Yungen Early Life

Brooks was born and raised in Herne Hill Estate. Although his lyrics expose the darker side of his childhood, he often expresses gratitude in regards to his upbringing. In an interview with the Evening Standard, Yungen stated, “Growing up on an estate was everything to me.”

Brooks’ friends on the estate nicknamed him ‘Yungen’, which later gave him the inspiration for his stage name. From the age of 13, Brooks was inspired by an older cousin to try MC’ing, but his shyness prevented him from seeing it as a potential career.

Growing up, Brooks listened to a diverse range of genres, enabling him to draw on a variety of influences in his songs. Combining his older sisters’ influence of RnB and artists such as Jagged Edge, with his father’s background as Hip hop DJ, meant there was a diverse range of music genres inside his house.

In 2008, at the age of 16, the death of his friend caused Brooks to change his behaviors and become more mature and responsible, thus, he decided to pursue music as a career. Artists such as Wretch 32 and Giggs also inspired Yungen to pursue a music career as he could relate to and connect with these artists.
