From the Hood to Whisky A Go Go; teenage rapper to debut at celebrated music venue

LOS ANGELES – 02-12-2019 ( — After a year of putting rhymes on Soundcloud and performing at public schools and block parties, Lil Litty, a 15-year-old rapper from South Central Los Angeles, will be making his first professional gig. It’s at Whisky A Go Go,  one of the most celebrated music stages in Los Angeles. 

On Feb. 20, Lil Litty, born Sean Raven, will be opening for RBL Posse, a San Francisco gangsta rap group. RBL Posse  has charted on Billboard magazine’s Hot Rap Singles and Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts.

This gig wasn’t the most conventional fit. Litty doesn’t rap much about street life. He focuses on rhymes about self-improvement, helping people and having fun.

But Doc Gunnn, the Whisky’s talent booker, wanted to take a chance on this new rapper. Doc heard Litty on live music marketplace Gigmor.”He’s a promising young artist,”Gunnn said. “We wanted to give him a platform.”

He cold called and left a voicemail for Litty and his mother Lillian Raven.   Said Litty, “I was speechless, the Whiskey a Go Go was hitting me up? My second thought was I got to practice.”

Last year, Litty’s song “Young Legend,” a memorial to the slain rapper XXXtention, was posted on Soundcloud. It received 2.7 million listens. Last month, he posted the song “Lit Like A Bic” on Soundcloud. It already received 1.6 million listens.

Music is Litty’s second project. In November 2016, he started Lemonade Millionaires. He sold lemonade and branded T-shirts and hoodies at the South Central lemonade stand.

About the Author: Carrie Brunner

Carrie Brunner grew up in a small town in northern New Brunswick. She studied chemistry in college, graduated, and married her husband one month later. They were then blessed with two baby boys within the first four years of marriage. Having babies gave their family a desire to return to the old paths – to nourish their family with traditional, homegrown foods; rid their home of toxic chemicals and petroleum products; and give their boys a chance to know a simple, sustainable way of life. They are currently building a homestead from scratch on two little acres in central Texas. There’s a lot to be done to become somewhat self-sufficient, but they are debt-free and get to spend their days living this simple, good life together with their five young children. Carrie writes mostly on provincial stories.
