Hailing from Los Angeles, rising rapper and producer IamSoLitty is emerging onto the music scene. He’s worked alongside the likes of Soulja Boy and Master P, who featured the artist on 2005’s album Ghetto Bill Gates, years before changing his moniker. Litty is heavily influenced by his Carribbean roots, crediting his sound to many childhood upbringings.
“People can see what I’m saying, you can see the picture,” Litty states.
Pushing the agenda forward, Litty is readying to drop his forthcoming project, The So Litty Project. Ahead of its release, Litty will be dropping off a collaboration with Fatboy SSE, which he’s been teasing for the past week. “Everything that I do is going to be lit, it’s going to be inspiring,” SoLitty remarks about his upcoming body of work.
Malcolm Trapp of the Rapfest has the chance to chop it up with IAmSoLitty, take a look below.
