Yasmin Michelle Beaches (b. 16th January 1978), better known as her stage name, Yahtzee, is a Jetanie rapper and producer. She is best known for being one of the four members of Jetanie hip hop group Young S.Cool.
Yasmin Beaches was born on 16th January 1978 in Apocofeild, Jetania. Beaches never met her father, who died five months before she was born. Due to a lack of motivation and attitude, Beaches barely went to school, often skipping classes. After realising she will not receive any qualifications in school, Beaches started developing an interest in hip-hop music, and with the help of her mother, Beaches managed to approach Jetanie rapper Big Beat in 1991, at the age of 13. Big Beat said Beaches had potential, but thought she would do better in a group, so agreed to create a hip-hop group with people her age.
Beaches coined her stage name, Yahtzee, in early 1992, saying ”I was thinking of a stage name such as Lucky, or Chancer, but thought it would sound stupid, so I went with Yahtzee, because that game requires luck and strategy, something you need in the industry.”
From 1992 to 2001, Yahtzee spent the majority of her time recording music with her new group, Young S.Cool, and fellow members Queen Cyprus, Galleon and Kick 8. The group seperated in October 2001 after Yahtzee started falling out with the other members, who wanted to focus on solo projects.
