01. Level 3 (feat. Boosie Badazz)
|Originating from Mobile, Alabama, Yung Bleu (born Jeremy Biddle, 1994) started rapping at age 11. However, he first got into the rap game and entered the public arena in the early 2010s after watching his brother interact with local hip hop circles. He self-released mixtapes like 2013’s Hello World before eventually getting involved with Young Boss Entertainment, who helped the young artist release some of his early tracks to a broader audience. In the coming years, Yung Bleu produced an ongoing installment of mixtapes, titled Investments, Investments 2, Investments 3, and so on. In 2019, the rapper released the sixth and latest installment, Investments 6, with features from PnB Rock, Lil TJay, and more. During the mid-2010s, he developed a working relationship with Boosie Badazz, collaborating with him on several tracks and quickly landing a deal with Boosie’s Columbia Records-affiliated imprint Badazz Music Syndicate. He broke out with the 2017 single “Miss It” (100M+ streams). This would set off a series of streaming hits like 2018’s “Unappreciated” (75M+ streams) and the Kevin Gates-assisted “Ice on My Baby” (75M+ streams).|
