Young MA

Loyal reader Django sent in this video of rapper Young M.A. who is best known for her one hit, titled "Ooouuu". While on tour last year, Young M.A., 25, subsisted on fast food and eventually tipped the scales at 171 pounds. For this segment of Fuse TV's "Made from Scratch," M.A. invited her beloved grandmother, G-MAC, to teach her how to make healthy home cooking that will keep the weight off.

Born Katorah Marrero in the Brooklyn borough of New York City, Young M.A. grew up with Hyperandrogenism, a condition marked by excess male androgens such as testosterone in the body. As a result, she developed male characteristics as a child and she even played on the boy's football team.

M.A. says her grandmother was very accepting of her when she predictably came out as a lesbian.

This video is for those of you who wondered what happened to Young M.A.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    That' was what I was screaming.
    I bet she hasn't had 'meat' in her life.

  • You Could Never

    I aint never wonder where she went bc I look at her Twitter at least 3-4 times a week.

    Last I heard she is not signed right now on her own volition. Said she is not ready.

  • i troll it like i see it

    I was successful for two weeks then sampled some chicken piccata at the grocery store and it was a wrap. I was proud of my two weeks vegan!

  • Rayne

    Hell me too. I got yo scrolling looking ? for it ?????

  • You Could Never

    And this is a great time to remind anyone who is changing their diet please be sure to consult with a doctor first. My cousin (really like my sister) has been in the hospital for the past FIVE days. Her New Years Resolution to cut the rest of the meat out of her diet totally (hasnt eaten red meat in 4 years) and add more fiber to her diet has really messed her up. Has a blockage they thought was gonna need surg. Bloodwork is all messed up. Everything is not for everybody. Be sure to check first to see if its for YOU.

  • xenaD

    All I know is that I love cabbage... soft, crunchy, sweet, spicy... lol
    Young MA had fish on her plate so did she eat it or not??
    I’m still not eating pork or red meat tho so ?????

  • xenaD

    That happened to me in 2004 when I first stopped eating beef and pork(stopped cold turkey)... u definitely need to substitute. I didn’t need surgery or anything and sorry to hear that, hope she feels better

    As of the past 3 or 4 years I’ll eat red meat once (or twice ?) a year lol

  • MsVAllDay

    not one day poor thang!

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    We all knew she didnt like meat.

    Oh, you mean that kind of meat. Never mind.

  • Renee26

    What male characteristics??? Her voice???

  • iWasteTime

    I love MA
    She has more than one hit.
    She slimmed down, leaving the meat and Henny alone.

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

  • shay2shaymd

    LMAO

  • SpiceGirl

    lol...wearing a dress.....plenty of room in it... ; }

  • SpiceGirl

    iktr.....I just love food....and if im going to die by its, mine as well go happy....

  • TMW

    So I have a question? If a female like Young MA who gender identifies as male likes girls, is she a lesbian? I mean technically she sees herself as a male, so isn’t it “natural” for her to like girls? Or is she simply labeled a lesbian because she has a va jay jay and likes women? If gender and sexuality are different things then her gender identity would dictate that she’s not really a lesbian in the truest sense of being a woman who is sexually attracted to other women?

    BTW, stopped eating beef and pork and dropped 7 pounds without even really trying in 6 weeks. I’m convinced the chemicals they use to preserve that meat is what is causing the weight gain.

  • SpiceGirl

    I like MA as well.....

  • SpiceGirl

    I will throw one in for ya....."QUITE STORM" (she went in on that song)

  • hottlanta

    Stop with the madness. I ain't gonna never stop my weekly Church's chicken 2 wings and a biscuit run each week. Gotta have some luxuries.

  • SpiceGirl

    or my steak off the grill and ribs too.....

  • SpiceGirl

    cabbage on the grill....YUMMMMMMM

  • TMW

    I eat chicken and fish, and yes, still fried chicken LOL! I didn’t really change anything else about my diet.

