Lil Tecca He’s 17 and innocent. In an interview with Genius breaking down the Glock-toting chorus to “Ransom,” he clarified that, “I don’t got no [guns]!”
Lil Mosey At 17, he's tied with Tecca as the youngest on this list.
Lil Baby He has a song with Drake titled “Yes Indeed,” in which he raps, “Wah wah wah, bitch/I’m Lil Baby.” He also has a song with DaBaby, called “Baby,” so he’s really leaning into it.
Lil House Phone There's a baby photo on his Instagram of him playing with a house phone. One might say this was his calling.
Lil Keed His name should be Lil Young Thug, because he sounds exactly like him. To be fair, Keed grew up on the same street as Thugger and is signed to his label.
Lil Gotit We can’t say for sure if he’s got “it,” but he’s got six older siblings, including Lil Keed.
Lil Tjay In a Pitchfork interview, he said people refer to him as the “Bronx Justin Bieber” and, honestly, we stopped reading and listening after that. (“Pop Out” still slaps, though.)
Lil Uzi Vert He’s 5-foot-4, so his “lil” name might be the most fitting of the bunch.
Lil Meech He’s the son of infamous Detroit drug lord Big Meech, founder of the Black Mafia Family. We’ll skip the snarky remarks and keep it moving.
Lil Tracy As you might have guessed based on lil’ rapper logic, his name is not Tracy. His birth name is Jazz, an infinitely better name than “Tracy.”
Lil Raven Last we checked, he was not a bird.
Lil Nas X His government name is Montero Lamar Hill, and much like his music, his stage name doesn’t make much sense. On top of that, he’s reportedly 6-foot-1.
