Get To Know: Yung Fume
This UK rapper is about to take over, get to know him before he blows up right here.
Yung Fume is a rising UK rapper straight out of London, and he’s finding his own in his experimental style of rap.
Already having collaborated with the likes of AJ Tracey, Yung Tory and America’s Lil Durk - the singer has a back catalogue of creating bangers with artists from all over, and he’s only just getting started.
With nearly one and a half million views on his latest music video ‘Secrets’ on YouTube, and over 10 million streams on his feature with Nines for ‘Oh My’ on Spotify, the singer is garnering a lot of attention - and it’s all down to his raw and authentic talent at the young age of 21.
Now, hot off releasing his ‘Noughts and Crosses 4’ mixtape, and supporting AJ Tracey on his UK and Ireland tour, the singer is heading out to headline his own shows - and we couldn’t be more excited to see him before his brand new songs whilst coming into his own.
