One thing is clear about Prince George's County's Young Sir: The dude has a knack for rapping deep into the camera, with a determined look in his eye and a confident bounce in his body language. His latest video, for "Eitha Way It Go," is a mix of quasidocumentary party footage and some staged shots in one of those highway overpass cages; whatever the setting, his presence bubbles to the front. The song is from Young Sir's latest mixtape, Da Recognition 2, which came out at the end of December. —Joe Warminsky - Washington City Paper

It goes without saying when mentioning all of the talent in Washington, DC. As a whole, the DMV area is full of talent and it is only a matter of time before more artists in the area gain national attention. But, in the case of Young Sir, it is more like national recognition, as he has delivered his latest mixtape, Da Recognition 2. Young Sir manages to keep the collaborations to a minimum, leaving listeners an opportunity to fully focus on him. DJ 5150 is hosting the mixtape. - Hip-Hop Live TBTENTGROUP


Back in October when we dropped the hot video “Rollin” into the OnStage Video Showcase we figured 2012 would a real breakout year for DMV artist Young Sir. Now, I.A.M. Music Group has announced the release of his second mixtape N.E.M. Nothing Else Matters and the lyrical growth is evident. We held off on posting anything until we actually listened to the whole project on datpiff.com. If you haven’t heard it we highly recommend you check it out. Pay special attention to the 9th track, “Secrets” our personal favorite. It’s an excursion through the growth of an artist, a mixture of optimistic swag coupled with the realization that success in the music business means essentially doing it on your own. If you don’t get a co-sign you still have to grind, if you don’t get a feature you still have to keep working. That’s a strong theme throughout the tracks and a good indication that Young Sir is poised for bigger things. Keep checking for Young Sir. His management team is the highly respected I.A.M.

Bio

“I am not a rapper. I am music. I am cultural. I am creative. I am hip hop.” ~Young Sir

...and they call him “Young Sir.” Lyrically known as “Young Sir”, Taj Jamal Diggs was born June 1990, in Baltimore, Maryland but his family eventually relocated to the Washington, D.C. area. Young Sir graduated from high school in 2008 and began pursued his college education in journalism afterwards. Entering his sophomore year, he decided to suspend college to focus and dedicate himself to his passion for hip hop and pursue his career goal to become a hip hop artist.

Since childhood, Young Sir has been commended on his ability to write. From an early age he has had a desire to express himself and that his voice be heard. Raised in an environment where respectfulness and good manners were strongly encouraged, he was certain to address adults as “Sir” or “Ma’am;” when elders asked a question of him, his answer always began with “Yes/No, Sir” or “Yes/No, Ma’am.” Because this was a rare practice amongst his peers, it earned him the moniker (and now alter ego) “Young Sir.”

In 2007, Tru Identity, a newly formed Go-Go band comprised of 7 young, talented musicians tapped Young Sir to infuse a hip hop flavor to the Go-Go sound. The group disbanded, however, in the summer of 2008 as the band’s members graduated from high school and moved on to different life pursuits.

With a growing fan base and reputation, in 2009, Young Sir decided to begin his solo quest as a hip hop artist. Young Sir is noted for his apt freestyle ability, creative lyricism and edgy flair. In April, 2011, he dropped his debut mixtape, ‘DA RECOGNITION’ which garnered approximately 7500 visits in just a matter of weeks. Beyond expectation as his first official release of his compilations, ‘DA RECOGNITION’ significantly increased YOUNG SIR’s fan base and captured a tremendous “buzz” nationwide. He is presently working on his sophomore mixtape—‘NOTHING ELSE MATTERS’ to be released in Fall, 2011.

President Barack Obama was quoted as saying, “The potential for [rappers] to deliver a message of extraordinary power that gets people thinking [is there]. The thing about hip hop today is it’s smart, it’s insightful. . .” With that said, it is apparent the legacy of hip hop continues, to be taken to the next level by new artists for generations to come.
