South Jersey’s Young Kage is capitalizing on his writing abilities by applying them to his passion for music, and it is paying off. This upcoming rap artist who once excelled at writing essays now writes rhymes that are making the internet jump, and that is a win-win for Kage. Besides the praise that his fans pour over his songs, music also helps Kage cope with his problems on a personal level. “It blocks everything out around me,” he said.
But one thing that is not getting blocked out is Young Kage himself who is doing big numbers on YouTube and Spotify. In fact, his biggest single, “Get Em,” has over 1.1 million views. All of this success, however, has not gone to Kage’s head as he continues to grind everyday, running his own record label (Black Royalty Ent.) and putting in time in the studio. “It’s a process with music,” he said. “[I] have to put in the work [and] be dedicated & passionate at the same time. If it comes easy, you wouldn’t want it.”
But while Kage acknowledges the challenges that he faces as an artist, his confidence in his abilities supersedes any hurdles that he might encounter. “I will definitely be a big artist soon,” he said. He is well on his way.
