WITH A UNIQUE GIFT AND LOVE OF WORDS IT WAS ONLY NATURAL THAT YUNG LISTEN FOUND A HOME IN THE HIP HOP INDUSTRY. WITH SPURATIC SUCCESS (RADIO, AIR PLAY, LOCAL SHOWS) YUNG LISTEN WAS WELL ON HIS WAY TO BECOMING A HOUSEHOLD NAME. UNFORTUNATELY LIKE MOST SUCCESS STORIES THERE WERE PATCHES OF TIME WHERE LISTEN LIVED FROM HIS CAR AND WONDERED WHERE HIS NEXT MEAL WOULD COME FROM. LISTEN REBOUNDED FROM THOSE ROUGH PATCHES AND PERFORMED WITH THE LIKES OF NE-YO, J. COLE, PUSHA T, AND IS SCHEDULED TO PERFORM WITH DRAKE AS PART OF HIS CLUB PARADISE TOUR.YUNG LISTEN WILL BE RELEASING HIS UPCOMING MIXTAPE CALLED DEMO:LEARN TO LISTEN WHICH IS THE FIRST OF MANY TO COME FOR 2012.

WHEN ASKED ABOUT HIS MUSIC AND STYLE YUNG LISTENED REPLIED, “I AM NOT A RAPPER I AM A LYRISIST WHO HAPPENS TO BE DEVOTED TO THE RESSURECTION OF THE HIP HOP INDUSTRY!”
