 With critical acclaim from Complex, Vice, and High Snobiety who christened him, “the latest and greatest rising rap name coming from Atlanta,” rapper Lil Gnar is one of today’s most ambitious new artists.

“I’m really just trying to build my own world,” he exclaims. “There’s a whole wave. It’s everything from fashion to music. I was in the street, but I was also in the skatepark, so everything I do speaks to both sides of who I am.”

Raised by his mom and grandma in East Atlanta, Lil Gnar developed an intense work ethic that came from seeing everyone around [him] stress about money.” He took his profits “from hustling” and put it into the launch of his very own fashion label, GNARCOTIC, which dropped in 2014 and sold out almost instantly.

Inspired by Lil Wayne, Future, Travis Scott, Tyler, The Creator, and Pharrell, Lil Gnar began songwriting in 2015 and dropped his first track “Rihanna Thick” two years later. Originally debuted on WorldStarHipHop in November 2017, Lil Gnar’s single “Ride Wit Da Fye” ft. Germ became his breakthrough song, hitting 1.3 million views. As labels began to take interest, he inked a deal with 10K Projects in 2018.

His 2018 mixtape GNAR Lif3 fueled his rise, featuring a collaboration with Blink 182’s Travis Barker and the single “Drop Top Benz” with Lil Skies, which has gained over 23 million streams on Spotify.

This is a community that depends heavily on public transportation, encompasses countless essential workers, and is over criminalized into a legal system that crams people into jail cells where the virus is rampant. We are working tirelessly on behalf of our clients to stem the worst of this pandemic, but we can’t do it alone. We’re so thankful to have allies like Lil Tjay giving back to their community so that our clients can access basic necessities like protective masks, groceries, and medicine in this time of crisis. We will get through this if we continue having each other’s backs.”  – Justine Olderman, Executive Director of Bronx Defenders.
