The up and coming 22 year old talented rapper Yungen is currently doing big things in the grime underground-going-mainstream scene. This South Londoner, hailing from Brixton, is known for his metaphorical bars and powerful flow; he’s got skills for sure. Yungen is definitely one to watch out for 2014 but for now check out his mixtape album titled, Topic Of Discussion. The album has some pretty decent club banging songs, and I’d say the album is a mixture of hardcore hip hop, & urban UK RnB.
His mixtape album, Topic Of Discussion was released in April 2013.
I had the chance to listen to the songs on the album. My favourite songs are Insomnia, On A Wave, I’ll Be Back, F**k Them, 21, and Taylor’s Room Part 2. The reason why I have chosen these six songs is because I find them brilliant - wicked tracks, and to be honest the rapping is phenomenal in its own right. I believe Yungen has proven to be one of the finest Brixton home grown rappers to come out.

To be honest I only started hearing about Yungen in 2012, when he featured on Charlie Brown’s track titled, Dependency, alongside Ms. D. That’s when I knew this guy could seriously rap, and as I started to hear more of his music this year with 22 Cake, which I think is the best grime tune for 2014, I have become a fan and he continues to grow on me. If you’re into grime, you might wanna check out Topic Of Discussion by Yungen, which you can currently download online for free (link above).
