Coming from the streets of West Louisville’s emerging rap scene, Young Loe has released his first album titled “Small Thangs 2 a Giant” and has expanded his sound to appeal to a wide audience ranging from street music to club bangers. Working with the music magician G-Sharp he’s managed to put together an unforgettable excerpt of what he not only feels about the urban turbulence but what he truly lives.
With the inspiration from an uncle, a gift of rap was inspired to the hip hop artist Young Loe; Tom Tom was the person that kept the rap artist biologically known as Lawrence Porter under his wing since day one and encouraged him to follow his dreams and taught him that self-confidence would take him a long way through life. Living by the motto, “Even when it’s nothing baby, it’s always something” (Dru Down) makes “Keeping it real and given you what you want” a true meaning of what Young Loe strives to deliver to his urban audience.
Taking the art of rap serious in the year 2005, the rap artist released his first album in 2008 and discovered the importance of having a serious business plan in order to produce and distribute his music world wide; believe that having a superior product and professional team of people who can assist with his career will enhance his career and by knowing what the industry is calling for made it possible to develop his own entertainment company “Play Yo Cards Ent, LLC”. Making his company official Young Loe has sold over 2,000 units literally from the trunk of his car.
By allowing development and growth, the rap mogul has performed at various open mic sets and has distributed his music via internet in order to reach his targeted fan base. Planning for bigger and better adventures the rapper has studied business management at the infamous Devry University in order to gain the much needed education in order to take his company to the next level. Working side by side with power players such as Waymon Eddings (Oil Can Media) and Mike Baker (DSL Solutions) Young Loe has managed to massage many relationships within the music industry that has embraced his efforts and has placed him in perfect working environments.
Young Loe prefers his audience to know that all though presentation is extremely important along with being compatible, he wants them to know that within his music craft he is constantly thinking out of the box when it comes to the production of his music material and that he is inspired by writing reality music that delivers positive messages. With a combination of an R&B groove, a touch of gospel and lacings of funk Young Loe delivers an old school feel of music that is capable of catering to a broad audience.
By changing the music game, Young Loe feels that the industry has become too trendy and it has loss the real essence of hip hop from where is first originated. Young Loe would like to place more messages within his genre and wants people to be able to relate to his material. Young Loe states “There are more elements to music than just a beat and a popular dance”.
