      Lil Mosey

      with Polo G, C Glizzy, Bandkids, PARKE, Tenacious Turner
      There is no denying that when rappers from the Seattle rap scene break through,they dominate. Sir Mix-A-Lot became one of hip-hops best-selling acts of the 1980sand 90s. The Emerald City got its next major triumph more than twenty years later,with the multi-platinum, hit-making duo Macklemore and Ryan Lewis. Now its 16-year-old Lil Moseys turn.Born and raised in the Seattle suburb of Mount Lake Terrace, Lil Mosey was a mere9-years-old when he was introduced to hip-hop. His oldest brother, Quinnell, playedhim music from Joey Bada$$, Iamsu!, Souljah Boy, and Mosey became an avid, rapfan, gravitating to the likes of 50 Cent, Nas and Meek Mill.By the time the baby-faced wordsmith got to the 8th grade, he was actively scouringYouTube to find instrumentals to write to and rap over. It was a way to perfect hisbudding flow. Lil Mosey recorded his first song, Duplicate, over DesiignersPanda beat in his bedroom and dropped it on SoundCloud. It got a couplethousand listens, an encouraging sign for an unknown artist. Over the next year,Mosey continued developing his craft and releasing material.Then he discovered the beat that changed his life. While browsing the internet, LilMosey found a track from Black Mayo and passed it on to his producer, Royce David.Once I got to the studio and started freestyling, I had the song done in 15 minutes,Lil Mosey recalls of making the smash single Pull Up, which showcases hiseffortless lyrical style. I knew it was fire, so I raised the capital to get a video done.The move proved prescient. Released in December 2017, the accompanyingpsychedelic clip gave fans the first real glimpse of Lil Mosey and instantly became aninternet sensation, racking up 50,000 views in its first week. In a month, it was up to300,000. Today, the Pull Up video has more than 18+ million views.Buoyed by the success of Pull Up and subsequent single Boof Pack (more thannine million YouTube views), Lil Mosey moved to Los Angeles in January 2018. InJuly, he unleashed the video for the single Noticed, a remake of one of his earlysongs. The Cole Bennett-directed clip reached 39+ million views on LyricalLemonade. Lil Mosey shows no signs of slowing down with release of his latestproject Northsbest.As he prepares for the next steps in his career, Lil Mosey knows that he has millionsof underage fans paying attention to his lyrics. Im 16 so Im talking about thethings Im seeing and experiencing now, he explains. I didnt set out to be a rolemodel, but I know there are a lot of young people who look up to me and I acceptthat as a responsibility.
