In December 2010, Yung Nut made history at the Queen City Awards, being the first to perform and open the award show with a live band. Mingleberry.com said of one of his peformances, “Yung Nut, of East Charlotte, held the crowd’s attention with his Lil’ Boosie channeled vocals and ADHD induced stage performance. He paced and jumped across the stage, while forcing every lyric out of his gut with great intensity. His face winced with aggression every time he stated the line, “I be on the eastside, straight beast mode.” As soon as Young Nut exited the stage Big Pat acknowledged the change in energy level of the crowd.”
“You don’t know my struggle, you don’t know my grind, ” from Yung Nut mixtape “Crown Town King, “My life speaks through my music, says Yung Nut who still to this day his father, Jose has been incarcerated since age six, all his life his mother Carletta has been in and out of the streets, and in 2006 the man that he gives a lot of credit to for raising him to be the man he has grown to be, Reverend Chester B. Johnston, his grandfather, passed away, six months after his girlfriend at the time, Limiya, who shared Yung Nut’s same birthday died to a gunshot to the head.
After the death of his grandfather, one of Yung Nut’s older brother’s Mike became the father figure that he looked up to. Mike saw the potential in Yung Nut as an artist but did not want him to fall in the same path that he did when it came to school. Although at times it seemed a struggle, and even though he almost fell short, Yung Nut did graduate at the age of 19 in 2010, making him the first out of four brothers to walk across the stage.
With the vision that Mike had he began to manage Yung Nut under MJJ Management. In 2010, Mike brought together a strong team to help put the vision that he has for his little brother a reality. In 2011, MJJ Management turned into Independent Music label MJJ Music Group.
