17-year-old Brooklyn based Trini emcee Young Devyn, a senior in high-school has been hailed as one of the most versatile artist with lyrics that can massacre any contender, male or female in a cypher! But on this day she smiles innocently at Sway reminding him that she may need a school excuse for missing class to rhyme in the “Dooms Day Cipher,” which airs on Sirius Satellite’s Sway In the Morning hosted and created by the legendary journalist and media personality, Sway Calloway.
The “Dooms Day Cypher” isn’t for the meek, it’s a celebration of hip-hop where rhyme slingers bring only their most vicious bars. It gets so intense that Sway has dubbed the MCs “Hyenas” because of the hunger you hear in their verses. “This ain’t about how many records you sold or how many views you have or who co-signed your career,” Sway says about the show, but Young Devyn is primed for all of that and more.
The industry is already taking notice! TheSource.com has called Young Devyn, “The Next Queen Of Hip-Hop?” Actress Taraji P. Henson (Fox TV’s “Empire”) took to Instagram posting in almost all caps, “This young lady @youngdevyn is here to stay!!!! THE GAME NEEDS HER!!! I NEED Y’all to know her name. She is gifted and Y’ALL NEED TO KNOW!!! No 16-YEAR-OLD spitting like this period!!!” At the time she’d posted Devyn was 16 and just bodied the 16s on “Friday Fire Cypher” which aired September 22nd. Sway, Heather B, Tracy G, and DJ Wonder host of Sirius XM’s Sway’s Universe were stunned! “Hip-hop is safe, the future is safe,” exclaimed Sway! So astounded by the lyrical heat, Young Devyn, was spitting, Taraji posted a second time and Devyn’s Instagram nearly tripled overnight. Of course, this led to rumors of a possible Fox TV Empire appearance.!
