I can’t remember the first time I heard the name A Billion Young. It may have been have been from one of the new Saints we hired at the shop since he manages them, or it could have come before that. Since I have heard that name and have gotten to know Kun and Nate a little more, I’ve been more and more intrigued by their musical development and what they plan on releasing to the world. Below you can watch the video for “Swisha Sweet,” which is the first video and song the duo worked on together. I was recently asked to work on a few press photos and material for their upcoming project Glenwood which has a different sound than their previous project Random Work. I spent some time roaming around some of the more green parts of Chicago and took the time to do a small Q&A with the duo.
