The Story Of Young Nuk 

Growing up in the twin cities of Minnesota and Minneapolis, Young Nuk’s music revolves around his decisions in a rough environment which eventually led him to serve some time in state prison. Despite this, he never lost his passion for music.

He pursued music and attended music college for business and recording technology for a short period of time. But Young Nuk would later drop out of school to pursue a full-time career in music and perform outside his region and network.

Now, Young Nuk has caught the eye of various names in the music industry. 

After NU Music Group’s (NMG) CEO Ca$adon took a liking to Young Nuk’s sound, how he was pushing his music relentlessly at shows, and his performance at every venue from local to mainstream celebrity acts, they reached an agreement for management. 

This resulted in a lot of touring and a lot more work which later led to Young Nuk’s current success of signing with Clover G Records and Powerhouse, as well as the recent release of an inked distribution deal through Empire/GT Digital.
