Up from the grimy roots of dirty south hip hop, College Park, Georgia-based artist, BRAVO YOUNG has emerged an undeniable talent. Armed with gut-punching lyrics, verbal dexterity and the skills to flow over beats that keep the ladies jigglin’, it’s no wonder he’s called the B Young Forever. With a sound that swings from ominous and threatening to seductive and humorous, Bravo Young has been branding his name in the streets for years as one of the best, now it is time for the pay up.
Young and driven, Bravo Young independently released his first album Homegrown. The record created a local buzz in the Southeast off of the success of the bangin’ first release single Okay. Even without the support of radio airplay, Bravo Young was able to move over 3000 units and he sold them all from the back of his trunk. Refusing to rest, B.Young went on to release a mix tape CD entitled CP 2 the TV to let the streets know that he was serious. The grassroots-supported single “Okay” then caught the attention of club owners, DJs and radio personalities and the song hit the airwaves on powerhouse stations V103 and 97.5 The Beat.
No stranger to performing, he’s taken the stage in support of his releases, proving he’s as comfortable getting nasty on a stage as he does in the booth. He’s shared the stage with other top artists like Ludacris and Field Mob in addition to holding it down at Blues in the Alley, Royal Peacock and a host of other venues throughout the southeast. Additionally, he performed by request for Ray Buchannan’s daughter, Destiny for a taping of MTV’s “My Super Sweet 16.”
Bravo Young has also collaborated with an army of underground DJs and Producers including Rusty James (Beat Bangaz), Danja (Unified World Ent.), DJ Brad (Legion of Doom) and The Agency. However, his latest work with Reggie Rock of Rockstar Beats that his work has taken on a new color and feel that’s forging hit-making gold.
Mixing his flow with Reggie Rock’s beats has already led Bravo Young’s work being featured on episodes of “Candy Girls” on E! Entertainment Television. Like heroes Dr. Dre and Eminem and Eric B. and Rakim, the duo is quickly becoming recognized as the latest in a long line of respected hip hop artist-producer pairings. With Reggie Rock’s beats to inspire him, their upcoming album will be nothing short of groundbreaking.
