Artist Name: Young Gxn
Latest Release: Way Gone
“Describing myself almost feels like I’m snitching on myself but for the sake of my story being told & being exposed to a much bigger crowd I guess it’s worth it for sure. I’m South African, born & raised in he streets of Ocean View, Cape Town. It’s simple really, with a city infested & poisoned with drugs, poverty & firearms the police wish they had, instead of becoming a victim. I became Young Gxn, the storyteller who put himself through hell & esstentially became heaven to those who blessed their ears with his truth. I’m your OG’s triple OG’s favorite rapper.””

Where are you from and what is the music scene like?
I'm from Ocean View, Cape Town. Outchea they don't show love if you ain't repping their struggle & especially if you don't sound as native as they do. That's why they love to hate me & I love it ♥
How have your life experiences influenced your music?
Ouh damn. My struggles pretty much made my music, if things were pretty I would never be this confident. Ultimately, rock bottoms taught me all I need to know. Having moved 9 times before the age of 22, I’ve seen & exprienced enough to know everybody ain’t for you, not everybody is about you. So YOU be about YOU. My level of self-love & respect in my raps is on god mode, allow me to accompany you on this journey of becoming more of yourself. Young Gxn ain’t for the people, Young Gxn is for the less equal.
