Butta of The Week: Young Steff – Slow Jukin

I definitely co-sign this dude. Young Steff has been on the radar for a minute; Payin’ his dues and makin’ good music while on his search for stardom. I think he may finally have a Hit on his hands.

The Future

The Future

The Artist known as Young Steff hails from New Jersey, where he grew up in music, having his Father being in Gospel group and his Aunt being Gina Thompson, an artist I mentioned in the Gold Mind post.  Soon, he was appearing in local talent shows – eventually making it to a McDonald’s-sponsored  talent show at the Apollo. By 12 years of age, Steff was signed to Rocafella, where he enjoyed some attention with Can I Holla, a song he recorded with Lil Bow Wow for the Like Mike soundtrack. After Jay-Z and Dame Dash ended their partnership in Rocafella, Steff had to decide whether to continue beinI signed under Dame’s New Music Group, or to go at the industry alone as a Free Agent. Luckily Steff made the right decision.  After trying things on his own for a while, Steff hooked up with producer Rich Harrison (Beyonce’s Crazy in Love, Amerie’s 1 Thing) and later signed with Rich’s label, Richcraft under Atlantic Records.

This is Young Steff’s second single (the first was Maino-featured Professional, a really good track that appeared to get very little promotion), from his forth-coming debut album titled , Jump it Off! This song was produced by Chris ‘TEK’ O’Ryan and Durrell ‘Bishop’ Scott for NewFaze Entertainment. This song is a problem. It is sexy, well-written, well-produced and features some great vocals from Young Steff. And the video is even better. Fat Katz do the song justice by bringin’ in their ATL flava complete with sexy female dancers and a Lead chick that can move. Even the opening track makes us want to hear more from Young Steff! Here’s hoping this video blows up and Young Steff starts to get the recognitition he deserves.  Check it out!

Vodpod videos no longer available.

*Side Note: I was passed this video by a loyal reader. Little did I realize that this video was released back in February. Atlantic needs to get their promotion game back on track!
