Yung King has always strived to demonstrate his artistic abilities through music. He became influenced by well-known artists such as Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, Snoop Dogg, and Tupac. Having grown up in an underpriviledged neighborhood in Sacramento, California, Yung King never expected to be given the opportunity to create music of his own. For years, he was met with many social and financial challenges. Despite such challenges, his parents provided him with the tools necessary to cultivate his natural talent.
At age ten, he moved to the Bay Area, located in Northern California. During his middle school years, his talent quickly became recognized by his friends and family after releasing his first song, "It’s All About Me." The song expressed Yung King's tendency to the old school West Coast hip hop style.
Yung King initially formed a small music group known as "Young Loyal Fellaz" with a close friend from school. After a few years, he left the group in order to pursue his solo career. He recorded five songs of various genres such as hip hop and R&B. The songs were sold as demos throughout California, creating a sense of statewide recognition. At fifteen years old, Yung King became a high school sensation of sorts. This further motivated him to create a studio at his own home, where he continued to write and produce captivating music. While he knew of his local success, Yung King felt the need to expand his fan base: to share his unique style with more people.
With such unyelding motivation, Yung King was able to perform at local parties and clubs around the Bay Area and Los Angeles. The acknowledgement he acquired from his fan base increased, but Yung King wanted to ensure its continual expansion. With years of experience under his belt, Yung King knew it was time to introduce his debut album. While the task proved to be challenging, Yung King managed to complete the project at the tender age of seventeen. His first album, entitled "Ages Of My Lyfe," became widely available on Amazon and iTunes. Today, Yung King devotes his life to writing, producing, and releasing new music.
