Having set the bar high on his debut mixtape New Jack Yitty, New Yitty has proven that he is well equipped with the tools to be a staple in the Rap World. A product of the East New York section in Brooklyn, Yitty inherited his ear for music from his late father, a locally recognized D.J. Yitty discovered his rap gift while exiting high school and honed in on it more seriously in college by battle rapping and doing shows. Unfortunately also while in college, New Yitty encountered one of the biggest lessons of his life; one that would eventually lead to four years of incarceration. New Yitty was arrested & convicted of "Possession with The Intent to Distribute in association with a Firearm" in West Virginia. He was sentenced to 5 years in Federal Prison where many thought his dreams of making it in the rap game would be brought to a complete halt!
