Yung Mil Bio
Since his first show at 14 years old, the 22 year old Portland-born Hip-Hop/Pop Artist, and Producer Yung Mil (an acronym for Music Is Life) broke into the industry with many quality original songs and popular remixes online, infectious opening act performances sharing stages with major artists like Kid Ink, Tyga, YG, French Montana, E-40, T.Mills, Sage The Gemini, Warren G and more.
Along his career, he was hand picked the winner of Russell Simmons & Kevin Liles' National Def Jam Rapstar: Get Schooled contest. A video contest to create a song about the importance of education and goals. With Cool and Dre produced winning song "Leaders Of The New School" and the help of thousands of votes he scored meetings with Hip Hop Pioneers, Def Jam Record Label founders Russell Simmons & Kevin Liles and a televised guest performance on BET's 106 & Park.
With over 13,200 followers rapidly growing on Twitter and widespread social media, over 400k views on his viral international party anthem "Do Your Dance" ft. George Padilla selling in over 40 countries, sold out shows and support from major clothing brands like Under Armour, he proves to have accomplished a lot in his young years.
All to be owed to the support of his loyal following and Internet fanbase the DBA Clique. Young individuals who remain fun, positive, enjoy the only life they've been granted and strive for their goals and dreams no matter how big or small. The DBA Clique name derives from one of Mil's life mottos: "if you Dream, and Believe then you can Achieve." They rep the same.
