“BOUT THAT LIFE VOL 1” !
(Bio below video via Digiwaxx.com)
“It’s the same old struggle tryin’ to get money, so when
you get money, ain’t shit funny”, words that Marcus
“Yung Double” Crooms lives by.
What happens when the tribulations of life seem to
dictate and conquer your triumphs?
There’s only so much that a person can take before they’re
overwhelmed with turmoil and long for the desire to have
peace and tranquility. It is at this crossroads where there
are only two ways to go: one way leads to failure and one
way to success. However, no matter which route you choose,
there will always be many lessons to learn. For Marcus,
while on the road to failure, he found a shortcut to those
successes. The streets can teach hard lessons and don’t
favor anyone. Marcus quickly learned this and as a result,
prison was like his second home. Being raised solely by his
mother, it was difficult for him to decipher his rights
from his wrongs – it left the feeling of emptiness that
could only be filled with fast money. This yearning quickly
began the destruction of his integrity. After going to
prison three times, he decided to become more constructive
and turned to his love for music. “My kids, my family’s
future, my friends and my city motivate me to record music”
he admits. Since his declaration, he hasn’t turned back
since and this is where YUNG DOUBLE was birthed.
You can get a clear depiction of Yung Double’s real-life
“tales from the hood” through his music. He’s seen and
adapted to the events of the hood – not the much
popularized façade given in today’s music.
His determination to not become a statistic gave him favor
and he was able to open for a few of today’s most prominent
hip-hop artists: Jeezy, Gucci Mane and
OJ Da Juiceman, to name a few.
With having the short-term goal of obtaining a
record deal, at the pace he’s going, he’ll reach his
long-term goal of having multi-platinum selling artists on
his own independent label. Life has a funny way of taking
us through hell to lead us to something greater. Our
troubles, faults, and mishaps are stepping stones toward
our pathway to success. Yung Double is determined to have
those successes. It’s not a matter of “if” he will be
successful, but “when”.
How much success will he have? Only time will tell…
