Lil Mosey is making big moves.
At only 17-years-old, Lil Mosey has proven that talent and drive can push you to reach your dreams regardless of how old you are.
The Seattle rapper dropped out of high school to pursue a music career after his track, “Pull Up”, garnered millions of plays.
While considered a risky move to many, the decision to leave a formal education behind has resulted in a career that is constantly growing. He’s toured with Juice WRLD and YBN Cordae, charted on Billboard Hot 100, and scored a record deal, reaching #20 on the Canadian album charts with his major label debut.
And he’s done it all while carving his own lane.
“My sound is more like the new era, melodic rapping,” says Lil Mosey to Billboard.” It’s hard to explain. You can maybe compare it to some others, like how it sounds, but not how good it is. It doesn’t sound like anybody.”
Getting used to the spotlight.
Lil Mosey’s fast introduction to fame didn’t allow for a training period: fans have passed out after meeting him, sold-out crowds sing his lyrics back to him, and he can’t go out in public without being recognized.
After “Pull Up”, the MC followed it up with “Noticed”, his first track to hit the Billboard charts, peaking at #80 and becoming certified Gold for 500,000 combined sales.
Both tracks live on Northsbest, Lil Mosey’s debut album, released in October 2018. The 11-song project puts the rapper front-and-centre, with only one feature from BlocBoy JB on “Yoppa”.
Starting the new year off with a bang.
If 2018 was a big year for the teenage star, 2019 is poised to be even more gigantic. He’s coming out swinging with his latest hit, “Bust Down Cartier”, already racking up millions of plays.
As his career continues to explode, we can’t wait to see what other tricks Lil Mosey has up his sleeves.
