Young Tru Millionaires (YTM) consists of four young men, Yung Christyle, Mon Franklins, TrueReligion Kid Nike, and Money Walk Shorty. Formally known as Real Niggas Wit Money (RNWM). All except one were born and raised in Chattanooga, TN, but they all grew up together.
They’re all related to each other as well. Mon and Christyle are brothers, while Nike and Money Walk are cousins to each other and the two brothers. They had friendship before anything. Then later found out that Money Walk Shorty was blood related to the other three, additionally drawing them closer and generating an everlasting bond.
It was in 2007 when they united at Tyner High school, where they came up with their street smashing 1st record titled “Try Me Now”. They individually decided to put their heads together and deliver a new age of music. “Try Me Now” was an electrifying remake of Lil Boosie’s “Wipe Me Down”. That one song gained them street creditability and attention from all the high schools around the city, leading them to doing local shows around their local area.
Later, they linked up with their uncle and Southern Comfort Ent, CEO L. BooBee Torrey, who took them from home recording to commercial recording studios of Southern Comfort. Since Real Niggas Wit Money wasn’t a presentable name, they agreed on changing the name and labeled themselves Young Tru Millionaires, YTM for short.
Their most recent hits “Da Hell of It”, “Bizurk”, “I Swear” and “100” has had the streets buzzing and has also brought collaborations with other artists throughout their region. At the end of July, summer of 2011, they apparently caught YouTube phenomena Soulja Boy jacking their lyrics from their single “Da Hell of It”, naming his song “Hell of It”, which he leaked on twitter. YTM immediately posted statuses, tweets, and videos all over their social networks, quickly getting the word out to the public. They’re currently having Soulja Boy’s song along with theirs, reviewed by the Attorneys for copyright infringement before they take further action.
In the meantime, their Uncle was arrested and taken in to serve time in prison. Unfortunately, their management fell apart so the group took their own money and financed their own studio. Three and a half years later YTM are set to go with their original family. The new “Immaculate Southern Comfort Entertainment”.

On “DA Hell Of It” the YTM “Young Tru Millionaires” are just doing what everyone else wants to do, but can’t. YMT are expressing themselves, without the confines of the record industry restricting them.
So many rappers can’t truly be the artists they want to be, because they are limited to the confines of their contract, inhibiting them to create music in a certain way. This doesn’t happen to YTM. On their Immaculate Southern Comfort Entertainment label, they are allowed to prove the evolution of their skills.
