Prior to that Project Black & Red was considered his best work to date. Inspired and influenced by fellow rappers from the city like Giggs & Wretch 32 the release was a cocktail of hip-hop, R&B, pop, rap and beyond.
Not to mention gaining a huge following over the years, including heavy support from BBC 1Xtra, the mixtape features some of the UK’s heavyweights such as Wretch 32, Krept & Konan and Stormzy!
The album went on to bag Yungen a nomination for a MOBO Award in the category of Best Newcomer.
From there he toured with Naughty Boy and has since shared the stage with the likes of Tinie Tempah, Emeli Sandé, Wretch 32, Stormzy & Krept & Konan to name a few, live shows & touring neither phase or are new to the south London musician.
