Marvin Young werd op 10 mei 1967 in het Verenigd Koninkrijk geboren. Deze rapper, zanger, acteur en componist verhuisde op driejarige leeftijd naar de Verenigde Staten en staat in de muziekwereld beter bekend onder de naam Young MC.

Eind jaren 80 breekt hij in de muziekwereld door met de hitsingle Bust A Move wat afkomstig is van zijn debuutalbum Stone Cold Rhymin’. Na een aantal albums bij verschillende platenmaatschappijen met wisselende successen te hebben uitgebracht, brengt hij in 2000 zijn vijfde album uit op zijn eigen platenlabel Young Man Moving Records.

In 2008 verscheen het album Relentless.

Als acteur heeft hij onder andere een rol gespeeld in de film Up In The Air en de tv serie Parker Lewis Can’t Lose.


This here's a jam for all the fellas
Tryin' to do what those ladies tell us
Get shot down 'cause ya over-zealous
Play hard to get females get jealous
Okay smarty go to a party
Girls are scantily clad and showin' body
A chick walks by you wish you could sex her
But you're standing on the wall like you was Poindexter

Next days function high class luncheon
Food they're serving, you're stone-cold munchin'
Music comes on people start to dance
But then you ate so much you nearly split your pants
A girl starts walking guys start gawking
Sits down next to you and starts talking
Says she wants to dance 'cause she likes to groove
So come on fatso and just bust a move

You're on a mission and your wishin'
Someone could cure your lonely condition
Lookin' for love in all the wrong places
No fine girls just ugly faces
Some frustration first inclination
Is to become a monk and leave the situation
But every dark tunnel has a light of hope
So don't hang yourself, with a celibate rope

Your movie's showin', so you're goin'
Could care less about the five you're blowin'
Theater gets dark just to start the show
Then ya spot a fine woman sittin' in your row
She's dressed in yellow, she says
Hello, come sit next to me you fine fellow
You run over there without a second to lose
And what comes next hey bust a move

In this city ladies look pretty
Guys tell jokes so they can seem witty
Tell a funny joke just to get some play
Then you try to make a move and she says, No way
Girls are fakin' goodness sakin'
They want the man who brings home the bacon
Got no money and you got no car
Then you got no women and there you are

Some girls are sadistic, materialistic
Lookin' for a man makes them opportunistic
They're lyin' on a beach perpetrating a tan
So a brother with the money can be their man
So on the beach you're strollin' real high rollin'
Everything you have is yours and not stolen
A girl runs up with somethin' to prove
So don't just stand there bust a move

Your best friend Harry has a brother Larry
In five days from now he's gonna marry
He's hopin' you can make it there if you can
'Cause in the ceremony you'll be the best man
You say neat-O, check your libido
And roll to the church in your new tuxedo
The bride walks down just to start the wedding
And there's one more girl you won't be getting

So you start thinkin' then you start blinking
The bridesmaid looks and thinks that you're winking
She thinks your kinda cute so she winks back
And now your feelin' really firm 'cause the girl is stacked
Reception's jumpin' faces pumpin'
You look at the girl and your heart starts thumpin'
Says she wants to dance to a different groove
Now you know what to do just bust a move
