Young Scholar – Surrey Muse

sm-youngscholar

Young Scholar is a RAP (Rhythm And Poetry) lyricist and a music producer whose debut album, ‘The Awakening’ encapsulates his two-pronged mandate that he calls his ‘mission’: ‘to get my audience to critically analyze different issues in society (hatred/jealousy, immigration/refugee crisis, credential racism, violence against women) through my lyrics, and to promote RAP in its most sophisticated and beautiful form because RAP must have meaning to connect to a large audience.’ The album will be available soon.

Young Scholar started rapping in 2013 when he was 20, to help his peers remember organic chemistry reactions, but soon he was using a set of very different themes. He continued to RAP because it allowed him ‘to easily express myself via poetry’.

Tupac Shakur is one of his favorite musicians in addition to Fort Minor’s Mike Shinoda.
