After releasing a sinister lead single with “Jugg”, Southside Chicago heavy-hitter Yung Gwapa will release his fifth and critical album, “NO”.
The “Jugg” emoter has began the roll-out process by releasing the music video to the street-enamored anthem that has so far garnered close to 150,000 organic views in three months, and a 25-episode series titled “Jugg” is set to premiere fore-fronting his directorial and film-writing skills.
With anticipation for the full-length record brimming, Gwapa also known as WOPO to his core fanbase has built up expectation for the upcoming release enclosing this is this will be the project his growth, authenticity and hunger manifest:
“If they really listen to my music and put two and two together, they will see I’ve been around this music shit for a while” he said in a recent interview.
“(There’s a lot of) Growth and secrets, hunger, passion and real authentic” he continued when asked about what audiences could expect from the bubbling project soon to drop.
Yung Gwapa has been a cornerstone to the rise of Trap Music on the mainstream realm, as well as one of the most consistent Hip Hop elder statesmen still active.
Starting off in a group in Chiraq, Wopo continued with his music pursuits to make it big in music while the rest sabotaged their dreams. The idiosyncratic act would then release his first professional debut in 2015 on I Can’t Help It, a collab project with Club da CookUpBoss before unleashing his single debut in 2016 with O.T.S that featured fan favorite “Fucc You Thought” featuring Takeoff & Juugman.
O.T.S was a street staple supported by features from some of the most promising acts defining the Hip Hop soundscape such as Blac Youngsta, Rich The Kidd, Eastside Peezy, Icewear Vezzo just to name a few. The projects were emblematic of the eerie Atlanta street sound that gave birth to various Hip Hop stars from the region, both on production and the talent domain.
In 2018, Re-Rock would be uploaded to all streaming sites, and by his fourth body of work, he would have established himself and his own independent record label – Black Heart Music – inevitably allowing him to operate as a CEO in the music business, and sign the burgeoning rapper, G Sambo – who has made a name for himself, working with acts such as Asian Doll in the process.
Following a three year hiatus after quarter-backing G Sambo’s music ascension, working on acting and filming, not to mention his popular clothing brand Richnigh The Brand, Yung Gwapa will launch his long-awaited project that is projected to be another streets classic, mixed with some mainstream pop appeal, and huge surprise collaborations.
