‘YCSMP’ (‘You Can’t Stop My Press’) by Elles-Moca Will Give You The Confidence To Follow Your Dreams
Bold, creative and diplomatic, a young female by the alias of Elles-Moca has emerged to leave her mark. At the age of 13, Elles-Moca was already interested in creating music and started to develop her skills independently. As Elles-Moca’s interest continued to grow, there would be obstacles that would stand in the way and circumstances that would mould her character, make her stronger, and resourceful. Never the one to be playing with barbies she would get her hands dirty instead, with the boys sculpting her aggressive go-getter attitude, resulting in her playing by her own rules.
While patiently waiting for her turn to shine, Elles-Moca had faced various trials and tribulations that plague a lot of artists, particularly females. Always about a strong work ethic, her male counterparts were too caught up on the rap image and stereotypes. As small groups and crews were formed amongst surrounding parties, resulting in them never being close-knit units, it forced Elles-Moca to take initiative again to travel from one end of the city to the other to record music, and pursue her dream. This proved to be an enlightening experience. She learned of the constant struggle she had to face due to her gender but more importantly, the type of people she needed to surround herself with to attain great results and accolades.
Heavy on lyrics, thought-provoking bars and beats only emcees can spit on, Elles-Moca recruits her generals and executives to send the message that she won’t be stopped. A natural-born leader, visionary and dime piece wrapped in one, Elles-Moca is ready to leave a lasting impression on the game as she is cut from a different cloth lyrically.
‘YCSMP’ is the lead song on the artist’s first mixtape album which is called YCSMP. This song is about facing adversity, rising above and never stopping being unstoppable. The fans can connect to the artist’s energy in the song, as well as the creative style and the concept.
Elles-Moca’s musical influences include Tupac, Jay-Z, Gucci Mane and Yo Gotti. She is currently listening to Young Dolph and would love to collaborate with the artist.
When asked about her songwriting process, the artist said: ‘I would listen to a beat for a period of time until I catch a vibe and concept. Then, I would begin to freestyle to it, creating ideas, until I come up with one that I feel is good. Then I’d write it down and begin to record.’ Elles-Moca writes all of her songs and records in her home studio.
The artist believes that social media is important for her platform because it’s a good way to connect and interact with her fans and for them to see her growth and experiences. She appreciates all of her fans for supporting her music.
