Becoming a music artist can be quite challenging compared to any other profession. There is no blueprint for any budding talent that paves the way to enter the music industry. Fresh talent have to work their own way to fame, earning their fan base and getting noticed. Independent young Rapper Lil Dawg is a perfect example here. The 21-year-old artist has blown up online with his unique music style. At such a young age, Lil Dawg has already performed more than 400 live shows, including the famous Brooklyn Unity Fest for three consecutive years.
Lil Dawg started his journey into music at 9 when he performed live for the first time. The experience was enthralling for him as a kid, and since then, he knew what he wanted to do for the rest of his life. Although Lil Dawg did not get any encouragement from anyone around him except his family, he never gave up on his dreams. He heard people telling him that he would not make it in the music industry and that his music sucked. Luckily, Lil Dawg took this criticism as a challenge to only emerge stronger to face the next one. Growing up, he wanted to prove his haters wrong by excelling in his craft, but poverty was another hurdle for him.
Raised in a family where money was tight, Lil Dawg always felt things were strained in his family, and pursuing his passion for music would be a luxury. He wanted to earn a living to become financially independent so he could support his dreams. Lil Dawg started working as a social media marketer at Gateway, a famous marketing agency owned by celebrity entrepreneur Carter Jamison. Lil Dawg helps budding artists get noticed on social media and has helped a team successfully motivate over 10K clients with their impeccable service.
Despite a successful career as a social media marketer, Lil Dawg relentlessly chased his dream of becoming a chart-topping artist. Today he is a music sensation on social media with over 70K followers on Instagram and more than 80k views on his YouTube videos. He has been awarded at The Love Of Sean Talent Show and The 40th Precinct Community Council for National Night Out for his unique style of music. With this recognition, Lil Dawg landed several opportunities to perform at famous clubs like Webster Hall NYC, Club Rebel, and The Emporium, opening for mainstream artists like Mindless Behavior, Rip rapper, Chinx, Styles P, Coke Boys, and Freeway.
Over the years, the rapper has developed a strong work ethic to consistently polish his skills. Lil Dawg has invested in himself and his dream of becoming a national recording and performing artist throughout his career. He is confident in his art and counts on his loyal fan base that has always kept him motivated through the thick and the thin.
Lil Dawg kept pushing even in the face of adversity to charge ahead with his dreams. To him, “Just keep pushing” is the golden rule to accomplishing any goal in life. With that, he wants to continue his journey for many more years, becoming an A-lister in the industry and entertaining more audiences with his music.
