LIL GNAR: RAPPER, FASHION DESIGNER, OR SKATER?

by | May 31, 2018 | Culture, Music

Who is Lil Gnar? Perhaps you’ve heard of him, but if you haven’t, he’s a rising rapper based out of Atlanta. He hasn’t had the big one drop just yet, but he accrued nearly half a million views within a few months of releasing his first few songs including the popular Ride Wit Da Fye, and has recently released a new project called Big Bad Gnar Shit. He isn’t just your typical rap artist however. Instead of heading over to a label, Lil Gnar is coming up using a completely different approach. He͛’s joined in with other rappers like Lil Uzi Vert, Lil Yachty, and many others by releasing his work through Soundcloud, an online music platform that allows artists to post songs for others to hear. His success on SoundCloud is only one of the things that͛s helped boost his blossoming music career. His latest release “Drop Top Benz” featuring Lil Skies has over 2.4 million plays in only 20 days.

 

 

Besides rapping, he͛s got two other huge passions that got him noticed well before any of his songs. These are fashion designing, and skateboarding. Remarkably, Lil Gnar was able to combine his love for both into one single skateboarding fashion business venture he calls GNARCOTICS. Essentially, the brand offers comfortable and stylish clothing tailored towards skateboarders, including the signature look of camo-blended pants, and was founded by Lil Gnar himself in 2013. The man is quite a hard worker. For 3 years he managed the brand entirely by himself, including customer service aspects such as e-mails, packing and shipping, etc. And in an interview with HighSnobSociety, he mentioned that this took up so much of his time, he didn͛t have the chance to grow his music side of things until forming a deal with a distributor in L.A. to assist in handling demand from his GNARCOTICS brand. Now that he has more time, he͛s on to promoting his music as well. So look out for this up and coming multi-talented man, as you͛re likely to see him gain some recognition for one or more of his passions.
