Music Artist, Rap : April 12th, 2013

Rapper Yung Reno gives new meaning to the rose that grew from concrete. Originally born Nicholas Hamilton, the New York City native grew up in the crime and drug ridden streets of East Elmhurst, Queens. Growing up, Reno took interest in the regular activities of kids his age. He’d never publicly showcase his rapping abilities and was a little caught off guard with the responses that he received when freestyling with friends at school. “I was in 6th grade at a talent show. Me and a group of my friends performed a song and when I saw the reaction, I knew this was what I wanted to do.” From that point on, he aggressively worked towards what he hoped would soon become a successful career in hip hop, performing whenever he got the chance: in freestlye battles, appearing on several mixtapes and independent albums, as well as school events and concerts. Another part of Reno’s past included membership in a notorious street gang, this is also where he received his name, a name that would later become his rap alias, Yung Reno. “I got it from an older member that I used to try to emulate. It was his name and since I was his lil homey, he gave me the name before he passed.” Wanting to live outside the stereotype of black males in NY, Reno entered Howard University where he met long time friend and now manager, Brandon Mimms. Mimms, CEO of the renowned Street Composed Entertainment instantly signed Reno to the SCE family. Though he listened to different genres of music, Reno says that artists like Mobb Deep, Jay Z, 50 Cent, UGK, and T.I were his musical influences. But he promises originality, “I’m a poet who speaks of life experiences-from the street life and the love life to the party life-like no one has done in years.”
