Young Mc

Marvin Young (born , 1967) better known by his stage name Young MC is a British born American rapper. He is best known for his 1989 hit "Bust a Move".


In addition to producing the hit "Bust a Move", Young MC was also an accomplished songwriter, having co-written the hits "Wild Thing" and "Funky Cold Medina" for Tone Loc. Even though his follow-up to "Bust a Move", "Principal's Office", did not become a huge hit, it was still nominated for Best Rap Video at the 1990 MTV Video Music Awards. In the UK, the single 'Know How' (not released in the US) became a huge club hit on the rave scene, despite not charting.


Due to creative differences, Young left Delicious Vinyl and signed with Capitol Records, which released Young's follow-up album, Brainstorm. The first single from the album, "That???s the Way Love Goes", received some play on MTV, but very little radio airplay.
