In the past decade, the global rap scene has exploded as more and more listeners have widely started listening to rappers, which has resulted in several rap songs topping charts internationally. Understandably so, this has produced several new rap talents over the globe who have made their mark on the industry and carved out a strong following. One such name that is being touted by many in recent news is none other than YungBlade, the 21 year old rapper based out of Ptolemaida, Greece.
His real name Agapitos Kakarikas, YungBlade has been working on his music for the past two years, and cites the likes of Travis Scott and Lil Pump as his inspirations. “I’ve been listening to these two incredible artists for a long time and at one point I felt like I needed to create something for the people just like these guys. I’ve never looked back since,” says the 21 year old Greek rapper.
In retrospect, YungBlade is still considerably young and from the looks of it, he has a great career ahead with plans of moving to America and making more music and reaching a global audience. Currently studying at the University of Macedonia, YungBlade’s love for music and rapping has made him write several songs and compose music which he has released on Soundcloud, Spotify and Instagram. Moreover, YungBlade has also performed twice in Thessaloniki.
As of now, YungBlade can be found working on some new hip-hop and trap tunes while simultaneously managing his studies. Notably, the Greek rapper not only writes his own lyrics but also composes the songs, which he relates to real life incidents. According to the young artist, “I use my songs to directly convey my feelings, hardships and love for music to all rappers.”
