Aloha OTDHipHop, it's April 2018 already?! Lol. Let's get back to this music then...
As per usual, thank you to all of the artists and supporters out there. This week, we got a special feature all the way from the Bay Area - my homie Young, Dedicated, & Proper (YDP)!
Her brand new EP "I Am Human" is out now, but this project isn't just another mixtape..
Erika Porter, aka as Young, Dedicated, & Proper (YDP) is an artist, rapper, and storyteller who suffered a horrific loss last year. The “I Am Human” EP releases today, on the one-year anniversary of the murder of YDP’s sister, Rashanda Porter, who was fatally shot by her ex-boyfriend while driving her sons to school.
The “I AM Human” EP released 2 days ago on the one year anniversary of
Rashanda Porter’s passing. In light of the tragic memory, YDP showcases a family affair throughout her album. “This project was important because I used beats created by me and our cousins, and also incorporated my son and my sister’s sons on the tracks, which gives the project a real piece of her,” said YDP.
YDP seeks to make a positive outcome from her own grieving process, which is expressed on “I Am Human.” She also seeks to raise awareness about the tragic realities of domestic violence, for the victims and their families.
