Rapper, songwriter. Born Gary Alexander Jr. on August 14, 1980, in Berkeley, Ca. under the astrological sign of LEO, Gary adopted the rap name “Yung Gee” after family and friends from his neighborhood kept referencing him as a "Young Gangsta". Gee is coined as the latest rap phenomenon to come out of the city of Oakland of today's most talented rappers, Yung Gee has been creating rhymes since he was a child. He grew up in West Oakland, one of Oakland's poorest neighborhoods.
He embodies true thug-life to the fullest, and then some. His blood gauging lyrics will leave you cringing and wounded. A hardcore runner whose thugged-out persona leaves admirers and challengers for the chase—Simply put: Yung Gee keeps it so real, one look and, he’ll make any “Ruff-Neck” go soft. And these aren’t attributes he chose to take on willingly, these traits stem from personal experiences that have molded him to be one of the most grimiest and most lethal rapper around today.
Now, unleashing fire on his solo debut project, “Street Musik,” Yung Gee drives skills so hard not even the strongest MC can break ‘em. Still a committed member of the LUT squad, Gee rips chests open and leaves hearts hanging for questioning. You’re either with him or against him, plain and simple.
The streets have taught him what it means to be LOYAL, to be aware, to beware and to know that life spares no one. “I basically grew up in the ghetto like most black boys,” says Gee. “My dawg C.O. and I use to go outside for the hustlin’. We started off “baggin’ up” and then started "grindin’. Ya know, the regular stuff young boys do in the ghetto.” Drugs, guns and shootouts become routine in the streets. Gee had to decipher between who had his back and the people who tried to knife it. “Those N*ggas are still my dawgs and I’ve got to respect everything I’ve been through,” testifies Gee. “Even though I rap I still got the same n*ggas from day one.”
In the future, Gee plans to establish the LUT Foundation, which will mentor young males between the ages of 10-24 on the importance of “Education over Incarceration.”
