Yung Juko’s story practically writes itself. His now manager was hounded to listen to “Trust Nobody” for 6 months before he relented. He was instantly hooked. This 21 year old singer/songwriter from Lafaytette, LA can sing. He decided to back him. Trouble was, they were met not only with a great deal of resistance in the beginning, but absolute ridicule. You see, Juko was diagnosed was Spina Bifida as an infant; a spinal deformity that causes a curvature of the spine and affects both one’s height and gait. People asked Brandon, “Why are you wasting all this money on a little cripple kid? He ain’t about to do nothing.” Well, the video for “Trust Nobody” just went over 800,000 views on YouTube in just 3 short months with over 13K likes. It also hit #1 on Billboard’s Hip Hop / R&B chart and #2 on their Hot Singles Sales chart. The best part of it is, “Trust Nobody” is the first song Yung Juko ever recorded and he bought the beat from some random producer in Shreveport, who was selling beats online for $25. I couldn’t make this shit up.
Here is Juko’s second video, “Learn From The Streets.”

School maybe about three weeks away, but a fire summertime banger is always a good way to savor the season, and with his latest track “Call Me Papi”, Connecticut emcee Future Allah is ensuring he prolongs the heat.
The record (produced by Flex Beats) features a building, layered instrumental,familiar themes and favorite hood past-times like stacking your paper,flexing and reminding those around you about how you’re living: “I’m getting money,ma/ My bitches they call me Papi/I count it a hundred times/That’s cause my pockets sloppy.”
While the song could easily rely on the catchy chorus alone to pace the song, Allah goes on to offer lofty verses, containing more substance and length than your average stunting-for-the-summer song. “Call Me Papi” is most definitely a fun track but the lyricist himself comes from very substantive roots. Not only is he the son of a writer, but he chose to take on the heavy alias of Future Allah (due to his influence by the Five-Percent Nation) and all the criticism that can come along with such a significant name.
You can check out more from this eclectic artist on his website FutureAllah.com, where his Love Me Now EP is available for streaming.
