Better known by his stage name Youngsta, a twenty-one year old emcee who represents skill and a work ethic beyond his years.
Dubbed as Cape Town’s hottest new hip-hop force, being recognized was just the beginning for him. As an aspiring artist, he started the songwriting process at the mere age of twelve and recorded his first track that same year.
Youngsta spent his teenage years absorbing every aspect of the hip hop industry, which allowed him to formulate his own unique style and incorporate life as he knew it into his lyrics. Drawing inspiration from not just individual artists, but the industry as a whole, his lyrics are fueled with energy, emotion and the elements of life both on and off the Cape Town streets.
Youngsta recently released his latest “Flowing Through my DNA” – its music video filmed entirely by an iPhone 5. Directed and filmed by Adriaan Louw and produced by We-are-awesome Film and ANDPEOPLE for Red Bull Mobile South Africa, the video sees Youngsta rapping with his hometown as the backdrop.
