Building up a massive grassroots fanbase on the strength of his aggressive and emotional street tales, Yungeen Ace is ready for primetime. The first salvo in a busy summer for the young Jacksonville native, Ace shares “Message,” a short and aggressive new video. Scored by uptempo minor-key arpeggios, “message” is a final warning for the opps to start running before he bares down their necks like his pet pit bull. In the video, the Cinematic Music Group mobs in the city streets with his homie and his fierce-looking pit bull, intercut with scenes set in a red-lit, plastic-wrapped room, reminiscent of the kill rooms from Showtime’s Dexter. Premiered by HYPEBEAST, “Message” follows Ace’s heart-pounding, boxing-themed video for “So Long,” which has 1.9 million views on YouTube. Enjoy this video stream below after the jump and please share this with friends.
“There’s been a lot of negativity around me this past year,” Yungeen Ace told HYPEBEAST. “There were attempts on my life, and I lost mud brothers and blood brothers. But now…I feel untouchable and I need everybody to know that I’m prepared to match their same energy- that’s why this song is called message. I got a lot of projects coming out, a documentary, a project with JayDaYoungan. I aint never stopping, I’m on they neck now you feel me–this is the year of ATK ”
Yungeen Ace broke out in a tumultuous 2018, which found the rapper experiencing newfound success and horrifying tragedy simultaneously. In June, right after he released his hit video “Fuck That” (11 million views), Ace was nearly killed in a drive-by shooting that proved fatal for the other three passengers of his car–his brother, his best friend, and another close childhood friend. The 21-year-old rapper coped with his conflicting emotions on Life of Betrayal and Life I’m Livin, his first two mixtapes. Released in August, Life of Betrayal hosted some of Ace’s biggest hits, including “Fuck That,” “Jungle” (11.9 million views), and especially “Pain,” which earned over 25 million views on YouTube. Dropped in December, Life I’m Livin finds Ace reckoning with his rise and with his past, as he tries to shake the habits learned in a rough neighborhood in riveting tracks like “KSO Homicide,” and warns others against living a life of crime in the tape’s title track. Look out for much more music from Yungeen Ace to come in the near future.
