about

AMG Artist Young Lit Hippy discusses his latest album “Psychological Warfare”.


Young Lit Hippy is from Portland Oregon & moved to LA 2 years ago.

He dropped 3 projects this year including an EP called pure intentions.

His latest album that he’ll be releasing on December 31st is called Psychological warfare. He described it as a recap “in a weird way” of 2020.

Hippy acknowledged the negativity that has come out of 2020 but from the bad, he feels, will come good.

Just like when a fire burns a forest down, it can be a good fertilizer to what grows next YLH expressed. so will light come from the darkness of 2020.


Psychological warfare addresses the emotional balance in life in general & 2020 specifically. It is a combination of deep thought & an in the moment party vibe.

There’s a lot of self reflection in the music & it was a process of omitting self doubts.


When I asked Hippy how this project is different than previous ones, he said: “I was looking for a bigger sound, a better sound. I outsourced the mixing & mastering. All my other projects have been mixed by myself. This project was mixed by Dee Kei mixes & that is going to be one of the biggest differences in the sound."



“Since quarantine,” He continued “ I’ve just been creating a lot of music, learning what realm I want to be in sonically. Not jumping around too much and finding the spot I can feel like: I’m cool with this, I don’t need to force anything, it just sounds like me. Im young lit hippy & this is my sound.”


Young Lit Hippy explained to me that “Everyone has a point where they’re either going up or down, and you have to make a choice. I feel like I had that point earlier in my career when I first moved to LA. I came to LA more for guidance than to find out what I’m going to do.

I had to push through the self doubt & decide if I’m going up or down. I’ve decided to go all the way up.”


Be sure to keep an ear out from Psychological warfare from Young Lit Hippy dropping just in time for the end of 2020, to carry us over from this year, help us decipher the madness & bring us into 2021 refreshed & in a new light.
