“Nine Lives” contains an urban street narrative, menacing raps, and sharp hi-hat-laden instrumentation flavored with looming synths. The song marks Lil 50’s first official release of 2024 following a string of viral moments last year including performances with TRSH, On The Radar, Daily Gems, and his infamous interview with No Jumper. Standout tracks “Green Hearts,” “Young & Ruthless,” and “FREDDIE N JASON” have captivated his growing fanbase, earning him more than 20 million YouTube views. The momentum will continue as Lil 50 preps for new music coming soon.

Lil 50 is a force of nature. At 15 years old, the impressive young storyteller, who has endured unspeakable hardships and loss, is lightyears beyond his age. The rising Midwest artist expressed an interest in making music when he was 9 years old although he didn’t have access to the proper tools to record.

Lil 50 displayed his passion and creative ingenuity for the art form by using a cell phone to record and playback his rhymes, quickly developing a reputation for finding a way or make one. By the time he turned 13, his lyrical skills required a professional studio.

Representing the east side of the city, Lil 50 generated a local buzz by crafting hard-hitting anthems street hustlers could relate to. His reality-stye rap worked to his benefit due to the truth and transparency in his content. It gave insight into his childhood.

Growing up in a neighborhood infested with drugs, violence, and gang activity, Lil 50 was becoming a product of his environment until he decided to rap his way out of the trenches. The talented spitter was raised alongside six brothers by a single mom who was supportive of her son’s artistic ambitions. In high school, he would go bar for bar with friends during lunch, where he would showcase his ability to craft words with effortless bravado and authenticity.
