King Lil G, born in 1986 and raised in Inglewood, California, started listening to Hip Hop in the early '90s, to artists like Eazy-E, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg and RBL Posse. Inspired by their lyrics, beats and style, King Lil G became motivated to write lyrics of his own at the age of 12. He never thought of pursuing music as a career, but while growing up around his two older brothers, whom he saw as role models, King Lil G learned everything he needed to know about surviving in the streets. He later spent time in jail and was released under house arrest. With no one to talk to, King Lil G had nothing in his head but rhymes. It was at this time when he really dedicated himself to learn how to express himself. His method was very simple: be himself, never copy anybody else, and only rap about what's real. In the beginning, no one believed in him or wanted to help, but in 2002, an album was released with the songs that he wrote. Knowing he could do better and having gained buzz, in 2006 King Lil G released "Underground Chapter 1." Now, King Lil G records in major studios and working with producers associated with 2Pac and Bone Thugs-N-Harmony. With the release of "Blue Devil 2" and now "King Enemy," a monster has been unleashed and nothing can stop his momentum.
