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 and I’m a 23-year-old Southern California native with Filipino-Nigerian roots. I’m a recent college graduate who enjoys social justice, food, fitness, and HGTV. Some of my life aspirations include pursuing philanthropy related to music education and higher learning. I’m just a 23 year old with a passion for deep thinking and pop culture.
The Birth and Mission of Yo! That Slaps!
Yo! That Slaps was an assignment turned into a passion project. In September 2014, I was assigned to curate a blog of interest. At that time, I fell in love with concerts and music discovery. After countless visits to various outlets, I felt that artists deserved better coverage for their work. Many posts I saw consisted of two forms of coverage: simply “Hey! listen to this song because..” or a lazy copy+paste of a coincidental press release with no personal insight.
On September 5th, 2014, Yo! That Slaps was founded with the purpose of offering insightful reads on independent artists while highlighting my live music experiences. I want to help independent labels get their names out, shine a light on upcoming industry talent and creatives while simply broadening readers’ horizons.
Since then, I learned my opinion has value and this blog would attract readers from around the world. If you are interested in connecting, check out my advertising portfolio & fill out the contact form below.
