Young M.A Best Quotes
Music is my expression. Music is my release. Music is my therapy.
I’ve been a fan of BET since I was a kid, growing up watching the awards, thinking that one day I would be there.
I think that’s why I love music so much; I think if I didn’t have music, I would be in a bad position.
I still feel normal. Like, I don’t feel like I’m a superstar.
I don’t live in a big house. I’m not real extravagant or anything. I just like to be regular.
I need to just be myself, express myself.
