Critical Praise:

“Already, he feels incapable of mediocrity and when the fire flashes – we freeze.” – Passion of the Weiss

“As a young rapper from the talent hotbed that is Florida, Yungeen Ace has found a way to stick out, slowly building a name for himself through his work.” – XXL

“Yungeen Ace borrows melodies from fellow Floridian Kodak Black, meshing his sound with that of NBA YoungBoy’s to tackle a vibe of his own.” – HotNewHipHop

“The pain in Ace’s voice is palpable but is paired with some surprising positivity in the lyrics throughout.” – Elevator Mag

The Project:

Infusing his rap anthems with bluesy melodies and heartfelt lyrics, Yungeen Ace has lived a thousand lives in his 19 years. Grappling with guilt and his newfound fame, Yungeen Ace shares Life I’m Livin, his new project. Comprised of nine hook-filled standouts, Life I’m Livin finds Ace taking stock of his place in the world, trying to shake the habits learned in a rough neighborhood in riveting tracks like “KSO Homicide,” warning others against living a life of crime in “Life I’m Livin,” and rhyming from the perspective of his late brother 2X in the harrowing “2X Screamin“: “Mama mama, save ace for me/He’s all alone crying inside and no one can see.” The new project hosts the single I Can’t,” dropped earlier this week to the tune of over 538k views on YouTube, which finds the Cinematic Music Group-signee speaking out against the justice system and faithless friends who sold him out. Life I’m Livin debuted via Audiomack, where it immediately became the #1 album in the platform’s trending charts.

Life I’m Livin is a spiritual sequel and a worthy follow-up to Life Of BetrayalAce’s debut mixtape, released this past August. Premiered by BillboardLife of Betrayal hosts several buzzing singles including “Jungle,” a poignant banger with an appearance from JayDaYoungan, which garnered over 9.3 million views on YouTube, Fuck That,” (9.5 million views), “All In” (7.2 million views), and “Betrayed” (3.3 million views). Since the album’s announcement back in June, Yungeen Ace grew his Instagram following up to over 700k followers, growing at rate of more than 10k followers per week. With Life I’m Livin, Ace is ready to take the next step from upstart to institution.

The Background:

Yungeen Ace has built his massive following by standing alone. At 20, the artist born Keyanta Bullard describes his city of Jacksonville as “a jungle.” Originally a Chicagoan, he moved to Duval County, Florida as a child with no friends. Despite 11 brothers, Ace learned fast that if he wanted to survive, he could only rely on himself. “It’s hard out here. Everything we do, we gotta fight for it. We’ve got to go above and beyond just to make it. The surroundings are crazy. It’s a creep city. Nobody is for you out here, so you have to be really for yourself.” In June of this year, Ace was the lone survivor when a car he was riding in was ambushed by a drive-by shooting on Town Center Parkway. Three friends died. Just freed after a bid, the moment was a painful and chilling reminder of the violence epidemic for Ace. It was a dark spot in an otherwise upbeat time. The rapper recently signed with Cinematic Music Group, a label responsible for propelling key new musical voices into the mainstream. With his debut mixtape Life of Betrayal having dropped this past August, Ace is next.
