Rapper Marvin Young grew up middle-class and earned a degree in economics from USC, where he met Michael Roos and Matt Dike, co-founders of the fledgling Delicious Vinyl rap label. He made his debut as YOUNG MC on the single "I Let 'Em Know." In 1989, Young MC collaborated with Tone Loc on "Wild Thing," the first Top Ten pop hit for a black rapper, and the follow-up smash "Funky Cold Medina." Young MC stepped out on his own later in the year with the Top Ten smash "Bust a Move," a good-natured examination of romantic successes and failures spiced by his sense of humor and quick-tongued rapping. The song won a Grammy for Best Rap Performance, and its strong pop appeal helped the attendant album, Stone Cold Rhymin’ , went platinum. The follow-up, "Principal's Office," was a humorous, everyday high-school tale resembling a Chuck Berry plot, and also climbed into the Top 40. Following Young’s success, he split acrimoniously from Delicious Vinyl, citing restrictions on his work and unwanted tinkering with his album; Young MC signed with Capitol and released Brainstorn in 1991, expanding into message tracks promoting personal responsibility. In late 2000, he returned with “Ain’t Going Out Like That” and continued to release independent albums, including Engage The Enzyme (2002), Adrenaline Flow (2007), and Relentless (2009), throughout the decade. In 2009, he made an appearance in
the Oscar-nominated film Up in the Air.
