Seattle, a major city in Washington, holds the record as a fertile ground that has given birth to scores of hip-hop artists who are playing influential roles towards the redefinition of modern hip-hop. 2018 was really a big year for many artists in the city but none of them had it big like Lil Mosey, a Seattle-born teen who became an instant icon within and beyond the music community after his commercial single Noticed exploded online. Prior to his career breakthrough, the young star was not really known by many people even in Seattle, his hometown, but today, Mosey has grown to become an integral part of the hip-hop community, someone with a unique flow, sound, and musical skills.
Lil Mosey’s Bio (Age), Ethnicity
In recent times, we have seen a whole lot of new talents toiling to make it to the top in the music industry. While many of them prefer to forge a path for themselves using their own names, others appear to be very comfortable with the prefix “Lil”, which usually appears before an artist’s real/stage name (s). Though Mosey was born Lathan Moses Echols, he is best known by his stage name Lil Mosey. The young rapper was born on American soil, precisely, Seattle, Washington, in the U.S. on the 25th of January 2002.
Although Lil Mosey was born and raised in Seattle, he is a native of Mountlake Terrace, in Washington, in the United States. He holds American citizenship by reason of his birth in the U.S and belongs to white ethnicity.
The young MC attended Mountlake Terrace High School but he dropped out later to start up music full-time. Information about his family, background, siblings, and childhood experience is not available online at the time of writing this report.
As regards his growing career, Lil Mosey decided to forge a path for himself in the industry after his breakout hit Pull Up started gaining traction on SoundCloud, pulling in over ten million views on YouTube. Not long after Pull Up dropped, Mosey served the music industry with his second commercial single titled Boof Pack, which earned him more than 10 million views on YouTube after its release on March 14, 2018.
Riding on the success of his first two singles, Lathan went on to release his third single together with a music video. It was the favorable outcome of the hit song – Noticed, that finally skyrocketed him to prominence in the industry, on SoundCloud and other social media platforms. Noticed, which made its way to the music world on July 20, 2018, also spiraled its way to the 80th spot on the Billboard Hot 100, announcing Lil Mosey as one promising star to watch out for.
Ever since the young rapper found fame, he has worked with notable young artists such as Juice WRLD and YBN Cordae. He recently embarked on his third tour with the duo after successfully touring the states with Smooky Margielaa for the first time and later with SmokePurpp.
There is no doubt the Seattle-born hitmaker is all set to take over from many elite rappers in the hip-hop community If he doesn’t slow down and continues to work hard in the competitive industry. We are positive his great deal of effort will ultimately pay off someday in the nearest future. As of 2018, his net worth is estimated at $750,000.
Unlike their fast-rising rapper son, Lil Mosey’s parents are strangers to the spotlight. They are not popular and because of this reason, their identities are not known to the public. More so, Mosey hardly talks about his parents in front of the camera but we know, from an interview the starlet granted some time ago, that his mother was never in support of him dropping out from high school to pursue a career in music.
The young rapper once shared that his mother felt he is still young to start a career in the showbiz and that she wanted him to hold on for some time before delving into music. Apparently, Mosey’s mother couldn’t change her son’s mind and today, she is his biggest fan. As for his father, he has not opened up about the kind of person he is or the roles he’s been playing in his life and career. In essence, it appears the rapper has supportive parents who got his back as well.
Height – How Tall is He?
Lil Mosey, who is mostly recognized by his chest tattoo that reads “Thank God” stands at a height of 5 feet 6 inches. However, details about the Pull Up crooner’s body measurements are not open for public scrutiny. From his videos and pictures he shares online, it can be clearly seen that he has dark brown eyes and hair.
