Reap Youngin – Visions of the Top

After everything that he’s faced in the last decade, from incarceration to the loss of one of the most important and influential people in his life, the title to his debut solo mixtape “Ten Years In The Making” seems to fit perfectly. Born and raised on the west side of Worcester, Massachusetts Reap Youngin began writing at the age of 15 and soon realized he had quite a way with words. In 2006 he moved to Macon, Georgia where he hooked up with some local artists and recorded the collaboration mixtape titled “We Hot On These Streets” Also, having not been home in 4 years he felt he needed to reconnect so he dropped a freestyle to the Game’s “One Blood” instrumental, which set the whole city on fire, solidifying his spot on the local rap scene. From 2010 through 2012 he released “The Pregame” ep and was also on an array of features and appeared on compilation mixtapes such as the Street Kingz “We Get It In” and the first two installments of the Mass Appealtv “Get Ya Verses Right” series hosted by DJ Motion. In 2013 Reap felt like he had to take a step back and put things into perspective. Deciding to take all the gain, loss, love, heartbreak, triumph, and defeat over the last decade and put it all into one project being released under RL Music Group, which he says is proving to be his “best body of work yet”.
