YUNG KING was born in Statesville, NC in 1980, but resided in Troutman, NC also known as the "3 Stop Lights" for the majority of his life. He grew up listening to Eric B and Rakim, Master P, Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, Jay-Z, Biggie, Tupac, and a multitude of other influential artists. Music has always been on his mind and in his heart. Always knowing he had a passion for music, he decided to do something conducive with his talent and passion. So in 2002 he founded Grip tight Records. He had a vision and a promise to make hot music for the streets. As an artist he wants to bring reality to his music that people can relate to, or at least be able to grasp what is going on in his, and everyone similar to his environment. He felt that way then and still does. Due to complications within Grip Tight a break was needed to refine as a label and to regroup as artist, after a 5 year hiatus Grip Tight and Yung King are back on the grind and more seasoned and focused than ever. The King is very ready to take not just the South, but everywhere by storm, with the infectious beats and hooks along the reality of the trap, if you don't believe it, pick up his album SWAG OVERLOAD. The album is sure to be a hood classic full of swag motivation, and money generated songs. Pick up your copy and see for yourself....CLASSIC!!!
