Young Gully hails from the streets of East Oakland, CA and has made 11 mixtapes and one official album by the age of 26. In 2010 he released The Grant Station Project in response to the killing of Oscar Grant and donated all the proceeds to Grant’s family. In 2011 he earned a spot in the Bay Area Freshman 10, which consists of the best up-and-comers before they blow up.
It’s difficult to categorize Young Gully’s music as anything but “in-betweener,” in the sense that he does a little bit of everything and doesn’t limit himself to one particular area. He seamlessly moves through styles such as gangster, party, political, and conscious raps, while having even more under the surface. Young Gully’s Hustla’ Movement Vol. 5 (HM5) offers a glimpse of the emotional struggle he endures as a hustler on the streets of East Oakland, CA. He does this without glorifying any particular aspect of the lifestyle as well as with an unbreakable determination to better himself and make it out of the ‘hood. There is no other HipHop like conscience HipHop Gully is apart of the small elite group of Emcees who choose to keep Real HipHop alive. Check him out below and tell us what you think. Someone use to say we only feature East coast rappers...WRONG. We only feature lyricist and REal artist on here.
