About Lil Mosey
Lil Mosey is the stage name of Lathan Moses Stanley Echols. He’s an American (occasional) actor, internet personality, rapper, singer, and songwriter that rose to fame in 2017 after the release of his single “Pull Up”. The following year, he released his debut studio album “Northsbest”, which included his first Billboard Hot 100 chart-topping hit “Noticed”. Since then, the “Blueberry Faygo” singer has released another commercially-successful studio album and a number of global hits.
How did Lil Mosey earn his net worth?
Consistently releasing new music as well as signing with the record label Interscope helped the young rapper become rich in just two years time. His breakthrough came in 2017 with the single “Pull Up”, which was a commercial success. After selling more than 500,000 copies, the song was certified gold by the RIAA and became his first to achieve this accolade. The song impressed the officials of Interscope Records and they offered him a recording deal worth $250.000.
In July 2018, Mosey released his first number-one single “Noticed”, which served as the lead single of the artist’s debut album. A few months later, in October, he released his first album titled “Northsbest”. The album was met with positive reviews and peaked in numerous countries around the world such as Canada, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, and the United Kingdom. In early 2019, after selling 500,000 copies, the album was certified gold. Overall, from his debut studio project, the young rapper was able to earn more than $150.000.
Why is he so famous?
Lil Mosey became famous after his sleeper hit “Pull Up” went viral on social media. Lathan was born on January 25, 2002, in Mountlake, Terrace, Washington. He was raised mostly by his mother in Seattle but also remained a close connection with his half-Puerto Rican father. In his early teens, after listening to Meek Mill’s hit single “Dreams and Nightmares”, he developed an interest in rapping. He first attended the Mountlake Terrace High School and then, in tenth grade, he transferred to the Shorecrest High School.
In 2016, Lathan developed the stage name, Lil Mosey. He dropped out of high school just before his graduation and moved to Los Angeles with the aspirations to become a rapper. That year, he uploaded his very first song titled “So Bad”. The song was uploaded on his SoundCloud account and it quickly received nearly 50,000 views. In November, he competed in the “Coast to Coast Live Seattle” competition where he placed fourth.
What makes him so successful?
The success of hip hop and trap artist comes from both his solo projects and collaborations with other rising stars. Since his signing with Interscope, he was able to secure collaborations with many established names such as Gunna, Chris Brown, and Russian. As a solo artist, he continuously released singles, with the most triumphant being “Blueberry Faygo”. The song entered charts in more than twenty countries and became his first to receive gold and platinum certifications in six different countries – Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Portugal, United Kingdom, and the United States.
Most recently, in November 2019, Mosey released his sophomore studio album named “Certified Hitmaker”. Despite failing to earn certifications by the RIAA or other trade organizations, the album still flourished on the international charts. Presently, the rapper continues to upload new music on his YouTube channel, which was created back in March 2014, when he was just twelve years old. As of now, the rapper’s channel has 1.8 million subscribers and, his 55 videos have accumulated a total of 387 million views.
