Young Chizz is a rapper from Jamaica, Queens, New York.[1] His stage name was inspired by one of his grandmothers, as she always called him "Child" and "Young Child".[2] Young Chizz was formerly known for the single "Jump On It", which he recorded while part of the duo Fame & Chizz[3] (released in March 2010, according to the iTunes store). Fame & Chizz also recorded a song called "Moving", which was picked up by Michael Cherry of NASCAR.[4] The success was short lived, however, as they had to put their music career on hold for personal reasons, which Young Chizz mentioned in an on-air interview with DJ Cap Cee from WAEB-FM, better known as "B104".[no citations needed here]

Current career

In addition to founding T.O.N.Y Media Group,[5] Young Chizz introduced himself as a solo artist, releasing "Swagger On a Million" in March 2012, according to iTunes. The video for the song debuted on MTV.com in July; by August 2012, it reached the #7 spot on the Mediabase Rhythmic/Indie chart.[6] The video is also on Vevo. Also in 2012, the video for his single, "Here Comes the Blue", was recorded at East Stroudsburg University of Pennsylvania.[7] His hit single, "#Mobbin", became available for purchase on iTunes on May 6, 2013 (according to the iTunes store). The video for "#Mobbin" was partially filmed in Easton, PA as well as Norfolk, VA, several spots in New York, and Washington, NJ's Merrill Creek Reservoir.[3] It premiered during a private viewing held at Larry Holmes' restaurant, Champ's Corner, located in Easton, Pennsylvania.[8] The video premiered publicly on July 15, 2013,[3] and was voted the Lehigh Valley's top entertainment happening of 2013.[9]

In August 2013, the Lehigh Valley Steelhawks joined Young Chizz in announcing that he would be creating the official theme song and music video for the Professional Indoor Football League team.[10] The following month, September 2013, Young Chizz and the PIFL team joined forces to hold a food drive in Easton, PA, benefitting a local women and children's shelter.[11] In 2014, he performed during a New Year's Eve party at Drinkys Nightclub for the second year in a row in Easton, Pa.[12]
