Rochester, NY emcee Young Sleep is far from a sleeper and delivers a harrowing and gripping track titled “Different.” Backed by a laid-back but cinematic backdrop by Slide Beatz he details his own challenges and how he approaches the rap game with a laser-focused mindset. The visuals show the rapper in the boxing gym getting ready to take on the world by sharpening his pen game and physical condition.
