Meet The DMV: VA’s very own Yung Links

Virginia has been killing the music scene with an emerging new artist, today I introduce you to rap artist/producer Yung Links from Crewe,VA. Yung Links always thought his craft and gift would be centered around music and dance but years later he went 100% in with his music and started a Recording label, Link Squad Entertainment. He writes, records, engineers, and produces his own music. He has done music with producers such as Flowinhaze Beats, SamMurrayProductions, KekkoBrosBeats, Jcaspersen, TahjMoney, and more.
