A force to be reckoned with, a master of sync, all out of a self-made operation in Minneapolis, Minnesota -- artist/producer/songwriter Cortland "YMMI" Davis is poised to continue making waves in the industry. Mentored by Prince and the NPG's musical director, Morris Hayes, YMMI quickly found himself co-writing songs for hit-makers like the platinum R&B group NEXT. Touring with Tech 9 and opening for prominent names in hip hop like T.I., Yo Gotti, Plies, T-Pain, and Nelly. YMMI, which means "Your Music Must Inspire" has a sonic approach to music that spans several different musical genres and never boxes him into one category. YMMI has independently raked in over 1900+ music and song placements across various film, video game, commercial, and T.V. platforms. Music supervisors love his quick turnaround times and his approach to knowing what trends are hot at any given season of the year. One of his most significant Milestones was when he composed music for the global brand Budweiser for their Super Bowl 49 commercial featuring T-Pain. YMMI has also served as lead music contributor and consultant for Activision's "Fast N Furious: Showdown" for Xbox and PlayStation, and most recently secured two major Modelo commercial placements, which are currently airing, YMMI has also teamed up with music icon Timberland as an audio content creator for the new Beat Club platform and will be releasing several loop and sample packs.
