With hip hop screaming for help, the breath of fresh air Young R brings is such a relief. What’s great about Young R is that you will fall in love with his music and background. This amazing artist is a recent Engineering school graduate who is also working on getting an M.B.A and taking over the music industry at the same time. His music is electric. Every song sounds like he knew it would be his last. Born on January 28, 1988 in Macon, GA and raised in nearby Juliette, GA Young R is the voice of the yet to be respected Middle GA area as far as hip hop music.
In 2009 he recorded and released his most successful single to date Anotha Planet. Anotha Planet would spark millions of MySpace plays and YouTube Views, thousands of digital downloads and a business negotiation with Jive Records which would cause a verse from multi-platinum artist Lil-Wayne to be recorded for the song. Young R has also performed with numerous major artists ranging from Monica to the Plain White Ts. All this was done while being a full time student in engineering school. With a B.S in Industrial Management to fall back on he has his sights set on becoming a hip hop legend and mogul. In his own words, his goal is to prove that nice guys don’t finish last! Young R was also a recent finalist in the Georgia Lottery All Access Music Search. As a finalist, Young R was able to perform during halftime of the Atlanta Falcons vs. Green Bay Packers game in front of 70,000 people and also perform on national TV during the finale of the music search while being judged by major music industry names like Dallas Austin and Monica.
