With strong Harlem roots and down south grooming,Young Caliber is self-proclaimed to be the next best thing to hit the music scene. Infamously known as the “North-South Kid”, Caliber brandishes his skills to integrate both the swagger of New York Hip Hop with the hard bounce of the South, culminating the “best of both worlds”. As a child, writing rhymes and playing basketball were two skills that came natural to Young Caliber. He attributes his love for Hip Hop to legends like Kanye West, Notorious B.I.G. and T.I. Being raised on the tough streets of Harlem, until he was eleven years old, Young Caliber found himself in and out of the juvenile system for most of his young life. Eventually getting on the right track, Caliber finished high school, in Hilton Head High, SC; he was given a partial scholarship to play basketball.
After a year and a half of attending college, and struggling to maintain financially, Caliber realized the NBA wasn’t in his future and decided to leave the university. He soon moved back home to Bluffton, S.C. where he focused on perfecting his writing skills, and devising a plan to break into the music industry. With a hustler’s grind and determination, and being the only member still able to pursue their dream, Caliber decided to go full throttle and pursue a career as a solo artist. Over the next few months, Caliber worked diligently in the studio recording music, and in 2008, he released his first mixtape ‘The Heart of the Streets’. The mixtape received rave reviews and street credibility. In 2013 Young Caliber dropped a single called “ALL on ME ” which garnered support and spins from 93.1, one of South Carolina’s biggest radio stations. 2015 has proven to be another great year as Caliber has just released his first new single “LoCo” which is available on iTunes currently! Young Caliber has been making an impact on the industry and has opened up for T.I., Pastor Troy, Trina, Yo Gotti, 2 Chainz, and many more! Caliber is currently working on his fourth mixtape, ‘Now or Never’ which is slated for release late winter. Music lovers can expect to hear a refreshing sound that blends the North and South to perfection. Take a listen to “LoCo” below!
