SoFaygo recorded his first song in the 4th grade. He spent every afternoon since the 9th grade teaching himself to record, mix, and master music in GarageBand.
Now, just a year after graduating from High School, the 19-year-old, Cobb County, Georgia rapper is accelerating toward a career-launching breakthrough after two mixtapes, both released in 2020, elevated him from Soundcloud obscurity to more than 900,000 monthly listeners on Spotify. Angelic 7, produced entirely by multi-platinum teen idol Lil Tecca, was the first. “Knock Knock,” their debut record together, is SoFaygo’s biggest single to date with 7 million plays on Spotify and rising. After Me, the project that came next, features eight songs that showcase the ear candy flows and charismatic cadences he’s been developing since his senior year.
Born in 2001, SoFaygo cites Chief Keef, Rich Homie Quan, Young Thug, Chris Brown, Usher, and Drake as the melodic artists who inspired him to create a versatile style of music-making he describes as “wavy.” Able to make waves in any genre, from Rap to Rock or R&B.
With a loyal fanbase and famed rappers Lil Yachty, Trippie Redd, and Travis Scott all paying attention now, SoFaygo feels like he’s knocking on the door to stardom.
