He always knew he had a talent for music, and liked the notion of making music, so as he got older, he bought a beat machine and started making beats. Y.O.L.O's fondest musical memories are those of himself as a kid, listening to old seventies records that his parents played at home. He believes he is unique, as he cannot think of anybody that he sounds like. Because of his production experience, Kelvin has a clear understanding of how his music should be handled from a production perspective, and he believes that gives him an “edge” over many other artists. His favorite aspect of the musical experience is the recording process. He enjoys creating a beat, and then rapping to it. He believes his best overall qualities are his great interpersonal skills, and his ability to get along with almost every person he encounters.
Y.O.L.O thinks his biggest weakness lies in the fact that he is very easygoing. This causes others to assume they can take advantage of his laid back personality.
