Tyshawn Johnson aka Yvng Swag is an 18-year old dancer and recording artist from Maryland. Yvng Swag first took his dancing to social media platforms in 2014 and has since developed a large, engaged fan base across Instagram, YouTube, Twitter, and the now-defunct Vine. His viral video dancing to “Big Green Tractor” caught the attention of outlets like MTV, WorldStar HipHop, All Def Digital, and Nick Cannon’s ‘Ncredible Entertainment, who brought him on as a management client in 2016. That same year, Atlantic Records signed Johnson to a recording deal and released his debut single “Fall In Luv.” 2017 saw the release of his second single “Hit My Phone,” along with the #HitMyPhoneChallenge, which saw participation from other influential social media dancers like Backpack Kid and Roy Purdy. Yvng Swag’s debut EP ’32 Teeth’ will be released November 17, 2017.
Popularly known as Goonew, Goon Rich, Hoodrich Goon, Goonwick or Big64...but to make things simple, just call him Goonew. The 6'5, vicious, metaphorically advanced songwriter was born and raised in the notorious neighborhood of Forest Creek, MD, known for its rough upbringings, poverty, and violence. Out of the mud, Goonew has been able to become a force to be reckoned with throughout the music community, reaching millions before his first year in Hip Hop was complete. A lot of listeners anticipate this offbeat, dark, storyteller to become one of the greatest out of the "new wave" of a rap...only way to see how far this journey goes is to watch and see.
