The Births & Goals of Yo! That Slaps!Thinking about music 24/7.
Hi! I’m Mo
Founder and Curator of Yo! That Slaps
My name is Mo, a 23-year-old Southern California native with Filipino-Nigerian roots. This past summer, I recently graduated college with a double background in Advertising and African American Studies from Cal State Fullerton. Besides curating this music discovery website, I spend most of my time powerlifting in the gym, experimenting in the kitchen, traveling and learning about interior design. Some of my life aspirations include pursuing law or personal training/nutrition and participating in philanthropy.
Yo! That Slaps: An Assignment Turned Passion Project
During Fall 2014, I was assigned to curate a blog of interest in a Communications class. I decided to make it about independent music and concerts. However, I also felt artists deserved detailed reviews of their work because pre-existing coverage was lackluster or a lazy copy+paste of a coincidental press release.
On September 5th, 2014, Yo! That Slaps was founded with the purpose of acquainting readers with new artists while recounting my concert and festival experiences through an insightful lens.
Since then, Yo! That Slaps has attracted readers from around the world.
