Live YR is an underground hip hop Producer/Rhyme Author who developed a love for music at a young age and was influenced by reggae, soul music and hip hop. As a child he would play vynils & CDs on the home stereo system, listen for hours & be fixated on music. As he grew into teenage years, he took an interest in being a Jungle/Drum & Bass DJ. The DJ'ing part never materialized, however Live YR being the kind of person that is captivated by sounds & samples, became drawn into producing. It was around this time that started to take an ever-more profound liking to Hip-Hop.
Live YR wrote his first few rap lines way back in 1992 at just 10 yrs old, but he didn't pursue writing rhymes on a serious level until around age 16, when challenged by a school friend one day in 'who could write the best rhyme'. Around a year or so after he began writing, Live YR began making beats & learning about various equipment that was not affordable at the time, while using a ps1 disc for beat makers. From this point, Live YR gained experience over time learning how to use various music making technology & software, while simultaneously becoming a beast with the pen.
Over the years Live YR became a writer/producer through a mixture of persistence, trial and error, the desire to project 'soul' through his music & being able to release it.
