Biography

Rapper Lou the Human's almost punk approach to hip-hop set him apart from many other artists in mid-2010s New York. The Brooklyn-born, Staten Island transplant first began rapping while in fifth or sixth grade, but by the eighth grade he was growing bored, so he branched out into beat-making. In true D.I.Y. fashion, he studied the music production software FL Studio before moving on to Logic, and even began to learn the piano. By this point, Lou the Human was intent on becoming a producer, but gradually the urge to rap reintroduced itself. He made his debut in 2016 with the single "Brink," which would also feature on his 2017 The Humaniac EP. The track was characteristic of his proclivity for minimalist, gritty beats, shocking and comedic rhymes, and a flow that was indebted to Eminem -- who he readily admitted was a major influence on his work. His own illustration featured on the song's cover, and this was a trend he would continue over subsequent singles. Even though "Brink" was bereft of a chorus, it created a buzz around the young artist, and the following year Lou the Human issued a string of releases. "Lou's Dead," "Slim Buddha," and "Macklemore" all arrived in 2017, and the latter also had an accompanying lo-fi video. ~ Bekki Bemrose
