WHAT IT IS: In 2016, at 19 years old, the hip-hop artist and his whimsical brand of “boat music” (along with his signature beaded red braids) took the Internet and music scene by storm. His mind-blowing “1 Night” video went viral; it’s earned 89m views to date. His first headlining tour sold out in minutes. He modeled for Kanye West during his Yeezy Season 3 event at MSG, became the face of the Puma x Pink Dolphin line, shut down Times Square and starred alongside NBA champion and All-Star Lebron James in a Sprite ad. His first mixtape, Lil Boat, has amassed north of 335m streams, and “1 Night” is now platinum. With a full-length album on the way, fans can expect big things from this rising star.
