Born in Mexico and raised in Los Angeles, California, King Lil G is ready to be heard, and make an impact with his music. The rapper started making music at the age of 12 and describes his sound as 'unique.' He also points out that his mother’s struggles as well as his family and fans are what keep him motivated. “A lot of my music talked about my past,” he says. “Now, I’m rapping about my present.”
With more than half a billion YouTube views and more than 1 million subscribers, King Lil G is well on his way to becoming a household name in the hip-hop world. Although his passion is music, the rising rapper also writes, produces and directs. In the past, he’s collaborated with artists such as Nipsey Hussle, Tory Lanez, Too Short and producer Hit-Boy. The music video for his 2014 single “Hopeless Boy”, which is about poverty, drugs and violence, has garnered over 69 million views.
Aside from having 11 Billboard plaques, King Lil G also has a few albums and mixtapes under his belt, including Blue Devil, King Enemy, and AK47 Boyz. Some say these projects make King Lil G stand out from others mainly because of his signature style of combining trap beats with old-school hip hop lyrics. As for what’s coming up for the independent artist, “singles now, album soon,” he says.
