Last January, West Philadelphia native Yung Liv dropped his first video “Never Helped Out”, which currently sits at 53k views on Youtube.
Throughout the next nine months, he’d drop three videos that had similar numbers but nothing particularly eye-catching. However, Liv would drop a track alongside YH56ST that would blow up out of nowhere.
“Dead Oppz”, a song he didn’t even like at first, has since hit nearly two-and-a-half million views on Youtube and earned him a spot on Chicago rapper Polo G’s label “Capalot Records”.
The 19-year-old has made appearances in Elevator Magazine, Say Cheese TV, and Hoodlife Ent and his music continues to rake in views as his name begins to catch mainstream attention.
