Bio

The lungs are the organs responsible for producing the oxygen necessary for the human body to function. With that in mind; the Chicago emcee Lungz has emerged attempting to provide that same type of sustaining breathe to hip hop that is necessary for its own survival.

The lungs are the organs responsible for producing the oxygen necessary for the human body to function. With that in mind; the Chicago emcee Lungz has emerged attempting to provide that same type of sustaining breathe to hip hop that is necessary for its own survival.
Carrying the banner for both the north and the south sides due to his upbringing, Lungz represents a new vangaurd of young, capable Chicago lyricists who not only deliver intricate rhymes but infuse them with the street ambience and real life authenticity to create an audience packed with both backpackers and thugs. Lungz speaks intensely regarding what he has created; “This is powerful, emotional music for all occasions. I want you to be able to put this on when you are driving down lakeshore drive in the summer with the top down and a cup of something”.
Immersing himself in such legendary musical influences as Mobb Deep, Busta Rhymes, Jay-Z, Pharcyde, ATCQ, Al Green, and Curtis Mayfield; Lungz has been able to successfully transition from being just a respected battle/freestyle rapper to an artist capable of crafting songs utilizing a wide range of cadences and rhyme structures.
Lungz acknowledges his now infamous “My Town” which created a fervor after Chicago Rocks 2007 as being not a defining apex; but only one of many more anthems to come. He refuses to allow himself to be characterized by only one song, when there are others that he feels challenged him more to create such as “Times Up” and “Incredible”, and therefore have more significance to him as a demonstration of what to expect in the future.
Recognizing and embracing his growth from a youth to a young man, Lungz is giving his breakout E.P. the appropriately title “Transition”, which represents him leaving “all the dumb shit” behind and evolving into a complete artist. Lungz wants you to experience his life through his lyrics, and not the fantasy world so often portrayed in rap.
With A Breathe Of Fresh Air mixtape already available, Lungz is poised to release his first E.P. in 2009, as well as “StoryTellers” as a supplementary mixtape.
