Jacksonville rapper Yungeen Ace’s meteoric rise to stardom concurred with unthinkable trials and emotional hardship in his personal life. In June, he and three friends, including his blood brother and his best friend, were attacked in a drive-by shooting, leaving Ace scarred as the sole survivor. In “Don’t Know Why,” the 19-year-old rapper’s latest video, Ace heads to church to ask deep and thoughtful questions of his Lord–why did his friends have to die before his rap dream came true? And why did he see fit to spare Ace and take his friends? “Don’t Know Why” is a moving and soulful rap ballad, with themes and songcraft equal to the highlights of Life of Betrayal, Ace’s mature and fully-formed debut mixtape. Enjoy this video stream below after the jump and please share this with friends.
Premiered by Billboard in August, the mixtape features several buzzing singles including “Jungle,” a poignant banger with an appearance from JayDaYoungan, which garnered over 5.8 million views on YouTube, “Fuck That,” (7 million views), “All In” (5.8 million views), and “Betrayed” (2.7 million views). Featuring an appearance from NBA YoungBoy and hosted by DJ Shab, Life of Betrayal released via Cinematic Music Group. Since the album’s announcement back in June, Yungeen Ace grew his Instagram following up to over 501k followers, and he will release more music as his star continues to rise.
