Young Nah was born on May 26, 1989 in Philadelphia Pa. He first began his rap career at the age of 18, when he was signed to The John Whitehead Foundation’s independent label The Key of E Entertainment Group. While at the Key of E, Young Nah performed on a city wide high-school tour called “Put Down the Guns and Pick Up the Mic.” Around this time he started to gain interest from major record labels until The Key of E disbanded. After leaving the Key of E, Young Nah began working independently, until he was approached by Nicole Mayo, the founder of Artist First Entertainment, and former manager at the Key of E, about joining her Artist First imprint. After recording a few songs under the new company, Young Nah and his team started to notice an unusual change in his voice. During a trip to the doctor it was discovered that he had a lump on his vocal cords. In an effort to avoid surgery Young Nah was sent to a vocal specialist, and was put on a strict diet. After those methods failed he was taken into surgery on August 23, 2011, and after three weeks of resting his voice he return to hip-hop sounding better than ever. After doing a few guest versus for other artist, he began work on his first solo project entitled Rock Wit Me, which is entirely produce by Baltimore up and coming producer DeezleOnDaTrack. The first single off Rock Wit Me called “Too Original” was release via internet on February 14, 2012, and has sent been played on multiple internet radio station, and Official Smack Radio on 91.7fm in Philadelphia. Young Nah has performed in well-established Philadelphia based clubs such as Club 27 and Finnagans Wake, and he has a lot more show coming in the near future. Young Nah has been described as a breath of fresh air in an industry polluted with copy-cats. Because Young Nah does so many different types of records there’s no one to definitely compare him to. Young Nah, the future of rap.
