Yung Juko’s story practically writes itself. His now manager was hounded to listen to “Trust Nobody” for 6 months before he relented. He was instantly hooked. This 21 year old singer/songwriter from Lafaytette, LA can sing. He decided to back him. Trouble was, they were met not only with a great deal of resistance in the beginning, but absolute ridicule. You see, Juko was diagnosed was Spina Bifida as an infant; a spinal deformity that causes a curvature of the spine and affects both one’s height and gait. People asked Brandon, “Why are you wasting all this money on a little cripple kid? He ain’t about to do nothing.” Well, the video for “Trust Nobody” just went over 800,000 views on YouTube in just 3 short months with over 13K likes. It also hit #1 on Billboard’s Hip Hop / R&B chart and #2 on their Hot Singles Sales chart. The best part of it is, “Trust Nobody” is the first song Yung Juko ever recorded and he bought the beat from some random producer in Shreveport, who was selling beats online for $25. I couldn’t make this shit up.
Here is Juko’s second video, “Learn From The Streets.”
