Huey Mack w/ Yonas, Courier & Jax-Zen, Ronald Mac and Russell Scott - The Things Change Tour @ HODI'S HALF NOTE Joseph Dalton Michael (born December 16th, 1991), better known as Huey Mack, is an American hip-hop artist from Morgantown, West Virginia. He started writing music as a joke at the age of 14 to pass the time while he was attending Morgantown High School. He soon stopped writing and took a few years off as he never saw it being a career just something that he did as a "joke". A few years later at the age of 17 he decided to start back up and released his first free mixtape "Wish Me Luck" at the age of 18. This mixtape led to a following some described as "cult-like" which opened the door to the releases of a few more mixtapes including the free mixtape "A Boy Named Hue" which also charted at number "3" in the rap/hip-hop section on Itunes despite being free Hailing from New York City, Yonas is one of hip-hops most-hyped emerging artists. Known for his incredibly unique style, the 25 year old makes it known that he is unlike anyone else in the game. Although Yonas is just breaking out, he has already built-up quite the list of accomplishments. In 2010, Yonas won a Billboard song writing award for his song Banga. Additionally, his hit single Sky Kidz was featured on MTVu as well as Fuse TV with no label or marketing assistance. Yonas had begun to resonate directly with his audience, as he released his debut album The Proven Theory in 2011 setting the foundation for something special. In the summer of 2012, about a year after his debut album, Yonas released The Transition which is now known as his breakout Mixtape. Accumulating over 100,000 downloads in just a short period of time, his independent successes captured the attention of XXL who contacted Yonas to be featured in their Magazines The Break section. Shortly thereafter, Yonas was invited on a 50 city Tour, which took him across the country and back in 60 days, and due to his electric Live Show, his fan base more than doubled in that time period. Since then Yonas has gone on to release 2 additional projects, one of which (The Black Canvas EP) reached Top 5 on the iTunes Hip Hop Charts, and Top 25 on the overall Albums Charts for the first 72 hours of its release. Yonas and his ability to empower and uplift anyone that listens to his music has developed an Artist-to-Fan connection that is undeniable. Currently working on his Sophmore album, Yonas has put himself in a position to make an incredible impact on the music world.
