In this day and age though, he has taken on more than music and has made entry into the world of acting. He has embraced the addition of a talent he knew existed and leaned his abilities into the recent film, “Mixed Girl”. The multi-talented star has come into his own and has our attention while doing so.

J Young MDK has had a dream of creating this fabulous life for himself since he was a child. He spent copious hours, days, and weeks catering to his followers and providing them with premium music content. He dropped his albums “Aqua”, “White”, and “Black” all in the same year, making history by releasing two of them the same day.
