North Carolina Artist YungYungYungN Releases New Song Inspired By Civil Unrest


Durham, NC (PRWEB) May 30, 2015

Coast 2 Coast Mixtapes presents the release of the “Trapped” single by YungYungYungN. This single is currently available to view on the Coast 2 Coast Mixtape website. Inspired by the civil unrest in Baltimore Maryland over the death of Freddy Gray and all the recent cases of Police Brutality, recording artist Yungyungyungn releases the ever so timely record Trapped which narrates the plight of the disadvantaged worldwide.

Every so often the public is graced with a phenomenal Artist who serves as a connector to the masses with the delivery of a message and sound that distinguishes out of the box creativity. Rising from the sounds of tapped in southern cities, 28 year old YungYungYungN out of Durham North Carolina found a sound lane that caught on and hooked music listeners all over the globe. The popularity of his electrifying track She Can Twerk Like You caught the attention of the WWE Total Divas Reality Television Show soon thereafter, the musical pied piper of clubs instantaneously drew fans and was coined The King of the Club Bangas. YungYungYungN ushering in a genus of multiple styles within the genre of Hip Hop, has rapidly become a fan favorite and has them on constant alert for more of his diverse style of music. Yung Yung YungN a proficient hook and songwriter always knew that he had skills and entered the music scene on a high note.

In 2004 he signed with The Bear Records, an independent label from Philadelphia. Yungs ambition and business acumen didnt stop there and he was led to work with the infamous Ruff Ryders record label out of Yonkers, New York. With the support of the Ruff Ryders camp, 2007 found YungYungYungN busy with recording, performing and being developed into an absolute entertainer. Using the knowledge he gained with Ruff Ryders, Yung returned to his native Durham, North Carolina and in 2011 formed the group XO Project, with two other members. The success of the group set off the release of his first regional radio hit Tweet Me. Yung gave some flavor to the track by presenting fans with a taste of his silver-tongued vocals. Swiftly becoming the standout member of the group XO Project Yung drew the attention of labels and was noted as being an artist that is destined for greatness. Accomplished with performing live, gaining the attention of loyal followers and being heard nationally on terrestrial radio, Yung turned it up a notch and in 2013 decided to relocate to Atlanta where he established his career as a solo artist.

In 2014 Yung joined forces with Grammy award nominated Producer M16Beats on the widely held mixtape Street Astrology. With first rate production credits YungYungYungN enchanted his listeners with a sound that encompassed earthly soul, captivating hooks and copious bars that inspired and captivated the audience. A message delivered by a top-tier Emcee who flowed about vital life challenges that have been wedged into the hearts and minds of many diverse music listeners. Yung wanted to engage the club goers with an infectious sound that would send them competitively rushing to the dance floor and in Spring 2014 he released his second hit single Twerk Fight produced by the Atlanta based hit-making duo The Presidents.

Following-up with the tremendous success of Street Astrology Yung continues to offer his original depiction of Hip Hop Soul from an urban angle that acknowledges a community of listeners who are handicapped by social issues. Street Harmony bids listener to an album of encouragement entwined with the probable struggle of todays youth. CEO of Hood Rich Djs, OG Hood Rich reviewed the five track album and expressed Thanks for letting me check out the new project. My take on this album is that u have a refreshing way of laying down good topics mixed with well written songs but done in an unusual format that meshes hip-hops edge with a down home soul feel. Addicted and Trapped shows out of this world range as a artist. But, Get Money and Aint I Clean shows that your lyrical pen game is on point. I think u are a modern day male Missy. Song writing will give you staying power in this industry. I give it a 9.2 out of 10. YungYungYungN cutting and bleeding over tracks, delivering melodic hooks, affirming solidarity with fans worldwide, has become an entertainer that leads the masses to music that is spirited and fortifies the hip hop community with a refreshing message. The future is luminous for this trend setter and you will see Yung involved nationally in cooperative projects geared towards social issues and music that brings about positive transformation in the lives of the listener.
