"A few seconds into "Only One King" are all you'll need to understand why this track was picked up by the NFL. It's got a motivational tinge to it... there's a fire to Jung Youth."- Earmilk
"To me, this song is all about perseverance, hard work, determination, and the awareness that comes with understanding that we live and die by the same decisions we make." - Jung Youth

About Jung Youth: Straight out of Music City, Jung Youth (born Justin Donahue) represents an energetic sound rooted in collaboration and versatility. "Stay Chill," his biggest single to date, finds the freestyle-savvy MC focusing on melody, reflective writing, and growth. "I was a kid who was always questioning everything," says Donahue, admitting that his stage name is equally inspired by Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung and Raekwon's "C.R.E.A.M." bars. After being greatly affected by Nas' Stillmatic album, the young artist was drawn to Hip-Hop's lyrical introspection and raw competitive spirit. "I used my music as a way to look deeper into my own life."
This type of examination led Jung youth to hone his flow and develop a hard-hitting live show before being named a Red Bull Sound Select artist and rocking stages with legends like Mobb Deep, Ghostface Killah, Raekwon, Juicy J and Kool Keith as well as a new generation of performers like Travis Scott, Tory Lanez, The Kool Kids and Pell. With a grabbing voice, a writing stance that speaks to the experiences of many, and sharp flow, Jung Youth has the seasoned wisdom of a veteran, and the fresh eyes, sound, and captivating curiosity that has delivered him and his platform to this point - and even though his most recent EP is called Stay Chill, things are only continuing to heat up for this rising creative.
