In an industry where the “big conglomerates” market the next generations next superstar, there are many groups and artist that are taking their fate and career into their own hands. Some have been doing their craft for multiple years and have made good careers without the spotlight. Now the goal is almost always fame and stardom but for some artist, they manage to make careers while they wait. I call it patiently waiting.
The 1st question that Yung B.E. is always hit with is what's with the name? The B is for his first name Braxton and the E is for Emanuel which means God is with us. So when you add the E it's to show a new person in Christ. What he does through rap is a musical expression of his Christian journey. But how do you get the message from pulpit to the street? You need a bridge, so to create that bridge he turns his sermons into 16s! Yung B.E. was born and raised on the Southside of Houston TX so his musical roots are planted deep in the sounds of Big HAWK, Big MOE, Big Pokey and Lil KeKe. Often compared to Lecrae, Yung B.E. brings a unique approach to the Christian Hip Hop movement. Yung B.E. is up next.
Check out his flow and interview in this week's patiently waiting segment.
