Riding this wave, Young Flame recorded his first song at a local studio on 183rd street. In 2004 he started Wreckhouse Entertainment. Starting off small, Young Flame built a computer from scratch, which became a staple in creating his music, and then went on to construct a private studio in his home.
Young Flame later began hosting and promoting parties after a house party had a huge turn-out and exceeded his expectations. He had his hand in everything and was still recording music, charging $15 an hour for a session. This was the beginning of WreckHouse ENT.
In 2006, Wreckhouse was receiving recognition and fame after recording and performing their hit “Shorty Think She Wifey” at a Truman High School talent show, and became the buzz of high schools all over the Bronx. Later that year, Wreckhouse released their first mix-tape, which sold out its first week. Success continued to follow YoungFlame when his self-written and self- produced single “Boogie Down” became a viral hit, receiving over 30,000 plays on Myspace.
In 2007 Young Flame won first place in the SRC/ UNIVERSAL “FACES IN THE CROWD” competition, despite being the youngest performer and first to go on out the 17 acts scheduled to perform. It was then Young Flame and Wreckhouse solidified their spot in the local music scene, becoming household names in the Bronx.
Young Flame decided to take his show on the road and began performing at night clubs. Over the next two years he had performed at clubs including Ashford and Simpson’s Sugar Bar, Blue Villa, Amazura, and Dazzles in Mount Vernon, New York. Young Flame also performed at Ballers Night Club With Jabba of Massive B, Hot 97.1 radio station and Cypha Sounds of Big Dog Pitbulls, also of HOT 97.1 radio station.
It wasn’t until 2008 that he decided to release his first solo mixtape “On My Way Home”. And in 2009 Young Flame upped the ante and recorded two music videos for his smash singles “Escape to Happiness” and “Slow Down”.
In his short career Young Flame has reached great heights like opening for distinguished artists such as Beenie Man and Bounty Killer, as well as performing alongside Macka Diamond. The internet has added extra momentum to his career via sites like HoodGrownonline.com, Realtalkny.net, Shadyvillecarribbean.com, Mashthemedia.com, Theepicnetwork.com, Youngsuccessfullsociety.com, Bluntminds.wordpress.com, Rothestien.com, Billionofcurrency.tv, Dundemworld.com, Dancehallreggea.com, Niketalk.com, and Elleelleeye.blogspot.com. Particularly, his appearance on worldstarhiphop.com which received over 51,000 views and 600 comments, it is clear people are paying attention to Young Flame. All this in addition to his radio interviews/ appearences with Spate Radio, Royal Radio, Real Deal Fm, Hatemoney Radio, Five Towns College and Video City.
Young Flame’s music can be described as very energetic; upbeat to mid-tempo, even slow jams, Young Flame does it all. He has a unique voice and a flow that has is unheard of as well as a lot of charisma. Young Flame is an all out entertainer. The man himself can be summed up as humble, yet aggressive and stubborn, determined, and innovative.
