Da Youngfellaz Release Smooth New Single "Holy Grail"

The duo's main repertoire is characterized by tight lyricism and forthright braggadocio, but "Holy Grail" is relatively tame.

On the silky smooth "Holy Grail," Jay Storm and Sho-Biz of Da Youngfellaz sound confident and collected.

While both artists are New York-bred, the duo's latest single is as lustrous as any West Coast track. It's clear that despite their loyalty to the Big Apple, Da Youngfellaz aren't afraid to expand outside of NYC's traditional soundscape. Perhaps their versatile sound is why — despite how inconspicuous they may be to mainstream audiences — they've worked with some of the country's most successful artists. The duo has collaborated with everyone from Talib Kweli and Snoop Dogg to Nipsey Hussle and eclectic funk singer George Clinton.

While Da Youngfellaz's main repertoire is characterized by tight lyricism and forthright braggadocio, "Holy Grail" is relatively tame, with Breana Marin's smooth vocals gently carrying the track, as Sho-Biz and Storm reminisce on the love they used to have before fame set in. As Da Youngfellaz expand their sound, their latest single solidifies them as artists to watch. Check out the track above, and be sure to watch their performance on Popdust Presents.

Watch Da YoungFellaz take over "The Town" in this hot new video

NYC's dynamic duo puts Gotham on notice

If you were to Google "Da YoungFellaz", you would find a resume that's impressive, to say the least. From collaborations with the likes of Talib Kweli and Snoop Dogg to their appearance on "Sway In The Morning", Jay Storm from The Bronx and Sho-Biz from Brooklyn have spent the last few years cultivating a name and a reputation that makes them not just one of the most sought-after acts in New York City, but in Hip-Hop period. They've successfully navigated their indie imprint New Rich Entertainment to new heights and only look to add on to their already stellar list of accolades in 2018.

YF's blend of sharp, witty rhymes and their ear for pristine production has helped Da YoungFellaz craft a unique sound that embodies their New York upbringing and their ability to stay ahead of the curve. Throughout the years, Storm and Biz continued to put out bodies of work while performing both home and abroad. Their high work rate and their consistency continues to be the key assets to their success. They have been recognized by the pioneers as being worthy to carry the torch for Hip-Hop by being original and authentic.

Their latest visual for the Bravestarr produced track "The Town" is a subtle offering from YF to start off the new year. Whether it's in a plush Lower Eastside apartment or riding through the streets with the top down, Storm and Biz let it be known that they're more than at home in the space they've created for themselves with LVTRToinne behind the lens capturing it all.

Though music has always been their primary focus, Da YoungFellaz have embarked on a new endeavor. Back in November, they created the party series 90s vs. Trap. An after-work industry mixer that features Hip-Hop and R&B from the 90s and music from the likes of artists such as 2 Chainz, Migos, etc. The event is hosted by YF themselves with music courtesy of Grammy Award winner and legendary Hip-Hop producer Rockwilder. 90 vs. Trap Part II will take place on January 18th at Katra in New York City. If you're in the NYC area and would like to attend you can RSVP here.

"The Town" is now available on all download and streaming services.
