He is a music producer and a recording artist known as Y2K, who gained recognition in 2019 after his rap song “Lalala” became very popular on the music network Spotify, and on YouTube.

Childhood and education

Y2K was raised as an only child in Scottsdale by his mother who was the owner of a music store even before he was born, and his father who was working with electronics.

As he was growing up, there was always music in Y2K’s house, which motivated him to become a musician one day, and find his own favorite genres and artists. He attended a local elementary school, and during his teenage years mostly listened to Tears for Fears and Gorillaz, but as he was grew older, he started listening to rock bands Say Anything and My Chemical Romance.

Not long after matriculation in 2012, Y2K was introduced to Clams Casino, an Italian-American record producer, by his close friend Lil B who is an American rapper.


After this, Y2K started working on creating his own music, before also starting to produce for other rappers.

Producing songs for other rappers

Y2K launched this part of his career in early 2016, when he produced Pollari’s song “How U Feel”, and then went on to work with Lil Aaron on seven of his songs featured on his extended play (EP) “Gloing Pain$”.

They year 2017 saw Y2K collaborate with various rappers, such as Polyphia on six songs featured on his EP “The Most Hated”, Blackbear on his song “do re mi (Y2K Remix)”, and Aaron Cartier on three songs on his EP “Aaron Cariter Best Rapper Last Album… Maybe HaHa!!”.

Is he gay? What is his gender?

Y2K’s gender is male, but he hasn’t been very clear on whether or not he’s gay.

On 10 September 2017, he (confusingly, jokingly?) asked his fans on Twitter if it is gay to have a girlfriend because kissing a girl would mean kissing all the men she kissed before you, while he has occasionally written other tweets about being gay, but without stating what his sexual orientation is. On another occasion, Y2K stated that he was in a relationship with Janice Griffith who is a pornographic actress, and has uploaded a picture of him carrying a girl in his arms whom he addresses as Janice, but the girl doesn’t appear to be her.


As he hasn’t talked about any girls he might be dating today, Y2K is single, hasn’t married and doesn’t have children – it is widely believed that he is gay, but it hasn’t been confirmed.

Hobbies and other interests

Y2K spends most of his spare time being creative with music, coming up with different beats and combining songs together, but when he is not using his laptop, computer or phone, he enjoys being outdoors, going partying and drinking alcohol.

He is a lover of animals, with dogs being his favorites, but doesn’t have a pet due to a lack of time to take proper care of it.

Y2K likes to travel, and has been all around the US for both work and pleasure, while he’s also been to Europe, Asia and Australia on occasions.

Y2K doesn’t watch movies that often, but when he does he makes sure they star some of his favorite actors and actresses: Jim Carrey, Johnny Depp and Natalie Portman.
