Is this the new Drake? The South London rapper is such an underground sensation, he has launched his own clothing line, Forever Yung. Since he released his SB.TV Warm Up Session on YouTube in 2011, he has made music with Chipmunk and Tinchy Stryder. Real name CJ Brooks, he was called “yungen” by the older boys in his area and the name stuck. His single “Money, Doe, Paper” is out next month. “I try to be fun and lyrical,” he says.
