Young Bleed


Young Bleed is an American hip-hop artist based out of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Since his chart-topping 1998 release "My Balls & My Word", Thug Drama, a ghost producer, introduced Young Bleed to Master P in 1997. Young Bleed has been a mainstay of the Southern hip hop underground, narrating his vision of life in the urban South.

Young Bleed’s first glimpse of national fame was when his song with C-Loc, "How You do That", was remixed by Master P of No Limit Records. It was released on the 1997 soundtrack to Master P’s film "I'm Bout It" which peaked at number one on Billboard R&B/Hip Hop album charts in mid-1998. Then with the help of Master P, he signed a deal with Priority Records to release his major label debut album "My Balls & My Word" in 1998. The album peaked in at number ten on the Billboard 200 and number one on the Top R&B/Hip Hop album charts and also reached gold status in the U.S. The follow-up "My Own" was released independent of No Limit on Priority Records, charting on both the Billboard 200 and Top R&B Hip Hop albums charts.

Young Bleed joined C-Bo's West Coast Mafia Records and released "Rise Thru da Ranks from Earner Tugh Capo" in 2005 and "Once Upon a Time in Amedica" in 2007.

In 2011 Young Bleed was signed to Strange Musics subsidiary called Strange Lane Records. His first album with the label entitled "Preserved" was released on October 11, 2011.
