Da Younger was born in Chicago, Illinois on September 13th, 1990. He moved to Iowa in 2006 where he graduated from Valley High School in 2009.
Da Younger had some troubled teen years that eventually sent him to prison where he was sentenced to a mandatory 17 years, but the courts over turned his sentence on an appeal 3 yrs later due to a wrongful conviction, and insufficient evidence.
After hitting rock bottom, Da Younger finally decided he was going to change his life and do what he knew best, which was music. He started playing the piano at the age of 10. Da Younger said, “I never knew how to read music but I could always hear it for some reason and learn to play by ear. “I got started sneaking and playing the piano after church and wen school was over tryna impress da girls on some look wat I can do type ish until i really started slapping dem keys for real”
Da Younger hit the music scene 7 months ago and has been working nonstop ever since. He partnered up with his manager, Porsche Lee earlier this year and together have made the Midwest start whispering and wondering what they have up their sleeve next. It started off with his first mix-tape “Scriptures,” and things have been looking up ever since. Scriptures is a inside look into Da Younger’s life where he tells stories of his lifestyle, survival and struggle.
