18-YEAR-OLD NORTH PHILLY RAPPER YXNG K.A SHARES VIDEO FOR “A.M. THOUGHTS”

Raised in the Abbottsford Homes family development, YXNG K.A began exploring music as an emotional outlet and escape from his troubled surroundings before he started releasing his steady string of hits. “Coming up in the projects, you grow up different and you learn fast,” he says. “There’s always violence and drugs, and if you don’t adapt you’re gonna be lost.” As his prodigy-like ability became overwhelmingly apparent, YXNG K.A’s breakthrough single “Forever Committed” led to his signing with Interscope Records in May 2019. The following February, he made his label debut with “Soul Bleed, an emotionally raw single showing off his tremendous range, melodic flow, and fearlessly honest lyrics. Released in May via Double O Records/Interscope Records, his debut EP, Baby Reaper spotlights the phenomenal talent that’s earned recognition from heavyweights like 21 SavageMeek Mill, and many others. Baby Reaper also landed YXNG K.A a major-label deal just months after creating his first song. Now, he is gearing up to release his second EP, Reaper SZN via Double O Records / Interscope due out 12/4.
