Straight out of Music City, Jung Youth represents an energetic sound rooted in collaboration and versatility. Six years ago, he relocated from Louisville, Kentucky to Nashville for a music program at Middle Tennessee State University. Mere hours after arriving, he would meet a community of musicians that would ignite change in sound and direction. Developing into a performer rocking stages with his variation of bands and captivating ciphers, Jung Youth was eventually named a Red Bull Sound Select Artist. Through that program, the Wu-inspired MC who reworked Prodigy quotables found himself sharing concert bills with deep influences like Mobb Deep and Raekwon & Ghostface, as well as Juicy J. June’s Stay Chill, his biggest release to date, finds the freestyle-savvy MC focusing on melody, reflective writing, and growth.
