The hip-hop artist Cleveland native YFL Kelvin has released the video for his single “Bands On Top Of Bands“. The video plays out the planning and execution of a robbery done by YFL Kelvin on a money van. The video, shot by Keoni Mars was released on March 8th and is part of Def Jam Recordings Undisputed Compilation. YFL Kelvin shot to fame after his 2018 single ‘NASDAQ‘ reached over 300,000 views on YouTube and gave him a status beyond Cleveland.
YFL Kelvin admits that hip-hop has become the soundtrack to his struggles as he was growing up. His father was gunned down when he was just aged five and since then his street life has landed him in jail three times ,“My little brother is in jail. Like, everybody who I used to be with is in jail.” Kelvin began recording out of his home studio, but music was secondary to the lure of the streets, taking his rap name from his biological father and the aspirational acronym “Young, Flashy, Lifestyle.” Since his first major release in 2016, YLF Kelvin has devoted his time to making something more out of his tragedies.
