Ben Hatfield (Born July 18, 1995) better known by his stage name Young Lyrix is a rapper from Canada. His lyrics are not for the faint hearted, sexual and misogynistic, and unapologetically so, his style is undeniably hard hitting and not for the easily offended. His influences are basically the greats from the modern rap era, Eminem, 50 Cent, Notorious B.I.G and Tupac and his rapping style is essentially a combination of all those. He mixes the often violent and dark lyrical content of Eminem (as well as elements of his humour) with the slightly more laid back rapping of 50 Cent, though he can spit out a rapid fire rap when he wants. Young Lyrix’s finds his own personal style in his ability to create so much dread and moodiness with so little elements – a synth here, a sample there, his style is one that understands the concept that less is more. Young Lyrix is also the Founder/CEO of Ktown Entertainment.
Hatfield was born and raised in a Kenora, Ontario, Canada on a street named Minto, one of the worst streets in the area.
