Yung Ayee, Street Team Entertainment


One of the most exciting new talents to hit the streets for many years, Yung Ayee is storming his way into the Midwest Hip Hop scene with all the ingredients needed to take on not just the Indie community but the entire music world where it hurts. Many are touting Yung Ayee as the next big thing to happen to Hip Hop and Rap and comparisons have been drawn with some of the biggest names in the industry such as Pusha T, Big Sean, and Rick Ross. Yung Ayee’s latest single “Go For What You Know” was released on August 8, 2013 and immediately started making waves across the internet and even onto some FM markets and college radio stations.

Yung Ayee has loved his music all his life and has been creating and performing it for almost as long. He was born Shajuan Butler in St Louis, Missouri on 29 December 1990 and almost from the moment he could walk he loved the Hip Hop and Rap music his older brother Sterling was always playing around the house. He was very young when he started writing his own raps improving and perfecting them for many years until he started performing them at just 13 years old. He continued to write and freestyle throughout his time as a teenager and in 2004 his brother, now Sterling “The Reason” Butler, signed him on to the record label he had started with in-house producer David “Duke Lamarr” Johnson, Street Team Entertainment, under the stage name Yung Ayee.

Although in 2010 he went to Greenville University, Illinois on a basketball scholarship, he soon dropped out in order to concentrate on his music. On his return from college he fell out with his parents and as a result found himself homeless, yet the eight months this lasted gave him time and motivation to continue working on improving his craft. No Street Team’s flagship artist Yung Ayee released his first solo mixtape titled “The Renovation.” With production from a few different producers such as Bill C Da Don, Duke Lamarr, and County Boy Frizz, the main focus of the tape was to show his versatility.
