As a young artist Yung Kuest has a significant swagger that appeals to all walks of life.
Soon he realized he could put his thoughts on paper it could be another passion for him. He began to enter talent shows in New York City and his response from the people was positive, therefore realizing his second gift, he had enough motivation to pursue his music career.
Once Yung Kuest arrived in New York City having full confidence in his artistry he began to take matters into his own hands, “YOUNGEST BOSS IN CHARGE” with the decision of creating his own project which would introduce Yung Kuest to the world.

For Nate Walker, growing up in a beachside holiday town in Queensland, Australia hip hop was not very popular, Nate’s musical choices were heavily influenced by Rock which when coupled with his unique passion for Hip Hop and its culture were the driving force behind his signature sound.
Having a few friends who listened to Hip Hop, Nate would one day wake up listening to the sounds of Notorious B.I.G which was left playing on a stereo. The very next day he purchased his first Hip Hop album. From then on Hip Hop had become a major part of Nate’s life. Nate decided that he would try his hand at making beats and started making beats for local Perth artists for fun, but as a result he was getting nothing but positive feedback from the people.
During his return trip to the USA, Nate stopped in California for an Interscope Records party which was attended by some of the biggest Hip Hop producers, DJ’s and A&Rs’ in the industry. After making many industry connections and new friendships at the party, Nate caught the interest of Brooklyn based label Solid Ground Muzic. Building a solid relationship with its Founder, Nate began crafting beats for Solid Ground’s own YUNG KUEST and landed on projects with artists such as Red Cafe, Q AKA “Q DA KID”, Lil Mama, and MANY more just to name a few.
Nate is now signed as the in house producer for Solid Ground Muzic.
