When it comes to Chicago, the most amazing things about the windy city are often overshadowed by the images of violence and narratives perpetuated in media and they often obscure the fact that for decades Chicago’s music scene has birthed some of the most prolific artists in music. However, emerging rapper Yung Stakks courtesy of Chicago’s Westside is rewriting a new narrative one song at a time.
Yung Stakks is no stranger to adversity, as his father was a well-known gang lord in the windy city, and this sanctioned the young rapper to grow up in one of the worst neighborhoods on Chicago’s Westside. From being shot twice to surviving a major car accident, the Chicago native has undoubtedly defied all odds. Using his music as his escape, Yung Stakks would begin to emerge as one of the hottest rappers in Chicago. Yung Stakks has the privilege of being featured on Apple Music’s playlist that boasted a prominent feature on Forbes.
On his latest single “Swing My Door”, Yung Stakks gets an asset from Chicago rapper G-Herbo for a collaborative effort that’s sure to make its way to the top of playlists everywhere and dominate the digital charts. Check out the visual debut of “Swing My Door” on Worldstar Hip Hop and follow Yung Stakks incursion into hip hop prominence.
