“CARTOONS”, M.Y.L.O.’s Musical Tribute to His Mother | RVAMAG PREMIERE

by | May 15, 2023 | FILM & TV, MUSIC

M.Y.L.O.’s latest project isn’t just another notch on the entertainment belt — it’s a soul-stirring tribute to his late mother, a narrative sewn together with threads of loss, remembrance, and creative metamorphosis. “CARTOONS” is a testament to his journey through the chasms of grief and introspection.

Born from the crucible of sorrow, “CARTOONS” is the brainchild of M.Y.L.O.’s transformative journey. Fueled by his mother’s unflagging faith in his creative potential, he morphed from an observer to a vibrant life participant. The song stands as a poignant metaphor for this metamorphosis, a tribute to his mother’s gentle spirit, and a call to the mystical ‘4th dimension’ for strength – a reaffirmation of his commitment to continue down the path of self-expression, just as his mother envisioned.

While steeped in personal loss, this project heralds the dawn of an electrifying new chapter in M.Y.L.O.’s artistic odyssey. As he gears up for a nomadic existence, he has a smorgasbord of creative enterprises lined up across the US and Europe. He’s hoping these fresh experiences will deepen his affection for the city that nurtured his talent – his beloved hometown, Richmond.
