“It’s the same old struggle tryin’ to get money so when you get money ain’t shit funny” words
that Marcus “Yung Double” Crooms lives by. What happens when the tribulations of life seem
to dictate and conquer your triumphs? There’s only so much that a person can take before
they’re overwhelmed with turmoil and long for the desire to have peace and tranquility. It is at
this crossroads where there are only two ways to go: one way leads to failure and one way to
success. However no matter which route you choose there will always be many lessons to
learn. For Marcus while on the road to failure he found a shortcut to those successes.
The streets can teach hard lessons and don’t favor anyone. Marcus quickly learned this and as a
result prison was like his second home. Being raised solely by his mother it was difficult for
him to decipher his rights from his wrongs – it left the feeling of emptiness that could only be
filled with fast money. This yearning quickly began the destruction of his integrity. After going
to prison three times he decided to become more constructive and turned to his love for music.
“My kids my family’s future my friends and my city motivate me to record music” he admits.
Since his declaration he hasn’t turned back since and this is where “Yung Double” was
You can get a clear depiction of Yung Double’s real-life “tales from the hood” through his
music. He’s seen and adapted to the events of the hood – not the much popularized façade given
in today’s music. His determination to not become a statistic gave him favor and he was able to
open for a few of today’s most prominent hip-hop artists: Jeezy Gucci Mane and OJ Tha Juice
Man to name a few. With having the short-term goal of obtaining a record deal at the pace he’s
going he’ll reach his long-term goal of having multi-platinum selling artists on his own
Life has a funny way of taking us through hell to lead us to something greater. Our troubles
faults and mishaps are stepping stones toward our pathway to success. Yung Double is
determined to have those successes. It’s not a matter of “if” he will be successful but “when”.
How much success will be have? Only time will tell…
