"Who is YOUNG KING DAVID (YKD) PT1 and The "TURN AROUND" PT2"

According to scripture, King David was a mighty warrior from the Old Testament. We have a present day squire who belts out “praise” to defeat the enemy while he sing praises to the “King of Kings”.

Who is Young King David? Young King David (also known as David Holmes), is a 29-year-old Jacksonville rapper who is steadily catching the attention of many local youth and educators. His sizzling southern rap style spices up the ‘Word of God’, and his lyric content incorporates a unique blend of educational principles while delivering a complete spiritual experience in Christ.

His debut album, College Graduatewas released on September 25, 2010 and doesn’t fail to deliver banging beats and flaming lyrics. The album also “gets its swag on” with songs like ROC WITH THE ROCK- a party starting anthem; PEP RALLY,and a rock out banger such as SUMMA CUM LAUDE;just to name a few.

Overall, the album College Graduateis a raw testimonial of Young King David. In this victorious lyrical biography the artist takes listeners through his graphic journey going from being abused by his mother (addicted to cocaine), to skipping school and selling drugs on the street corner. College Graduate talks about what motivated Young King David to give his life to Christ and take his education seriously.

“I grew up in Washington Heights (an improvised neighborhood in Jacksonville), it was my hood and I know a lot of my friends that never finished High School and many thought college was a joke or purely unattainable. I just want my listeners to know no matter your “hood” you can tap into your inner motivation which is Jesus Christ and finish what you start and see the value of being educated,” said Young King David.
