Today, YouTube Music is premiering a new, original mini documentary with chart-topping rapper, singer and songwriter and YouTube Artist on the Rise, 24kGoldn, on 24kGoldn’s official YouTube channel. The five-minute short film follows the San Francisco, genre-bending artist as he talks about the moment that changed his career forever and the impact his sudden rise to fame has had on his life.

Fear is all in your mind. It’s as real as you allow it to be. If you fill your mind with fear, you have no space for the blessings that the world is willing to grant you.”

The colorful documentary -- with video game animation cutaways -- takes viewers back to 24kGoldn’s fateful visit to San Francisco streetwear shop, Dream Team SF, where he first met PAYPA_BOY and knew his dreams of becoming an artist could be a reality. 24kGoldn continues on in the personal documentary to discuss the trials and tribulations of his sudden rise to fame, the internalization of the “evil version of Goldn,” and the important role his family plays in keeping him grounded.
