Talented South-London based rapper Yungen has linked up with outstanding newcomer, Yxng Bane for ‘Bestie‘ – and you can listen to it now on the Shoot Music – New Releases Playlist.
Parties, deserts and clubs in Dubai giving the backdrop to a story all too familiar to the viewer, while finessing over smooth verses and an afrobeat/rap fusion of a chorus, Yungen and Bxne fall for the same girl… or do they?
It’s the perfect track for the summer – infectious, energetic and bouncy, making this one of the most exciting artist link ups of the year.
Shortlisted on the BBC Radio 1Xtra One To Watch List in 2016 and maintaining his success through a string of releases, Yungen still stands as a standout artist able to play a sold-out show at KOKO earlier this year without a project!
Tracks like ‘Take My Number‘ and ‘Do It Right‘ have highlighted the incredible storytelling of this South London native. MOBO nominated, Yungen has cut tracks with major players, from Sneakbo to Wretch 32 to Haile, to Krept & Konan.
Lauded by everyone from Complex to Evening Standard, he is starting to make the breakthrough to the mainstream, having appeared at Wireless Festival in July, headlining the second stage in Finsbury Park.
