Youngs Teflon’s freestyle at Tim & Barry TV

At the turn of the millennium, two young Tim and Barry, in London were tentatively forming a working relationship that’d change the face of underground British music culture forever. Out of their Ridley Road studio, they have created a multimedia empire. Since them, they have quietly embedded themselves deep within the music industry, gaining — and giving — access to some of the most original, exciting, explosive talent the country’s ever given birth to.

This time, for Tim & Barry‘s latest video we join the South Londoner Youngs Teflon for an afternoon stroll.

Teflon started writing his first bars in his early teens and quickly took those talents from playgrounds and alleys, to studio sessions recording with NAA. Since he first emerged in the scene several years ago, Youngs Teflon has dropped a catalogue of lively singles, highlighting his successFire Water”. Youngs Teflon has been not just ‘doing this’ for more than ten years now, but helping to put trap-rap on the map, remaining consistent when a lot of rappers jumped off music or didn’t release as much.

Youngs Teflon is undoubtedly one of the coldest spitters in the scene and this is something he proves on every track. As expected, the south London rapper comes through with some real and direct lyrics which match the gritty energy of the instrumental.

His Lyrics, have gained him one of the most loyal fan bases in UK rap, some who listens to a few recent popular songs and others who are been listening since day one. When it comes to fan bases, tangible stats like album sales or Twitter followers matter somewhat, but what’s also key is how much an artist’s viewers buy into who they’re following. That’s why Youngs Teflon’s high-quality raps don’t always translate into the numbers it deserves.

Teflon’s lyrics, delivery, and flow are far higher than the sales revenues and YouTube views. However he’s been puting out strong projects consistently for many years, but don’t always get the recognition he should. Within trap-rap/drill music, Tef is indeed recognised, but in terms of a wider, more generic rap audience, Tef’s lyrical skill far outweighs the recognition he gets. You could say Tef is one of those rappers who is a lot better than most people would think. Although, it seems Tef is well-respected amongst some of his industry peers in UK rap, as Giggs, Blade, 67 and Carns Hill, to name a few, recognise Tef as being a heavyweight lyricist, so at least there’s that.

Youngs Teflon is without a doubt, one of the best trap-rappers in the UK, at least for the last decade. He isn’t exclusively a trap-rapper, Tef is a well-rounded, superior lyricist, capable of putting out a diverse range of sick, cold music.
