Young MG - Dirty Whine (Ft. Anna Awe)
Friday, December 15, 2017 - Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn, NY - Young MG Louis VIV, aka KingSaySay, Bedford-Stuyvesant born artist, rapper and emcee released his first official single record titled, "Dirty Whine." This Dancehall inspired Hip Hop track features local artist Anna Awe on the hook and S.C.R.D.'s Ravin Dave on composition and production.
The topic of this record, one considered highly sensitive, misogynistic and sexist by some listeners, is actually a dichotic reflection of the current environment. One the artist is living himself. Perhaps a case of greater good versus lesser evil, or rather just plain ego. Regardless, the sonic composition, lyrics and subject matter seem to divide audiences stuck on the fence of robbing peter in order to pay Paul.
Young MG, one of Brooklyn's many eighties baby's on the cusp of the 90's was born into Hip Hop music's golden years, which explains his study, articulation and knowledge of the genre. And his story, not unlike some of those who preceded him may sound familiar. At the young age of twelve, Young MG and his brother were forced out on the streets. The last decade and a half have been a struggle with far and few opportunities to follow his dreams, share a story or stay out of trouble.