    And I’m seriously confused about this issue...looking for wise counsel.

  • Kim’s Original Face

    loved this video. kudos to her for wanting to be more healthy. I just cut red meat out of my diet we"ll see how this goes!

  • TMW

    Making my daughter ribs in the Instant Pot this weekend, but I won’t eat any. Seriously don’t have the taste for it.

  • SpiceGirl

    wow.....more for me. lol

  • hottlanta

    Going running tonight 5 miles but you betta believe when I get back home it's gonna be 2 hot dogs slaughtered with Hormel chili and Ore Ida fries for dinner. I exercise like a dog so I can eat like a dog.

  • hottlanta

    Your home address is ______________________.

  • gro$$

    ewww you maybe on to something they do pump both animals w hormones etc before slaughter and who knows what to preserve it too.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    I’ve been a vegetarian for 6 months and I have started transitioning to being a vegan. I’m been fine. I guess it just depends on your body

  • TMW

    Thst’s what she said!

  • TMW

    I gotchu ?

  • hottlanta

    As long as you do it in moderation. Lil Hots introduced me to the show about One Ton Family and they have potluck every week and they are a hot mess. Going to get 10 boxes of pizzas and bringing back 5. The whole family has food overload on a serious level. How in the hell do you have a hotplate in the middle of your bed and a grabber to grab spices. You know what I would use a grabber to have.

  • TMW

    That’s why if I do get a taste for it again, I will not buy it pre packaged in a chain grocery store ever again. I’ll go to a butcher...or Costco which doesn’t add all the preservatives to its meats.

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    Giving up meat completely is truly a struggle

  • Sircaput

    Is instant pot the same as a pressure cooker?

  • You Could Never

    I think that whole entire consult with your doc notice goes largely ignored. I know I do. How many times have we gone on diets and not consulted anyone. Nobody I personally knows goes and is like Im about to try XXXX diet doc...what do you think about that? I was shocked when doc said that her situation was pretty much man-made. She did it to herself.

  • SpiceGirl

    that is a whole mess! lol....im only 130 at 47 yr old....don't think(I hope) I will be packing that much on....it's just this one time im going to binge on... : }

  • TMW

    Yes. You cook the rib for 20 mins in the Instant Pot, and then you add your sauce and char it for about 5 min under the oven broiler. It was really good and tender and tasted really good. Cooked them for New Year’s...and then stopped eating pork.

  • SpiceGirl

    my girl!!! : }

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    Yes, it really is in the beginning. I did that for the whole year of 2016. I lost a bunch of weight to the point people thought I was sick. After the first couple of months, it got easier. I started eating meat again after new years 2017 and gained most (not all) of my weight back. This year, I gave up beef and pork. When I do eat meat, it's only seafood & poultry. That's only 2-3 times a week, if that.

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    Yup, I quit eating beef & pork after new years as well. I dropped 10 lbs, still losing weight but it's gradual.

  • SweetTEE

    The title? I wasn't thinking about food at all..waab.

  • Sircaput

    oh ok, I have a pressure cooker but I have been using it as a slow cooker, might have to try the ribs before March, trying to do a Plant diet.

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    No, she's a lesbian.

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    I can't listen to her or most of these new age "rappers" either. I don't understand what they're saying, they sound ridiculous, or their voices annoy the heck outta me. Or all of the above!

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    Yea at the moment, I eat seafood most of the times. But there are time that I will have beef and pork.

  • Vegas1989

    I gave up pork 3 years ago and Beef 3 months ago. I'm getting back into my size 6. I don't eat bad at all but my husband is from Louisiana and he is a great cook. I cut out pork and beef because he has high BP. And so I'm showing support. Not easy because I wanted a In an Out burger....SMH.....And then found a beef bacon that was good too.....MAN...But we are doing good

  • Vegas1989

    Just don't eat to much fried chicken and catfish. My husband love doing a fish fry and frying chicken....Just watch the your intake. Fry in peanut or canola oil

  • Vegas1989

    For the longest I thought she was a dude. Because I was like," Why is homeboy calling himself young ma instead of young man....LOL...I can't deal with this new generation of rappers...Lil Itchy is that his name? Damn my bad that itchy and scratchy from the Simpsons....LOL

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    Lol ???

