We were fortunate enough to interview local Pittsburgh Rapper, Jordan York.
1) When did you realize that you had a passion for music?
I always had a passion for entertaining people and music was always such a big part of my life growing up. When my neighbor, Anton, came back from college he told me I have beats for you, we started making music and from there everything just grew.
Who are your main inspirations as an artist?
The old school artists; Jay Z, Slick Rick, and Michael Jackson.
What would you like to achieve as an artist?
To be honest I never thought I'd would of achieve everything I already have. I am very blessed. I just hope to continue to perform and make music until I no longer can.
What is your most memorable moment while being an artist?
Being able to share the stage with artists who I grew up listening to.
5) Who is the biggest artist you’ve worked with?
Afroman, Trace Cyrus, Waka Flocka Flame, 50 Cent, Bubba Spraxx, Aaron Carter, and O-Town to name few.
Tell us a little more about your recent project?
A lot of my music is gimmicky and fun for all ages. With my next release "Local Legend" I wanted to come with something different, hard hitting and being able to show my true skills. I think this is one of my best songs to date and I can't wait to release it this summer!
What should we be looking forward to from you in the future?
A lot, I’m always working on something. New music, videos, acting gigs, community events and more. I am the co-founder with my friend, Michael Nicastro, of YinzerCrazy.com. It's a podcast and sports website in Pittsburgh that we started a year ago and has been an amazing adventure so far.
