Discussing the project Melly stated, “It’s really based on what [I] grew up on – being locked up for 2 years of [my] life…It means more than just gang banging. We All Shine is to the universe to the whole world. It’s not just Black culture but to White culture, to every culture, we all shine.” He continued, “We all need to come together as one nation and just let everybody shine and stop bringing darkness to each other and stop depression, you know what I’m saying? I just want everybody to find the light deep deep inside of their soul and let them find themselves for themselves and we all gone shine and its not gonna happen unless we all shine together.”

Florida-born vocalist and rapper YNW Melly (b. Jamell Demons) is winning over new listeners daily with his spirited rap storytelling, eccentric personality, and paradoxical approach. The 19-year-old recording artist from Gifford, Florida first discovered a penchant for turning the adversity he faced into compelling songs at the age of 15, drawing from his own experiences to be both a voice for others and build his own empire.
From exploring his talents as a naturally gifted vocalist and promising songwriter in middle school to later being incarcerated for a weapons charge at age 16, YNW Melly has proven he has what it takes to persevere against all odds. In 2018, he continued combating his legal woes by consistently dropping one-off singles, leading up to the release of his debut project, I Am You, in August. Back with his newest EP, WE ALL SHINE and an incredible record with Grammy award-winning icon, Kanye West, Melly is a force to be reckoned with.
