Emerging from the U.S. trap capital of Atlanta, rapper Lil Gotit swiftly rose to the top of the scene in the late 2010s, racking up support from famous fans such as Lil Uzi Vert, Gunna, and his mentor Young Thug, whose distinct vocal style heavily influenced Gotit's delivery. He delivered his official debut, Hood Baby, in November 2018, followed by 2019's Crazy But It's True, home to his hit single "Da Real Hoodbabies."
Born Semaja Z. Render, he was raised in the city's southside. He started early in the rap game, writing with his brother, rapper Lil Keed, on early tracks such as "Trap Bunkin," an Atlanta club favorite. The pair would record their music at home and, when Gotit was kicked out of high school, he decided to pursue music full-time, soon committing to face tattoos and designer clothes. After appearing on 2016's Young Slime Mixtape, he released Super Squid the following year. He signed with Alamo Records for the release of his official debut, 2018's Hood Baby, which recruited Gunna, Lil Keed, HoodRich Pablo Juan, and more. Early the next year, he stepped it up with Crazy But It's True, scoring his first hit with the single "Da Real Hoodbabies." ~ Neil Z. Yeung
