North Carolina hip-hop duo Jae Mansa are excited to share their socially conscience new music video “Yung Kings.” The song is the title track from their Yung Kings EP available now through their equity distribution deal with Roc Nation.
“The goal behind every video we shoot is to teach, inspire or inform. I’m not talking down on nobody else, but it’s pointless for us to shoot a video just to shoot it,” explains Jae, one-half of Jae Mansa. “With Yung Kings we aim to inspire our people. Despite how America treats us or how many of us are killed for no justifiable reason, you can’t erase the fact that we are descendants of KINGS.”
“Yung Kings” follows the group’s breakout song “Fate” that’s gained over 3 Million plays on Spotify and landed on blogs, playlists and radio support. Bouncing off a string of shows including showcases at SXSW and opening up for for Money Bagg Yo in Savannah, GA, Jae Mansa is maturing both on stage and in the booth as they prep more visuals and new music to release this Summer.
“Everybody thinks rapping is just getting in the booth, but it’s way more to this industry,” says B. “You gotta go state to state, promote your music 24/7. It’s fun for us, but there’s a lot of work that goes into it. If you think it’s an easy job, forget about it. We’re constantly on the road and as soon as we’re home, we’re back in the studio. The grind never stops!”
