YHB Sleepsalot is a rising rapper best known for his distinct sound and quirky social media presence. He began writing at 13 and has harnessed his own style and sound musically at a mere 18 years of age.
Driven by his passion for music from a young age, YHB Sleepsalot started releasing original songs when he was 16, using beats he found on YouTube and mixing them with skills he picked up through online tutorials. The willingness to hustle hard for his goals paid off when his song “Karabujan” got the attention of big acts across the region, such as Sonaone and ALYPH. Following that initial traction came “Terminal” and “Blow Up”, which gained the then-independent artiste a spot on Spotify’s New Era: Asian Hip Hop playlist. The young rapper has opened for top regional acts including MK K Clique, Kidd Santhe, Tuju K Clique.
Having curated his own unique sound that boasts a versatile discography, YHB Sleepsalot was picked up by Def Jam South East Asia, Universal Music Singapore, in 2020 and has plans for a debut release under the leading label.
