with Yung Marco and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Yung, what is the most important factor behind your success?
Personally, I believe it is my mindset. Being able to have a idea and bring it to life takes a lot of control and discipline. Also the ability to tune others who are against you in order to keep moving forward. You are going to have people not in your corner, but only you can stop yourself from accomplishing your goals.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
Well I am a producer/engineer so my main purpose is to create the best quality of work for a artist. What sets me apart is the the mental investment I have with artists when it comes to the creative process production wise. I am most proud of my ability to sample. I take pride into that skill and it is honestly a lost art so I’m here to make sure that people gets the best samples I can possibly offer. This journey was not easy due to many of the mental challenges such as doubt from others. But like I stated before, control and discipline will take you a long way. I would want the world to know that Yung Marco is here to stay and give the audience/artists the best production I can make everytime you hear a Yung Marco Beat!

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Well I’m from the DMV so definitely somewhere in Alexandria it’s a lot of great things to do there. Also Towson cause I had a lot of great memories down there lmao it’s always something to do out there if you know the right people.
