About this artist

Charismatic and mischievous, Atlanta trap rapper Foogiano set himself apart from his contemporaries with his quick bars, playful lilt, and Southern drawl. Early on, he scored a hit with the single “Molly (Baby Mama),” which later got the remix treatment with DaBaby. In 2020, he made his mainstream breakthrough as the first signee to Gucci Mane’s New 1017 label, becoming a primary focus on Gucci’s crew compilations So Icy Summer and So Icy Gang. That same year, Foogiano released his official debut full-length, Gutta Baby. An extended version of the LP, Gutta Baby: Reloaded, appeared in 2022.
Born Kwame Brown in Greensboro, Georgia, he started writing poetry as a teenager, transforming his compositions into raps at the insistence of his little brother. In and out of lock-up, he was eventually sentenced to a three-year prison stint. Upon release, he decided to focus his energy on a music career. After winning a competition with Authentic Empire, Foogiano signed a deal with Gucci Mane’s New 1017 label in 2020, appearing on multiple tracks on So Icy Summer and So Icy Gang, Vol. 1. At the end of his whirlwind year, he issued his first album, Gutta Baby. Packed with classic trap production and his engaging delivery, the set featured guests DaBaby, Lil Baby, Jacquees, Tay Keith, labelmate Pooh Shiesty, and the label head himself, Gucci Mane. A deluxe edition of the album, Gutta Baby: Reloaded, appeared in 2022 and included the singles “Slicin” featuring Gucci and “Body 4 Body.” ~ Neil Z. Yeung
