About King Lil G:
Born and raised in Inglewood, CA by a single Mexican mother, King Lil G had a troubled youth where he joined a gang, dropped out of school, fathered a child while he was still a minor, and became incarcerated. But beyond his rough exterior, King Lil G is a true artist with an honest message of Hope.
“I wanted to rap about the struggle – real street stuff that I was going through,” says King Lil G. He created the Sucios Movement, which he explains as “a positive movement that has to do with freedom and not being afraid to accomplish and do things… its empowerment for those that don’t think they can make it and come from nothing.”
His gangster hip-hop sound is influenced by the G-funk flavor of 90s West Coast legends Tupac, Snoop Dogg, Too $hort and Dr. Dre as well as Mexican folk ballads called corridos music.
Originally known as Lil Gangster, the rapper debuted his Mexican-centric G-funk influenced style on PR Records with mixtapes LA County’s Most Wanted and Hood Money. Later joining Double 9 Records, he then released Blue Devil, Pt. 2 featuring single “Letter To Dr. Dre” featuring Big Swiisha (4.2 million views) and King Enemy featuring singles “Narco Corridos” (4.5 million views) and “Who Shot 2Pac” (6.7 million views). In 2014, he signed onto MIH Entertainment and dropped his Lost In Smokemixtape with single “Welcome to LA” (6.7 million views) and his AK47 Boyz mixtape, which featured the single “Hopeless Boy” featuring David Ortiz (8.8 million views) and title track “AK47” (7.1 million views). His latest mixtape ’90s Kid featured LA’s Power 106 favorite “Grow Up” (6.5 million views).
