SKWEEKYKLEEN aka young hustle / Press

“When you think of Washington, D.C. and Hip-Hop artists like Wale come to mind quickly, but the movement hasn't stopped with just Wale. Enter Skweeky Kleen, another D.C. emcee on the rise and making a name for himself in the industry. Yo! Raps had the chance to speak to Skweeky Kleen about his biggest musical inspirations, his latest single Get Mine, the D.C. Hip-Hop movement and the origin of his name. First off, let's start off with your name Skweeky Kleen. How did you come up with the moniker? I got the name from never getting caught up in the streets. You would never suspect me. You seen the movie Fresh? Well, I was a "fat fresh." [Laughs] It's been noted that you've been rapping since the age of 14. When did you know that music was the career path for Skweeky Kleen? I say about 19. By that time, I had a couple of songs out and the response was incredible so it made me believe that it was truly possible. ”
