“Esperar lo inesperado.”
In English, those three words translate to the phrase—“Expect the unexpected”—and you most definitely should when it comes to Kap G. The gold-certified bilingual 23-year-old Atlanta rapper consistently surprises at every turn by unapologetically being himself. As a kid, he co-founded the rap group that would codify his name Kap—Kids At Play and by 2011 he formally entered the industry. 2016’s El Southside put him on the map fueled by fan favorites such as “Don’t Need Em” [feat. Young Thug], “Power” [feat. YFN Lucci], and, of course the certified gold single, “Girlfriend.” Meanwhile, 2017’s SupaJefe spawned the hit “I See You” [feat. Chris Brown] as he regularly averaged over 2.7 million monthly listeners on Spotify. He also went on to headline his own SupaJefe Tour and supported Brown on the massive Party Tour.
In 2017 he also emerged as one the few Mexican-Americans to join XXL’s Freshman Class since its launch. With a burgeoning profile, Sprite tapped him to star in a campaign alongside Lil Yachty, D.R.A.M., Vic Mensa, Vince Staples, and Kamaiyah, and Billboard named him among its “10 Hottest MCs of Latin Descent in Hip-Hop Today.” 2017 also saw him serve up the Mood EP. Its lead single “Marvelous Day” [feat. Lil Uzi Vert & Gunna] clocked 17 million streams and 15 million YouTube views within a few months’ time. It also set the stage for his most recent project no kap, which included features from Ty Dolla $ign, Playboi Carti and more, along with the release of his latest thought provoking single, “A Day Without A Mexican.”
