South Carolina gives us another young rap star with Lil Mexico, whose real name is Lafazio Jones. From Grays Court, 22-year-old Lil Mexico takes influence from his small town and split home life to create vivid rap lyrics about real life. With his Money-Makin’ Outlaws crew, Mexico started with hits like Forever, Fully Loaded, and Trap Boys. Lil Mexico is signed to Alamo Records and is known for his affiliation with Lil Durk’s OTF Only the Family camp.
As a young artist, Lil Mexico keeps his music fast and uses inspirational beats similar to that of his inspirations like DaBaby. It brings listeners to their feet to dance or rap, or can sit them down in reflection of growing up in struggling communities. It’s the versatility that will make him climb the charts as he drops his next single, Mindless Behavior.
Lil Mexico has numerous EPs and singles with notable collaborations, such as Pooh Shiesty, MB Montana, Timo, and more. He has racked up over 40,000 monthly listeners on Spotify and 45,000 subscribers on YouTube.
