ML Underwood Continues to Reign as a “Boss Playa”
GARY, INDIANA - Hip hop artist and producer ML Underwood is back on the scene and dropping beats like never before with his latest single “Bos$ Playa,” featuring Aya Ito. Racking up more than 3,700 views after just hours of its premiere on YouTube, “Bos$ Playa” is cementing ML Underwood as the boss.
“Millionaires, they make a lot of money, work hard, like to smoke and have a nice drink, and just celebrate success – that is a boss playa. And I’m a boss, I’ve always been a boss playa,” said ML Underwood.
When asked further about his latest single, Underwood explains, “It just lays the groundwork for how a real man proves himself in this world we live in right now. Instead of snitching on people and bringing us down to save themselves or hating on another person, I try to tell people to stay away from things of that nature. It is about being positive really and at the same time being a gangsta.”
While the “Bos$ Playa” video is filled with living the high life as a player, Underwood’s latest single is more than just glitz and glamour. Using LeBron James and the late Kobe Bryant as examples, Underwood said, “They are on the team, and how they lead the team (is) they work together with a team to win, and that’s how I live my life. I’m a boss playa out here in the field of life, and it’s the way you move through it so you can win.”
That mentality of playing to win and win as a team makes Underwood stand out in the industry. However, Underwood is not a newcomer to the music industry. As CEO of the entertainment group MyLife Entertainment, he is a well-known and respected talent manager. From offering motivational speaking, life coaching, and philanthropy, Underwood brings out the best in artists and himself while taking the hip-hop industry to the next highest level.
Looking at Underwood’s lengthy list of accomplishments, one may think he’s always had an easy life - that could not be farther from the truth.
While in prison for five years, Underwood had plenty of time to focus and get his head and mind straight. “I realized I always had the talent and that I was living through other people,” he said. “So I just said, ‘stop living through others and live on my own. I am the artist, and I’ve always had the talent.’”
That revelation set the groundwork for his future success in the studio and community, with The United Prisoner Association, which aims to help inmates turn their lives around and focus on fulfilling their dreams away from crime. Never straying far from his Gary, Indiana roots, Underwood gives back to his community. Now living in the suburbs of Crown Point, Indiana in the famous Doubletree Estates, he’s proving that he is deeply embedded in promoting and uplifting the next generation.
“I use my music to empower the African American community to follow the light and find success in their lives,” he said. “My music is a force that is acquiring worldwide recognition in African American music. My life is serving as a source of inspiration for those who are failing to turn their dreams into reality, and my music is encouraging people to take a stand and fight to live lives exactly the way they want to.”
