About

."I don't believe a lot of people when they rap, I believe Block.", boasts Josh Metzger (aka Homework) Block's in house producer. David Williamson, who goes by the stage name Young Block or simply Block, is beginning to generate quite the buzz on the Memphis music scene with his catchy flows, witty charm, and gritty delivery. Block, who's been rapping since the age of 13 after being inspired by his mother’s love of poetry, had a rough upbringing in Memphis' own Hyde Park. Growing up in Hyde Park Block was introduced to the gang lifestyle, fast women, and of course his passion for music.

Blocks debut mix tape Grinda Affiliates Volume 1 was released to positive reviews despite the lack of industry promotion. While still riding off of the wave of his debut mix tape Block is currently recording fresh tracks for Grinda Affiliates Volumes 2 and 3 while also building a name for himself online through his regularly updated YouTube and Twitter account (@GrindaAffiliates). Hoping to broaden his southern audience Block has begun reaching out to neighboring states like Georgia, Arkansas and Mississippi just to name a few in hopes of rocking there local venues. With a bad habit for good lyrics and a bass line that will rock any speaker Block is sure to be a breath of fresh air for promoters seeking fresh and raw talent.

Block lists some of his immediate influences as the likes of Tupac, Common, and fellow rising Memphis hip-hop artist, Don Trip.
