When it comes to rapping, 24-year-old Yungen is packed with a flare that has the potential to stretch into the distance, beaming back toward the nation’s consciousness. In fact, that’s exactly what has already happened. In 2016 Yungen captured the attention of Britain’s rap fans with a series of tracks that eventually catapulted him into the top-tier of Twitter’s trending topic list and, in a weird yet no less impressive feat, the news-room of Channel 4 news.

For those in the know, the rap-star’s consistent benchmark of lyricism has for a long time been on the lips of the scene’s luminaries. For example: his release Project Black & Red reached the coveted Number 1 spot in the iTunes Hip Hop/Rap charts when it was released in 2014. In 2015 he was nominated as Best Newcomer at the MOBO Awards. In 2016 he was included in Vevo’s & BBC 1Xtra’s Hot for 2016. Then there’s the fact that three exceptional barometers of taste have championed him: Jamal Edwards, Stormzy, and Krept and Konan.

Yungen’s steady rise & progress year on year is evident and is a testament to his artistry. While some artists have a single-lane focus, in which they look toward a money-pot rather than something meaningful, it’s the drive and determination of those South London estates that arguably run deep into the foundation for Yungen’s career. That’s not to say he doesn’t have big ambitions, because he does. Rather, he’s not the sort of artist to forget about his structural roots.

Having already shared the stage with the likes of Tinie Tempah, Naughty Boy, Emeli Sandé, Wretch 32, Stormzy & Krept & Konan to name a few, live shows & touring neither phase or are new to the south London musician. He’s already toured the world twice performing in front of 10’s of thousands, as well as headlining 2 of his own headline shows at O2 Academy Islington & Village Underground, Yungen is embarking on his first SOLD OUT UK Tour in April 2017 with a London date at Koko, Camden
