Young Dealz

Young_Dealz

When you think about rap’s beginning you think about the streets of New York City. Many rappers have emerged from New York and as many continue to discover their niche in the life-changing game of rap. In the midst of the crazy hustle of the city streets you’ll find up-and-coming artist Young Dealz, reppin’ East Harlem (specifically 105th Street & 1st Avenue). Young Dealz grew up in Wilson Projects as the oldest of six children. When he began high school he discovered and unveiled his ability to rap. He had a story to tell and so he began to tell it. This unleashing, motivated him to break his way into the competitive rap game.  
Breathing life back into NYC, Young Dealz brings a new energy to his audience; an aggressive, unique style called “RYDA Music.”  Young Dealz not only paints a portrait for you through his lyrics, but you can feel the colorful  emotional translation of his experiences by his  words. He’ll  walk you through his life’s  journey of  pain and joy  growing up in East Harlem.
He lives by the motto, “Go Hard or Go Home”, and he’s doing exactly that to claim what’s his.
