Every dream of a young artist is to become successful. The ultimate end goal is for the music to inspire and tell a story that your audience can relate to. The hardest part of the music industry is gaining a following and maintaining a consistent audience. This is definitely not an issue for the aspiring songwriter and rapper, Isaiah Haye- known by his stage name “Yungcudii.”
Isaiah Haye was born on February 4th, 2001 in Ottawa, Ontario. He was raised in Russell Heights with his migrant Jamaican parents and eventually they decided to relocate to ForestGlade. From a young age, Isaiah had aspirations of playing professional basketball.
At thirteen years old, he realized that he wanted to switch his focus and attention to music. If you wanted to know what Cudii was like as a child, he was an inspired fourth-grader who would freestyle at lunch and write music when he should have been listening in class.
Isaiah is an inspiration for any adolescent who wants to follow their dreams. With help from his brother-in-law and manager, Joshua Bailey, at 15 years old Isaiah released his very first single on Soundcloud “Purple” in May 2016. This single quickly gained attention which motivated him to release more music. He then released “Fitted”, “Dirty Spirt”, and “Finesse”. After those singles released, he was exposed to shows and show opener opportunities.
“I remember watching the MTV awards with my brother as a kid and seeing Soulja Boy and Chris Brown accomplish their dreams at a young age. After that I felt inspired. I remember saying to myself that if they can do it, I can too. Shortly after that I began free-styling and writing music.” — YungCudii
His hard work and dedication paid off when his songs got exposed to apple music and Spotify. His single “Think Too Much” that was released in 2019 through United Masters, gained over 400,000 streams on Spotify and was #55 on the charts. This was great exposure for his next upcoming albums. YungCudii’s other popular singles such as “Energy”, “Love Hurts”, and “Conclusions,” have racked up over 100,000 streams. Cudii later released his debut album “Purge Season” which placed #80 on the charts. Not only does YungCudii have an impressive amount of streams, but he also has 40k active monthly listeners. These amazing statistics prove that with diligence, commitment, and devotion, your dreams can become a reality.
Each of Yungcudii’s songs has a message. He is always trying to deliver positivity in all of his music. If you are wondering who Yungcudii wants to be compared to, it is Juice Wrld because they both make similar and timeless music. Each artist has a person who they would eventually want to collaborate with. For Yungcudii, he aspires to work with Lil Tecca because he believes that both their music styles would make an amazing hit.
With aspiring Artists like Yungcudii himself, the dreaming never stops. In the future, Cudii hopes to make a living from his music and to be known from all over the world, selling out stadiums. This is not an unrealistic goal for Yung-cudii due to all the attention he has been gaining on his albums. To keep his audience consistent and engaged, Cudii will be releasing new music and always staying active on social media so his fans can stay updated.
This comes to show that there is no specific age when it comes to starting your career. Isaiah was inspired at a young age and it is not just a hobby for him, it’s a lifestyle. You can find Isaiah on Instagram @yungcudii, which has over 7000 followers. On there you can find his contact for bookings and features.
“Keep following your dreams and never give up.” — YungCudii
