Coming from the streets of Philadelphia, recording artist/songwriter, YesLord, has paid his dues and is making his mark on the music industry as an up-and-coming rap artist. As a young teen in Philadelphia, YesLord, born Jamal Tillery, spent most of his time getting in and out of trouble. After being sent to various detention centers for violence and drug arrests, he eventually was sent to Glen Mills High School (an alternative school for adjudicated young males), at the age of 16. He eventually graduated and enrolled in college at West Chester University. There, he continued to struggle both academically and morally. This struggle eventually caused him to withdraw from college for a semester. Upon his return to school a few months later, YesLord was able to successfully attain a degree in Criminal Justice. Since then, he has attained an MBA and is currently a few classes away from completing a second Master’s degree in Education. In addition, he has owned and operated several businesses and franchises, the most important and successful of these being his music business. Inspired by his environment and many situations within his life, YesLord considers himself to be one of the most talented writers within the entertainment industry today. After winning several internet artist showcases and performing at various hip hop events, YesLord is set to take his career to the next level. His style is smooth, his sound is full, his beats are hot, his hooks are captivating, and his rhymes are real and original. He is not only incredibly talented. He is also a strong, young businessman who is destined for success in the music industry.
