Born and raised in the Bay Area California. I was born in the city of San Francisco Ca at S.F General Hospital I grew up in the Neighborhood of Bay-view lived with My grand mother at the time moms and 3 sisters and aunties and some other family.
I am 33 years old live in the Bay Area still and love it. I went to a lot different schools thru-out my stay here in Ca and that because we moved around a lot when I was young. I went to elementary school in San Francisco Dr. Charles Drew and from there to Glen Park. For middle school I went to Fernando Rivera in Daly City and then from there I went to school in Pacifica Ca Terra Nova and we lived in Oakland at the time. I finished up my schooling in Oakland Ca at McClymonds High School in West Oakland.
I was prolly about 16 around that time and I was into Music a lot I worked as a drive thru cashier at Kentucky Fried Chicken (lol) and I spent my pay on shoes and CD’s. Rasputin’s was the spot for me in Berkeley Ca. I was so into music my mom wanted me to save my money but it was hard. By then I was getting into freestyle circles and voicing my style of what I thought rap was.
I had a few friends that were into it and it was kind of motivating at the time but I had stopped and did not wanna do it so I moved on but stayed into Music. Not long after that my nephew and his cousin came to me and said they wanted to rap and I kind of laugh and was like ok so to keep them off the street I bought a Mic and some music software and I then started to get into beat making and made beat for us Write to.
So now I was writing beats and learning how to deliver what I wanted to recite over the beats. I picked it up and instantly knew it was for me. Then we came up with a group Name Lyrical Raidas and that basically means what it is lyrically spoken and because we in the town of course its Raidas.
I picked up the Name C.Y. because it’s me my name is Christopher Young C.Y. I want to express my self through music now so I can show people who I am and what I am also through my lyrics and music.
