Back to Player  

Coming straight out of Long Island rap duo Blao Blizzy & Passport General have a fresh and innovative sound that hold its own with today’s main stream artists. In 2012, Young Paper wisely added singer/ producer Draii Rynell, also from Long Island, to the group and are now called “YPG.” YOUNG PAPER GENERATION is a worldwide global movement of young rappers, writers & producers determined to chase their dreams despite their surroundings. YPG's Blao Blizzy's love of Skateboarding Competitions inspired the young writers to come up with a new hit called, “KICK FLIP” to a base knocking beat produced by Draii Rynell of YPG. YPG’s aim for “KICKFLIP” was to create an anthem for skaters that will get their adrenaline pumping as they bravely do their tricks. In addition, YPG has coined the term "Kick Flip" as a popular synonym for “making moves” or getting things done. Label Face Entertainment created the 5 city YPG Kick Flip Concert Tour which kicks off at Charm City Skate Park in Baltimore, Maryland Nov. 10th, 2012. Young Paper Generation is set to release their hugely anticipated single, "Kick Flip," on ITunes in the Fall of 2012. YPG's mix tape, “Time is Paper" Vol. 3 is also set to be released in the Fall of 2012. The trio were all born and raised on Long Island, NY however rapper Blao Blizzy, Bilal Butler, lived in North Carolina for some of his pre-teen years. You can hear that New York swag in his delivery with a southern bounce in his flow. Rapper Passport General, Don Gorham, is slick with his word play with the a raspy voice and delivers cockiness in his lines. The duo won the attention of the President of Face Entertainment at an open mic on Long Island in September of 2009. Under new management, they created a name for themselves, “Young Paper.” Young Paper, now YPG, began taking NY’s showcase scene by storm, winning every show they entered. New York’s Power 105.1fm debuted 3 songs off their Time is Paper Vol. 1 Mix tape. Young Paper has opened for many major acts such as: YOUNG JEEZY, RASCO DASH, PLIES, TITY BOI AKA 2 CHAINZ, RED CAFÉ, GUCCI MAN & FUTURE to mention a few. Although YPG’s dreams are to become major recording artists, they have managed to balanced their careers and their commitment to being college students seeking to obtain a solid education. YPG is also seeking to expand into television, movies, fashion and create their own line of skateboards. .
