LOU PRODUCTIONS COLUMN ARTIST REVIEW: YOUNG STRESS

Young Stress

Young Stress

What it do Inland Empire!

It’s ya girl, LUE and I’m back with this week’s artist review. This week I am happy to feature one of the hottest Hip-hop artists from the Inland Empire, Gerald Martin also known as YOUNG STRESS. When it comes down to performing and getting the crowd going this artist always delivers.

YOUNG STRESS is a  rapper, producer and engineer who was born in San Bernardino, California. He started music at the tender age of 5. Coming up under his father who was an amazing pianist and his talented uncles, Young Stress learned how to play the drums and piano by ear. Realizing his talents, his parents and older sisters kept him involved with music. At the age of 17, he learned how to produce his own beats. After mastering the skill of producing he began to write, rap and perform.

This young man has been on several radio shows and has performed throughout Southern California and beyond. When it comes to having faithful and devoted followers, believe me when I say, he got it. I’ve seen him pack a house first hand. He drives the young ladies crazy with his looks, locks and lyrics. If you haven’t heard his hit “Kurt Covian”, you must check it out. A crowd pleaser fo’ sho’. Make sure you remember the name because this artist is going places.

 

For more information on this talent artist please look him up under “YOUNG STRESS”, on Facebook, Reverbnation and Soundcloud. Until next week!