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    ?????

  • Anji

    Blessings to your cousin. I love but can't eat cabbage, broccoli or resistant starch. I miss it. Every body and intestinal system is unique.

  • Crazy tee

    As long as I can have seafood I just might be able to do it...and that’s a maybe??

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    Didn't she give up meat a long time ago?

  • You Could Never

    Awe thanks. I was trying to reply Happy Valentine's Day yesterday but phone was acting up.

  • You Could Never

    Sure is. I had no idea how unique until early Sunday morning when she was rushed to the hospital. Crazy!

  • You Could Never

    I dont think she ever had any kind of (man) meat in her whole ass life.

  • Yetunde

    I liked that video.

  • Kimberly King

    I've given up all meat except for shrimp. It's a struggle. Young M.A. is cute. But if I'm gonna go to Trib City, the chick has to be super girly and pretty like me.

  • Shawty

    Good for her. When you know better, you do better!

  • Shawty

    now.....that's too funny!

  • Shawty

    And of course when you make that choice, you see and smell it all day. Testing that willpower. Great benefits for the body though.

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    Exactly!

  • MsPam

    I thought she was talking about the other kind of meat! Going to grab my bible!????

  • MsPam

    She looks like Kevin Gates twin?

  • Liah

    I get it!...I gave up the beef and the pork...Vegan...Nah...Thats a whole other life...Not with it...I gotta have some meat in my life...I must honestly say i feel a whole lot better

  • MistaO

    No pun intended...?

  • Marc Jacobe

    Interesting, interesting yet not so..... I guess that's healthier than McDonald's

  • Marc Jacobe

    Interesting, interesting yet not so..... I guess that's healthier than McDonald's

  • Dahl

    Me and my pervy mind went a different direction when I read the title...?

  • gro$$

  • gro$$

    good tip TY!

  • Queen B

    Lol yep

  • ?Royalty?

    I dont know who in the hail Young Ma is but.....?

    I gave up meat 3 weeks ago. I lost 10 lbs and I'm still counting. I go the gym faithfully because my energy level is on ADHD. ? One hour and a half per day at the gym 5 or 6 times per week and when I get home, I'm not even hungry. ? I stopped desiring meat after about 3 days. It's been a very easy journey.?
    I dont know if I'll ever go back because right now, the smell of meat makes me nauseous. ?

  • Sinny

    When has she identified herself as a man? She’s a lesbian; more specifically - an aggressive woman who likes feminine women. You people kill me with the BS.

  • Jussjess25

    Auntie, we were not wondering what happend to this chick, like at all! #nextcase

  • TMW

    First of all, I asked a question. Second of all, did you read Sandra’s write up?

  • Candance

    That was cute!

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I never said she identified as a male. I said she grew up with a hormonal disorder that caused male characteristics.

  • TMW

    Didnt say you said it, but it can be inferred based on the write up and from her general appearance. I have a relative just like her, and this has always been a question. I asked her, and she said she doesn’t think of herself as female at all, so she doesn’t see liking girls as being lesbian.

  • YaYa

    HOLLERING!!!!

  • Sinny

    I did. No where in the post did she say she self-identified as a man. DId you read it?

  • Mister Fantastic

    Literally giving up THE MEAT!

  • MRiGOThim

    she gave up meat a long time ago...

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    Love you Sis ?

  • Trace da Ace

    oh so that is where she is....ok....well I hated that song OOOUUUU or whatever it was....it was very annoying to me....

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    G-Mac need to encourage her to 'get some' in her diet... at least once... Lol!
