Atlanta born and raised lyricist, YFN Lucci shows through his recent success that he indeed has the Key to the Streets. Through his various mixtapes and notable collaborations, YFN Lucci has plans to build an empire like his influences, 2Pac, Jay-Z and Jeezy.
YFN Lucci began making music at the age of 16, but didn’t start taking it seriously until meeting Johnny Cinco. Cinco recognized Lucci’s talent and encouraged him to better his craft. Lucci took Cinco’s word and improved his sound and a couple years later was featured on Cinco’s Mixtape, John Papi. Lucci used the resources around him, like his older brother, rapper “K”, to expand his network in Atlanta and in major music capitals throughout the country.
YFN Lucci is now signed to indie label, TIG and is building his empire from the ground up. With the help of label-mates such as Kap G, Rich Homie Quan and Trinidad James, Lucci is able to spread his message throughout the streets. With the release of his record YFN, he's able to show the youth what it is to truly be “Young and Fly”. His goal is to encourage people and to give them the confidence to follow their dreams and accomplish their goals.
As a member of Atlanta’s quickly rising indie label, TIG, Lucci has the opportunity to collaborate with many hot Hip-hop artists. His latest recognition comes from collaborations with 2 Chainz, Plies, Migos, Johnny Cinco and more.
Earlier this year he built more buzz around his enterprise with the release of Wish Me Well 2, a fan favorite. In Summer ’16, he debuted his video for Key to The Streets featuring Trouble and Migos during the BET Experience Awards Weekend. The video now has over 10 million views and the record is still climbing to the top of Billboard’s Hip-hop charts. This hit is becoming an anthem in the streets and is taking Lucci’s success to a higher level.
This summer, he performed on a national tour with Kodak Black, Lil Uzi Vert and 21 Savage. This year, he’ll be making a stop a A3C Festival & Conference.
