Bio

Born to Antillean parents both immigrants, Yung C. came to light in Amsterdam in the mid-80’s. After living on Curacao for 8 years he came back when he received a soccer scholarship. But after not making the transition to the pro-league plus a growing passion for music the choice was easy to make. In 1999 before going solo, Yung C. formed a group by the name of Project GNSS along with longtime friend Alphachild. Creating a city buzz in their hometown by recording and performing all over the country and opening up for acts such as Xzibit, Ludacris and Rahzel they took their grind overseas to New York. By promoting and selling their cd’s out on the streets they ended up having meetings with various labels such as Rocafella, Queen Bee Records and also Duke The God, A&R of Diplomats. They also got more attention by performing and doing interviews on the radio such as NYC #1 underground radio station 91.9 fm. Also the mixtape “From Amsterdam to New York City (Coming II AMERICA) got bootlegged and moved an estimated 1,000 units. “Not bad for an up and coming group out of Europe that people never heard of before. We were actually happy we got bootlegged. It got us out there” Yung C said. Along the process they met Mid-town mc Vain Lane who eventually became a good friend. Vain introduced them to DJ Kruz from Harlem and very quickly they had their own movement going on. Kruz took them to Miami where he had a getaway so they could do promotion in the South. “That’s when we was making a name for ourselves internationally on some independent shit and started 456 Music. People were seeing that and respected the grind. We weren’t just in these streets but the Internet also showed a lot of love”. But despite the international growing buzz Project GNSS suffered a split up in 2006 leaving Yung C. up to pursue a solo carrier. “Aint no love lost. Everything happens for a reason. We will reunite one day cause it’s Project GNSS forever. Things happen for a reason.”

So now on a solo route Yung C. has recorded songs with up and coming artist and also big names in the industry such as G.O.D. of PitchBlack, producer team LokkenLoad, Canadian Dj Denox, German team the RPS fam and much more. “Music is something you wake up with, eat and sleep. Not just Hip Hop but every type of genre. If you an artist you should loose yourself in it.” Hip Hop fans appreciate Yung C. repping his hometown Amsterdam. With his music being influenced by the best of both world being Europe and the US, Yung C. provides you a unique type of sound hoping to bring that one extra thing what the music industry hasn’t heard of yet. “I sound like weed mixed with hasj” is a description he likes to use. With no one out of Amsterdam breaking through internationally yet, Yung C. is determined to be the very first one. The streets co-signed us, the females is loving me so tell me where could I go wrong. With his first solo independent street album “1 Foot In The Door” out, Yung C. keeps walking his road. That road that eventually will lead to success because failure is not an option.
