Yung 16 / Bio

Born and raised in the hoods of long island new york , Sean " Yung 16 " Hall had thoughts as a little boy that "the life im living cant be all there is to life". At the age of 9 just playing around one day he freestyled his first song titled "L.O.V.E". After that his self confidence signifcantly rose. At the age of 10 his father gave him his first ever C.D which was Lloyd Bank's The Hunger For More. listening to his unorthodox style full of wordplay and punchlines Sean started to love music more and more which made him look into alot of diffrent styles of rap. He started listening to the late great Notorious B.I.G, 50 Cent, Styles P, Eminem, Slick Rick and many more. At the age of 11 his favorite Uncle, Rodney Whitehead passed away which made him very sad. With the pit in his heart unfilled he seeked and found music to heal his wounds. At the age of 12, he learned what punchlines were and started rapping with them in his verses. He didnt understand what a bar was so he just said it how he felt it. At the ages of 13 and 14 he honed his skills and started writing down his thoughts in sentences but the age of 15 was when he took his lyrics to the next level. One day at high school he decided to battle another rapper from the school in the cafeteria and lost without saying a word. That same day after school he met Rasheen " Young Ra " Harrison. Rasheen let him hear his remix to M.I.A's Paper Planes and Sean loved it. Rasheen sat Sean down and taught him what a bar was and how to line them up. That day was the start of a lifetime long friendship between the two. From the age of 15 up to recently he has yet to drop his own mixtape. He quotes " I couldnt drop a mixtape of my own yet because, I didnt feel I was ready to take that next step but now after just getting home ii feel a hunger in me that deserves to be satisfied now ".
