Biography

Atlanta, Georgia (2011 – present)

Kenneth Edward Bailey (born March 28, 1986 in Walterboro, South Carolina), commonly known by his stage name Young Scooter, is an independent Atlanta rapper who is affiliated not only with Future’s Freebandz imprint but Gucci Mane’s 1017 Brick Squad label as well. At the age of 9 he was forced to adjust to the fast life of the inner city when his family moved to the notorious Kirkwood Community (a.k.a. “Lil Mexico”) of Atlanta, Georgia.

In 2008, after he was charged with drug trafficking, Scooter decided to start pursuing a career in music. Joining forces with childhood friend, Future, Black Migo Gang/Freebandz created music that has generated a lot of attention.

While his first mixtape Plug Talkin didn’t receive much attention, with the 2011 release of his second mixtape Finessin and Flexin he made a name for himself, already collaborating with major artists Future, Rocko and Waka Flocka Flame. Scooter put out 2 more mixtapes in 2012 – Married to the Streets and Voice of the Streetz, featuring guest verses by Gucci Mane and Alley Boy.

The Atlanta rapper’s real breakthrough came in January 2013 when he released his mixtape Street Lottery. Spin magazine named it “Rap release of the week” and XXL featured it on its “Best mixtapes of January” list. The tape was also a viral success gaining over 100,000 downloads on DatPiff and a score of over 5,000 on Livemixtapes.
