Babylung is an artist who was born into a family of musicians and was raised in the church himself. His music is specifically catered towards capturing the authentic struggles of love and life as a millennial. Babylung curiously experimented with a multitude of different instruments and sang in choirs. However, it wasn’t until he got his first hand in urban music where he found his niche! Upon listening to Kendrick Lamar, Babylung became inspired to freestyle rap. That was the moment the young 12-year-old found his true passion and calling for music. He would then grow up battling at school, performing at parties, reciting spoken word poetry, and winning talent shows.
