Youngs Teflon was never concerned with chasing the trends of rap. From his earliest music in 2008 to the present, he’s stayed true to his gritty, authentic style, serving street tales with the calm of a reporter. Born Jimmy Conway in 1987, Teflon grew up in Lambeth, South London, drawing from his hardships for his raps. His music centres a blunt, unadorned style best consumed in the long stretches of his full-length projects. Early 2010s tapes like Call of Duty and Call of Duty 2: Riot Season earned Teflon the respect of fellow UK rappers like Blade Brown who’d take cues from Chicago to create their own strand of drill music. Teflon staged a comeback in 2019, collaborating with stars like Dave and K-Trap but still rapping with the same uncompromising vision that put him on the map.
