Being a celebrity is not nearly as easy as we might think. Sometimes they are exposed to so much pressure, that they can’t cope with it.
Either way, they still have the privilege to see the world from a whole different perspective and are able to spend enormous amounts of money the way they want to. Every celebrity life story is different, and most of them start from nothing and manage to achieve so much.
In today’s text we are going to talk about Young Scooter, an American rapper and songwriter. We will talk about his life, his career and his rise to the top.
So, if you enjoy his music and would like to know more about him, here is your chance.
Kenneth Edward Bailey was born on March 28th 1986 in South Carolina, US. His family lived in South Carolina until he was nine years old, and later moved to Atlanta or the Kirkwood community.
Growing up in rough neighborhoods left a mark on this talented rapper and made him take the dark side of life for a while, as a form of lifestyle. H got involved with the problematic kids and started messing with drugs when he was younger.
He spent his teenage years on the streets, dealing drugs and involving himself in other problematic things. He was a friend in childhood with another famous rapper, Future. Both of them grew up in the streets of Georgia and learned that life is not a happy place like many think.
In 2008, he faced a major obstacle in his life. He was arrested for drug trafficking, and this was the turning point in his life.
He then decided it is time to move away from the underworld and focus on the brighter side of life. He wanted to try pursuing a career in rap music, so he began practicing and pulling out his old notes, from back in the day when he was writing lyrics.
This gave him an opportunity to move away from the underworld and the drug world, so he continued working on himself until he was able to release his first mixtape.
Young scooter’s first mixtape was called Plug Talking and was released in 2010. The mixtape wasn’t very noticed in the rap community but this didn’t stop him from trying. He released Finessin and Flexin and the mixtape ended up being a total success.
He featured with Rocko, Future and Waka Flocka Flame on several songs, which gave him an opportunity to be in the spotlight even more and to gain fans from these already established artists.
In 2012, he came out with another mixtape called Married to the Streets and Voice of the Streetz, where he collaborated with Nard and B, zaytoven and Da Honorable. He also featured songs with Alley Boy and Gucci Mane.
In 2013, Scooter decided to release another mixtape under the name Street Lottery. The mixtape became the Rap release of the week and was noticed by everyone in the rap scene. The XXL played it on the Best mixtape’s of January and Eric from the XXL called the song one of the best songs coming from Atlanta.
The songs Colombia and Street Lottery were the best songs on the album, according to the opinions of the audience and the critics. The song was downloaded over 10000 times from the DatPiff and the video for the song Colombia came out by the end of January the same year.
The song was a major hit in his hometown Atlanta as well, and the remixes of the song were also huge hits In 2013 he released a mixtape called Free Bricks 2 together with Gucci Mane. The mixtape From the Cell Block to You Block also featured Lil Boosie, Gucci Mane, Future and many more. The mixtape was a success as well and he gained many new followers and fans.
One thing that Young Scooter is famous for is his rapping style. He is a freestyle rapper, which means he never writes down his lyrics and he raps them out without any script”. This gives his music a unique style, and many respect him for this fact because rapping in such a manner is extremely hard.
Not many rappers can do this, which is why he is one of the rarest. Another rapper with similar style is Gucci Mane. Scooter says that he doesn’t overthink his lyrics, which is the secret of his music. He believes that overthinking ruins the song and the quality of lyrics, which is why he never overthinks them.
The subject Scooter raps about are mostly money and drugs. These two subjects are his favorite subjects to talk about, and we can hear in his songs that he really enjoys talking about them. His biggest influences growing up were 50 Cent and Jay Z.
Scooter’s net worth is estimated at around 2$ million. This number is just an assumption, but we believe that it is close to the exact number. Scooter has been on the rap scene for only couple of years, which is the reason his net worth is much lower than the other rappers. He is still on the rise and he is still creating music that is going to be released in the following period.
We can expect a lot more from him, which is why the net worth is probably going to go up and he is going to be much richer than he is right now. That of course, if he continues to make great music and keeps himself on the right track. So far he has been able to do that, and hopefully he will continue to do that in the future as well.
Most of his money comes from his music and his performances. He is also a songwriter, even though he doesn’t write his own songs. He does this for other performers, which is another interesting fact about him.
Young Scooter has a very interesting background, and we can say that he has come a long way compared to few years back. He was arrested in 208 because of drug trafficking, and this point in his life was also a turning point in his life. He realized that it is time to turn another leaf and start taking life seriously.
He always wanted to try rapping, because he was very talented so he decided to pursue a rap career after the incident in 2008. He was a longtime friend with rapper Future, who helped him a lot when he was just starting out. Even though his first mixtape wasn’t a success, he was able to release several successful mixtapes after that.
Scooter spent six months in prison for his violation, and everyone knows he is a good friend with Gucci Mane who also had his fair share of problems with the police. In 2015, Scooter was left off probation and was completely free.
He is currently performing at concerts all around the US, and he seems to be on the good path to recovery. He said in many interviews that he is not ashamed of his old life and that he admitted all his wrong doing in the past. Scooter’s intention is to pursue a rap career and to become even more famous than he is now.
He hasn’t announced any new projects yet, but we assume that he will be releasing new music soon. He has been working hard on new projects, which might be the reason he was away from the public eye. Considering the fact that he was in the spot light for such a short period of time, he managed to achieve great success and accomplish a lot.
His biggest songs so far were the Colombia and Street Lottery. The two songs are definitely going to be remembered as his greatest work so far. Scooter is also famous for his freestyle rapping. He never writes down his lyrics, and he only goes with the flow. He says that this is the best way to create unique and quality music. The more we think about something, the worse it gets so it is better to not overthink it.
As far as we know, he is currently single and has no children, but he doesn’t like talking about this part of his personal life. He has been linked to many famous women over the years, but none of the rumors came out to be true.
Scooter is very active on all of his social media platforms, aware he shares information with his fans about new performances and new projects he is preparing for them.
He also shares his opinion on Twitter and likes connecting with his fans. He hasn’t announced any new songs or mixtapes so far, but we can expect something new very soon. Until he comes up with something new, we will enjoy his old music and songs.
