Aegy Gold and Forty Five are two emcees part of the Y.B.F.L. movement. Y.B.F.L. is an acronym standing for Young.Boss.For.Life. Aegy Gold is a 19 year old artist born in Madison, WI but grew up in Shullsburg, WI, a small town of 1000 people. Initially playing the drums at 12 years old then guitar at 17 years old, Aegy has been performing and writing music since a very young age. Even though Aegy has had an interest in music from the beginning it was his love for Hip Hop that inspired him to pursue a career in music. With influences like Drake, Eminem, Kanye West, Jay Z, Macklemore, and Dizzy Wright; Aegy understands what it takes to succeed in the music industry. When he turned 18 years old Aegy started to really focus on writing, creating his first masterpiece and featured music video for "No Competition" by 45., launching him into the spotlight.
Forty Five, born Colton Howard
in Beloit, WI, was raised near the city of Tampa on the South West side of Florida. Always interested in music, it was Hip Hop that really caught Forty Five's ear and inspired him to pick up the pen and the mic at the age of 19 years old. Studying the lyricism and delivery of Nas, Jay Z, Tupac, Notorious B.I.G, Rakim, Melle Mel, Immortal Technique, Kanye West, Andre 3000, Eminem, Joe Budden, J. Cole, and Mos Def; Forty Five found he too had a talent for wordplay and a passion for performance. Forty Five is a musical threat with his metaphorical verses, mind blowing lyrics, and his aggressive but catchy style. Partnering with Aegy Gold, Forty Five takes his art to a new level with the recent release of the "King's Gold" EP.
