    You need to keep your eyes and ears tuned to Euro in 2014. The freshest signing to Young Money Entertainment is a tour de force behind the mic. With an impenetrable flow, hypnotic cadence, and penchant for an unshakable hook, he's the next great MC of the 21st century, and he waves the flag for real hip-hop on three Young Money: Rise of an Empire [Out March 11, 2014] tracks including the first single "We Alright", also featuring Lil Wayne and Birdman and the utterly mind-blowing "Induction Speech" by himself as well as "Bang" with Cory Gunz and Lil' Twist.

    He takes this seriously, and he's spent his time studying the best. "For me, it's Jay-Z, Lil Wayne, and Drake," he affirms. "They're like the last geniuses living. Wayne took me in as family from the start, and he put me on a song. I couldn't believe that I'd be going to his house for dinner. It's crazy to me." As for "We Alright", he offers, "I put a lot into that verse. I'm letting people know I'm new, and I'm trying to gain respect. That's the mode I was in. I didn't want to waste time talking about anything crazy. If I would've dreamed about this moment, it would've only fallen short."

    That humble demeanor belies the fact that he is intense skills that will ultimately elevate him to the top. "I try to be genuine," he closes out. "I'm not phased by anything. I just want to protect who I am as an artist and that integrity like the greats before me."

    Meet one of the new kings of this Empire.
