Long Beach and Mobile Connect For This Soulful and Triumphant Ode to Boss Living
“$tupid Young, a Cambodian-American rapper from Long Beach, has a street-rap perspective that I’ve never heard anyone else bring.” – Stereogum
“With every passing YouTube hit, Cambodian rapper $tupid Young expands his reach beyond Long Beach and grows as a voice for his unsung background…$tupid Young has channeled his upbringing through his music to great success. His biggest hit “Mando” with Mozzy was one of the most magnetic songs out of Long Beach last year, and “Murder Scene” with Lil Durk is still electric.” – Passion of the Weiss
Long Beach rapper $tupid Young never fails to keep it real when reflecting on his transition from the basement to the top floor. On his new single “I Can’t Change” ft. NoCap, produced by Steelz, he lets us know he’s not changing anytime soon. Both of these rappers hailing from “the hood” without “much sh*t to do” are now living their dream come true and leaving others with envy, but they can’t blame the haters. An ultra-confident slapper that shows off the unlikely chemistry between Young and the Alabama-born NoCap, “I Can’t Change” follows “Wit A Sticc” ft. Tee Grizzley (1.7 million YouTube views) as Young’s second high profile collaboration in recent weeks.
Hailing from Eastside Long Beach, near the streets that birthed Snoop Dogg, $tupid Young built a huge following on the West Coast and beyond without any co-signs or affiliations. The Cambodian-American emcee has garnered over 132 million Youtube views, and over 80 million combined streams on Apple and Spotify. An unlikely success due to his heritage and his rough upbringing, $tupid Young embodies the underdog spirit, and his songs tell the story of a young man willing himself to succeed through hard work and dedication. The 27-year-old rapper has collaborations on the books with the likes of Lil Durk, E-40, Shoreline Mafia, Jay Park, and Mozzy, who connected with Young for the massive 2017 regional hit “Mando” (43 million YouTube views).
Finally ready to show the world what he’s fully capable of, Young is putting every thing he has into his upcoming album, his official debut after a long career of mixtapes. Stay tuned for more.
