About Us

Founded in 2015 by Syreeta Gates, Yo Stay Hungry has been a groundbreaking innovation, bridging the worlds of rap and food. It started out as a citywide culinary competition for high school students hosted at August Martin HS in Queens, NY.

It has since grown to be a trusted brand to whet the appetite for rap parties like Jonathan Mannion's Reasonable Doubt 20th Anniversary celebration and to represent for the culture at events like the 2016 Taste Talk Food and Drink Awards. Whoever thought hip-hop would take it this far?
