Back Story – Lilbootycall (LBC) is a 23-year-old hailing from San Antonio, Texas, who is leading the wave of a fresh, uplifting genre in hip-hop. Priding himself on abstaining from alcohol, drugs and smoking, LBC represents the under-represented and bullied youth in our society. LBC may have one of the most outlandish names in the game, but its origins come from a real and possibly relatable place. The young artist felt like both his friends and women alike only reached out to him when their original plans fell through—leaving him to feel like a last minute “booty call.” He’s gained quite the following on SoundCloud and has racked up millions of plays on songs like “Sailor Moon,” which gained the attention of Noisey, who shot a short with LBC in January of last year. The music video for “Sailor Moon” has been viewed over 4 million times and is described by Noisey as “replete with an aesthetic that’s on lock and sweeter than a Krispy Kreme.”

The Hype Magazine caught up with LBC to discuss his rising celebrity, what surprises him the most about his new status, meeting Usher for the first time and more:

Lilbootycall has embarked on the JESUS SAID RUN IT BACK TOUR which kicked off this August in support of his debut mixtape JESUS SAID RUN IT BACK. The project features guest appearances from Juicy J, GoldLink, Cuco and Kwe$t.

The tour launched on August 21st in Dallas, TX and caps off in September in New York (full dates below). Prior to the announcement, LBC also released a new video earlier this week from the project titled “Prescriptions” featuring GoldLink.

Lilbootycall has racked in over 20 million cumulative streams across platforms and garnered attention from MTV, The FADER, HYPEBEAST, Forbes, XXL and more. Watch the new video now and don’t miss LBC live on the road this summer!
