I'm a West coast based Writer/Producer Born in Stockton california in the early 80's made my first beat on F.L studio 1. Im also a part of the group SMOKE SQODD also based in Stockton I write my own songs can sing my own hooks right now I'm working with my management team McBride Entertainment on their first project . if u want to collab contact my Facebook. I created the name Orignal Blacktoven based on my first Beatsmith Handle Blacktoven I made up in 99'. Since then I've seen a few carbon copies so I slapped the Original in the front to let it be known I am the original, another reason is I like to make original beats more than sampling. even though I can sample as good as the best of them.... As far as Y.N.G cEL thats the rapper side of me im the originator of the abbreviation of young to Y.N.G which is short for my alias Y.N.G.I.N which is a acronym that stands for Young. Nega.Gettin. It. Now. I wrote my first rap @ the age of 12 & since then I knew I wanted a career in music by 10th grade I produced my first beat & recorded my first song. In 2001 I along with Mack Truck formed Smoke Sqodd productions we performed our music all across Northern Ca, My aim with my musik is to bring awareness to my city & life also stick to my roots & bring back the 209 Stockton California Sound that was made by the Pioneers before me also bring that rawness back to West coast Gangsta rap again.
I Make Musik for Hustlers,Gangsta & people that can relate to the stuggle of wanting to have more in your life but don't have the tools to do it some call it Being a product of your environment I call it living in the Murder Valley so if u didn't know I come from the streets so I speak for the streets .I've worked with Notable Artists/Producers/Labels such as McBride Ent, Seedless Records,Thizz Latin, 209VALLEYSTREETS, Vallejo T.V, Digi Wan productions,
