Young M.A Names Her Fave Artist Right Now (& He's Not From NY) [Video]
Rap newcomer Young M.A might feel herself but there's a hip-hop superstar she's digging even more. The New York native has put some respect on OVO Sound boss Drake's name.
In a new interview, M.A. called the 6 God her current fave musician.
"My favorite artist right now, I would say, uh, Drake. I would say Drake. I like Drake a lot. The reason why he's like one of my favorites is because he's, um, he's definitely versatile and he always has dope music and he seems like he works hard. He has a good team around him. So I respect Drake." (REVOLT TV)

Last December, Young M.A shouted out rap icon Jay Z and gave him a strong co-sign.
In a recent ELLE feature, Young talked about avoiding stereotypical female appearances during her youth.
The real Young M.A doesn't do makeup, even on camera. In the throwback childhood photo she chose to be her first-ever Instagram post, she wears a full football uniform and a giant smile. "Sometimes I question why I was born this way. I never wanted to wear skirts or shoes, makeup, nails, dresses, or even wear my hair a certain way," the caption reads. "I always wanted to wear sneakers, stud earrings, hair in a ponytail, and play with the boys. I never wanted to be a cheerleader, I wanted to play football. I always wanted to be the boy doll. I never understood it until I got older and realized this is just who I was meant to be and I am proud of who I am." (ELLE)
Recently, Young hooked up with hip-hop superstar Nicki Minaj.
