Yung Liv

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.

Yak Yola

In the span of just one year, West Philadelphia native Yak Yola has become one of the most promising talents in the city. His track “Demon Flow” hovers around 300k views on Youtube while his tracks “Blow”, “All In”, “Take Off”, and “Go Getta” range between 120 and 220 thousand views on the same platform.

Yola has been cosigned by Meek Mill and comedian/social influencer Gille Da King and made music with New York up and comers Sheff G and Sleepy Hollow.

Outside of music, he’s partnered with fashion brand Face Your Fears which has exploded in the past year becoming a staple of Philadelphia streetwear. The rapper rocks a custom iced out chain that dawns their signature FYF logo.

Alamo Records recognized all of this potential and signed the young artist a couple months ago. After months of anticipation, Yak Yola dropped his mixtape “Misunderstood” on Wednesday.
