Young Life is out to prove that he doesn’t need the star power of artists like Rick Ross and Lil Wayne in order to earn some shine. Since he struck gold with DJBooth-charted #1 banger I’m A Boss, the California rapper looks to dig deeper with his new mixtape track, My Life. Off of the Hard Knock Life: The Black & White Print Edition mixtape, Life puts Compton on his back with a little help from Auto-Tune. If you can overlook the fact he isn’t T-Pain, the young (no pun intended) emcee exhibits a unique blend of Southern swag, New York confidence, and the West Side smoothness he needs to differentiate himself from Cali’s surplus of indistinguishable rappers. Produced by MG, My Life showcases Life’s inner Nino Brown – but with an abundance of charisma.
