December Artist of the Month – Young Ent

 

Whats good.. My name is Young Ent. Ive been doing music for about 10yrs now. I was a late bloomer when it comes to music but god bless me with a wonderful talent I didn’t even know I had. I was introduced to music from my big brother Tu Tu G. If it wasn’t for him and On Da Grind Ent. I wouldn’t be doing music today. It was because he and the team inspired me to do it when I didnt believe in myself. I think the music scene is like a ocean but infested in sharks. Its alot of hate in Atlanta but not just in Atlanta but everywhere cause everybody now of days wanna be a rapper and with nessage behind it. I feel as some people have it… And some people dont. Music has changed so much substance wise. My music is more about my life anf situations that Ive been through. My music is real and truthful. I speak to be a voice to our kids and community. My single Im pushing as of now is #ComingForEverything Ive been pushing this record for 2 yrs now and it’s still making noise since the first day I dropped it. I would describe my music as il ( In your face ) motivation for others to be different and speak there mind. My last name is Young And I’m a vreat entertainer… So put them together… You get ( Young Ent ) In the next year I plan to be the biggest artist in the music industry since 2pac and Biggie. You can find #ComingForEverything on all music platforms and on my Youtube

( THEREALYOUNGENT ) One thing to know about me is I support everybody and not in competition with no one but myself. I want to be better than me everyday. A must have when Im recording is peace and quit to record… And one thing I can do without is people in my session while Im recording if there not on the record that is… When I work I want to work and zone out into the music.If I could work with any artist it would be Ludacris cause we have alot of similarities and lyrically I think he is slept on the must and dont get his credit when it comes to substance and delivery. What I want people to take away from while listening to my music is… Motivation that they can do what ever they want to do in life, just put ur mind to it, work hard and keep god first cause without him nothing would be posible. I see myself being very wealthy in 5 yrs and not rich… Its a difference. I’m a full time father and a ceo to my brand and company
( Derty Mid ) Which stands from Dirth South & Midwest put together. Im from E. Saint Louis, Illinois and I reside in Atlanta, Ga. Put them together and u get unity… 3/4 of the United States… If I can get everybody screaming it in unity… We can get ( Trump ) out of office 2020. You can find me on all social media at
( @young_ent )  and I want to shout out to god my family ( wife & kids ) my mother, God … My producers @bino100keys @fatt_onda_track @gee_ged @eastsideslimm @bloomondabeat @djstreetz905 I want to thank @Imdaplugg Mr Vandyke and anyone that has helped me along the way. Too many to name but I do remember those who helped me.
