Alhambra, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/09/2014 -- Some times the worst environments can produce the most talented artists. Case in point fast rising West Coast hip-hop star Yung We$t, who is doing everything possible to put Los Angeles hip-hop back on the map. Hard. His single “Bang Out” is being released June 10th on iTunes by LAB Records and the anticipation has fans on edge waiting. Many are betting that We$t's rapid fire flow is set to become part of mainstream music culture fast. “Bang Out” is just the beginning.
“We used to fuck around on the computer thinking we could rap and shit,” We$t commented. “When my sister got murdered in 2005, a lot was on my mind everyday... I really started getting into my music tough and recording more songs.”
Not only is We$t's flow and lyrics attracting attention, but both “Bang Out” and his upcoming EP “All or Nothing” are also getting praise from industry insiders for their hot, addictive beats.
Entertainment journalist Chuck Taylor recently said, “Produced by Kev Da Khemist, “Bang Out” is driven by plinking keyboards, a persistent beat and some groovy guitars—but it’s ultimately Yungs flow that commandeers the track.”
DigiIndie.com said online, "It takes a special kind of alchemy to be able to make your listeners want to bounce in their car with an artist who claims to have “survived more shootouts than a Vietnam Vet”. We$t somehow manages it. Despite delving deeply into the realm of murder-metaphor and gangster mentality, "Bang Out" remains a fun track to listen to and to play out loud."
LAB Records has quickly positioned themselves as the place to hear fresh West Coast hip-hop and Yung We$t is cementing that point in peoples minds. With a clear vision and undeniable talent 2014 is poised to be something special.
