Bandwidth: Hip hop artist YSD makes waves in Richmond

on November 29, 2012

Meet Young Shorty Doowop, or Y.S.D., one of Richmond’s rising stars — a female rapper and R&B artist who’s been writing her own songs since childhood. She performs around the Bay Area, dishing up beats from her first album, “I Love All My Fans: The Mixtape” and a new single, “Flexin’ on Em” (which comes with its own dance). She’s been featured on KMEL 106.1 FM, danced in music videos with Snoop Dogg and 50 Cent, and sells her “I Love All My Fans” clothing line at Filthy Dripped in Richmond.

Shorty’s been through a lot, but music is an inspiration — both in her own life, and, she hopes, for everyone who tunes in. Follow her on Twitter at @ILoveAllMyFans.
