The Complete Guide to “Young” MCs

Denver’s Westword blog has you covered if you’ve ever wondered what’s the difference between Young MC, Young Jeezy, Young Buck, Young Bloodz and more.

?Young this, Lil’ that, MC whoever. In hip-hop, the moniker often packs as much punch as the artist’s lyrics. Take Jay-Z, (Sdot, Jigga, Hov) or any member of the Wu-Tang Clan (Ghostface Killah: Tony Starks, Wally Champ, Iron Man). Despite over-use (and various spellings) of “Young,” all prefixes are not created equal. In honor of Young Jeezy’s upcoming show in Denver, we’ve compiled this guide of every “Young” MC you should be familiar with.

Though “Bust a Move” will always be the song Young MC is known for, “Principal’s Office” is his main jam.
