New York author and lyricist William Young is making major noise with this new single “Harold At The Light” featuring Globe and Yay High. In its first week it’s already gotten airplay on Power 105, Shade 45, and XM Radio.
Born William De Jesus Jr, he burst onto the scene in 2012 with his attention grabbing novel ‘Gorilla Khan’. Featuring a cast of colorful and intriguing characters, William was able to draw readers in and create somewhat of a cult following of die-hard fans awaiting a sequel. Shortly after, he co-authored another entertaining book, “Brooklyn’s Own: The Notorious A-Team!”.
He went on to work with DJ Kay Slay to produce the Gorilla Khan soundtrack under his new pseudonym William Young. He has since transitioned into music and is currently receiving play on all the top New York stations including Hot 97 and Z100. He was also in The Source’s 2015 Freshmen Edition and has been in Straight Stuntin Magazine as well. He was also featured on Kay Slay’s famed “Enter The Cypher” on the track and video alongside Papoose, Chris Rivers, and Termanology.
