YungeenAce, a priority artist for Cinematic with a similar voice to rappers like NBA Youngboy and Kodak Black, has just released a new track “Jungle” ft. JayDaYoungan. Yungeen was released from jail in Jacksonville, Florida last week after surviving a tragic quadruple shooting earlier in June, but is eager to keep pushing forward having already released six songs so far this year, including “Gorillaz” (feat. Og 3tree), “Fuck That,” and “Find Myself,”. Yungeen Ace’s debut Mixtape, Life of Betrayal will be out next month on July 13th.
Alluding to the struggles Ace has faced living in Jacksonville, FL, “Jungle” is about the impermanence of life, taking chances, living his life in the present, and doing everything he can to escape. “Jungle” has a sorrowful melody, with uplifting lyrics that inspire hope and healing in the wake of tragedy; a theme both deeply personal given Yungeen’s recent tragedy, but also for many others in the hip hop community at as present.
