Winning fans with melodic and poignant street anthems, Jacksonville’s Yungee
n Ace is the next King of the South. Any rapper can put together a posse for a music video, but few have the power to draw a crowd to fill a city block like Yungeen Ace does in his latest video.
Commanding his tribe of supporters in his hometown streets, Yungeen Ace flexes with Louisiana upstart JayDaYoungan, providing an inside look at his notoriously rough neighborhood. Despite the violence and poverty shown in the video, Yungeen Ace draws his energy from his homies, rewarding the faith of his true believers with the spoils of success.

Building up a profile with his crafty songwriting and expressive vocals, Yungeen Ace won the respect of many of his peers, ranging from superstar NBA YoungBoy to deep south veteran Mista Cain. Earlier this month, Yungeen Ace’s meteoric rise took a dark turn when he and three friends, including his brother, were attacked in a drive-by shooting. Though he attempted to shield his brother from the hail of bullets by using his own body, getting shot 8 times, as he told his 285k Instagram followers, Yungeen Ace was the only survivor of the shooting. After spending weeks recuperating in the hospital, Yungeen Ace has a new lease on life, and he intends to turn the tragedy of his brother’s and his friends’ loss into artistic triumph. Look for more music from Yungeen Ace to come this year.
Keyanta Bullard, better known as Yungeen Ace, is a talented 20-year old hip-hop artist making an early splash in the industry. Born in Chicago and raised in Jacksonville, FL (Duval County), Ace and his crew, the Yungeen Gang, have been recording and releasing music for a couple years now cultivating a loyal fanbase that supports their every move. Having experienced a lot of hardships growing up, Ace took his impressive skillset and contagious passion and put it all towards his music.
The first big moment for the southern spitter came in January of 2017 when the Yungeen Gang released a video titled “Go To War,” which ended up raking in over a million views (currently at 1.8 million) soon after its release. That pivotal moment gave Ace and his team the confidence to keep going. From there, the young and hungry rappers released multiple songs and videos adding to their fanbase by the day. By 2018, Ace had signed a deal with Cinematic Music Group and went on to release a slew of new singles to start the year. The first single, “All In,” was his passionate message to the world that he’s putting everything on the line to ensure success. That video has since reached over 3 million views, which led to Ace’s next three follow up singles: “Find Myself” (1.3 million views), “Betrayed” (1.2 million views) and “Gorillaz” (462,000 views).
All of these single releases earned Ace a ton of major press looks including coverage and support from the likes of Complex, HipHopDX, ELEVATOR, Miss Info, and so many others. In April and May of 2018, Ace gave two very in-depth interviews with both Vlad TV and MyMixtapez, explaining everything from how he grew up, to how he maneuvered into the rap game and much more. With about half of 2018 left, you can expect a lot more excitement from Yungeen Ace. That’ll include a slew of new music and visuals, as well as highly anticipated collaborations with NBA Youngboy and JayDaYoungan, who he’ll be touring with in August.
