YOUN’ LION ASKS WHY THE GUNS DEM RISE – He says too many young lives have been destroyed by the gun
Up and coming reggae/rap star Lil Lion, has returned with a new name and a new track. Formerly known as Lil Lion, Youn’ Lion has released a new track called Guns Dem which features Mr Absolute aka the Shaggy Wonder. The track produced by Horace Henry and Norman ‘Bobo‘ King for New York based Mel-Share Entertainment has been making an impact on the streets of New York and the Tri-State area.
Youn’ Lion has been on the grind for a while and is definitely growing into a top class act. His lyrics on the track are tight and he gives an accurate impression of the similarities between gun violence Jamaica and New York.
Youn’ Lion who hails for Brooklyn NY is no stranger to the music as he has performed on several big stages including the Apollo Theatre and clubs such as Club Amazura, New York’s hottest night club, Club Savoy and Arches in the Bronx. Lion has also done several hot tracks such as his collaboration Age Is Just a Number with Barbee, and his recent double video release Certified Clubbin and Lion.
The video for Certified Clubbin is overlayed on a Jah Snow Cone Productions beat and was directed by Dean Thompson and Dennis Thompson Jr. and Produced by Daine Clarke for Mel-Shar Entertainment.
The new release with Mr Absolute is a continuation of Youn’ Lion’s positive musical journey. Youn’ Lion grew up on the streets of the Bronx and knows the effect the guns have on the youth and the community and throughout the song gives personal and anecdotal accounts of life on the streets.
“A lot of young lives have been destroyed by the gun and a lot of young soldiers who had great potential could not fulfill this because they got messed up,” Youn’ Lion, Mel-Shar Entertainment Artiste observes, “The song is just a positive call to my young brothers both in New York and Jamaican to not let the guns rise cause when the guns rise we fall.“
Continuing his musical journey, Youn’ Lion is definitely poised for big times with his wicked flow and his collaboration with Mr. Absolute. Guns Dem is sure to be a hit with the fans.
