On Saturday, The Maids of Mirth will fill the streets of Mobile with beads and moonpies, then Mobile rapper Yung Bleu will keep the night moving with a homecoming after-party at Soul Kitchen.
The Azalea City is filled with would-be hip-hop artists, but many lack the hustle and dedication to make it into the regional or national scene. Yung Bleu began recording his lyrical goodness before he entered his teen years. While most students were planning for college, Yung Bleu spent his high school years perfecting his production and solidifying his verbal flow. Eventually, Baton Rouge-based rap superstar Boozie Badazz discovered Yung Bleu online and recruited him for his Bad Azz Music Syndicate.
Yung Bleu returns to Mobile to celebrate the release of his latest collection, “Bleu Vandross 2.” The rapper has given his followers a smooth mix of R&B, hip-hop and soul filled with sonic seduction and lyrical prowess. His patented delivery mixing soul’s heartfelt crooning and hip-hop’s verbal flow shoots to the forefront of this collection, which should be well-received by the crowd. Yung Bleu’s new material should thrive in Soul Kitchen’s live environment.
