The American rapper Yung Berg was born Christian Ward in Miami, Florida in 1985. His background is very different from many of his contemporaries in that he attended military boarding school in Montana before completing his studies and moving to Los Angeles at the age of 18. He worked for a time as a junior assistant at the record label Disturbing tha Peace until launching his solo career in 2007 with his debut single 'Sexy Lady'. The track featured the R&B singer Junior and peaked at number 18 in the Billboard Hot 100. Later that year he released the album 'Look What You Made Me' which reached number two in the Top Rap Albums Chart after peaking at number 20 in Billboard's mainstream chart.
