Most of you know Young Astronomer by his music created in the hip-hop collective SWiFTcrew.
They began in early February 2013 with songs likeRollin’, ILYMJ, Party Gods, Munchies & their debut song “SWiFT living”.SWiFTcrew is as well known for their many live performances.
Most notably when they rocked a sold out show with Machine Gun Kelly at Algonquin Commons Theatre back in 2016.
Word on the street is that Young Astronomer is taking the next chapter to focus on his solo career. He releases his highly anticipated 3rd body of work “Against All Odds” later in the year.
