Young Vim the name, HoodAfricanz the game. Young Vim has been putting it down since 2005, but has been singing since the first grade. Always in talent shows – singing and dancing, winning most of them as well, Young Vim – a Ghanaian native, joined the drama club as a young boy which gave more chances to show off his love for music and dancing. In grammar school Young Vim won a talent show with “The Tong Songs, which made him know as one of the best dancer and singer around the northside of Chicago, and this was before the rap skills landed.
In high school Young became a big fan of “Cash Money Records”, and knew almost all the songs CMB made from head to toe. Vim started to write his own raps and at the same time was one of lead singers in his church, he tried to make beats by beating the tables at lunch for others to rap, and man, he was good at it too. But he knew he was better than all of them, but he took his time to study the way he was going to bring himself out.
After high school Young Vim started DJing and still singin while brushing up on his rap skills, while in collage. After college, is when he started to take the rap game head on, about the same time he came across MoBeatz and that’s when the game started. MoBeatz make the beatz and Young Vim put a flow to it, and now they make hits together.
