Young Bleed Signs With Tech N9ne’s Strange Music Label

This isn’t breaking news as it was announced in May, but I haven’t seen many sites touching on the subject. Baton Rouge emcee Young Bleed, who scored a major hit in “How Ya Do Dat” in the late 90’s during his brief time at No Limit, has joined Tech N9ne’s growing roster at Strange Music. Bleed has signed with a new subsidiary of the label called Strange Lane, confirmed by both Tech N9ne & Big Scoob.

Young Bleed released two southern classics during his time at Priority Records and was apart of the Baton Rouge supergroup/collective Concentraton Camp along with Max Minelli, C-Loc & J-Von. Known for his laided back style, Bleed’s last solo album was released back in 2007 and he’s been rarely heard from since then. He dropped a collaboration with Frieze in 2009 and has done a few guest appearances, but has been out of the spotlight for the most part.

Now as a member of the Strange Music roster, Bleed may have a chance to capture a new fanbase similar to Fiend’s newfound recognition with Curren$y’s JETS movement. Tech N9ne’s label used to be home to just his close affiiates, but the past few years have seen him signing a lot of outside acts including Brotha Lynch Hung, ¡Mayday! & Jay Rock. If you’re unfamiliar with Young Bleed’s work, hit the jump to check out a few songs from the talented artist.
