Young M.A was born in Brooklyn, New York to her Puerto Rican father and her Jamaican mother. Her father got locked up when she was 1 year old and was out of jail when she was 11 years old and still remains a distant figure in her life. Her mother had to bring her up and her 3 siblings alone.

Speaking o the Fader, M.A said, “My mom never played no games. She always had a job, she worked her ass off to make sure we was good. She was a single parent, she had three kids, and she made it happen. I learned a lot from that.”

M.A has 3 siblings; Kenneth , Quin, and Davon.

Young Ma Brother

Kenneth was M.A’s brother who was killed in Brooklyn.

When she was 17, she and her family returned to Brooklyn from Virginia where they had been living. Months later after returning, her brother Kenneth, who was just 20 years old then, was killed in a gang-related incident in Pennsylvania.

This incident, M.A says, made her transform into a “life is just fucked up.” Kenneth was her mentor and a father figure to her even though he was just a few years older. He is the one who encouraged her to keep at her music and develop her talent and told her “get that money, sis,” as she recounts on “OOOUUU.”

Speaking to the Fader, M.A revealed that losing her brother put her in a really lonely position since ” this is somebody I always knew, who was right there with me, walking me to school.” She said. “He raised me. I didn’t know how to handle things without my brother, but music just kept coming back to me. I used to write about it a lot, just so I could cope with it. I think that’s why I love music so much; I think if I didn’t have music, I would be in a bad position.”

The loss of her brother, made her fall into deep depression and she even began seeing a counselor but it after a few weeks.
