Rising star, Devouah Juwan Farmer made his entrance into the world on May 26, 1994. He was a bright & energetic child growing up. Playing multiple sports & becoming a stand out athlete kept him busy during his teen years. After graduating in 2012, he decided to tap into his musical genes. Although not nationally known, Farmer's father was a locally successful rapper & producer in his prime. He and a few friends decided to form a group in which they named, A.E. (Alpha & Elite). That is when he started to develop his talent and picked out the moniker, Lil Ya; a childhood name given to him by his cousin. The group created several mixtapes & a few singles but later split up in 2014 due to creative differences. Without his crew to bounce ideas off of, Ya decided to put his music career on pause and went in a different direction. He eventually joined the Military and married his childhood girlfriend. After sometime, he picked up the mic again and started penning new music. With a newfound love for music & life, he dropped his childhood rap name & started going by YayoMagic. Between work & honing his talents, he put together his first solo mixtape, "Cold Summer/Hot Winters, in 2015. Garnering more attention now that his music had matured, he followed with Dark Knights in 2017. In the winter of 2018, he joined forces with his childhood friend, Mhady Jay and released a joint mixtape, "Jordan & Pippen". His most recent project was released in January of this year with the breakout singles, "I Want It All" & "Alone". He is currently the CEO of MMR3000 record label. He is working on new music and developing artists to take his empire & label to the next level.
