A Houston act so early in their career has never had such prolific strides quite like that of Guapo, who many have come to also know as “Lil Guap”. The young upstart’s name truly does speak for itself as the 20 year old rapper has captured the attention of what seems to be the entire city of Houston in such a short matter of time.
This past year Guapo has played a pivotal role in being the forefront of Houston’s newest faces by delivering consistent buzzing material such as, his leading single “Mr. Put It On”. A new lingo, new swagger, and a fresh face are all things Guapo has used to his advantage while rising to the top of Houston’s budding music scene. With cosigns from Lil Baby, Future, Young Thug and more it is safe to say Guapo has mastered a new flow full of punchlines, quotables, and instagram captions that is just simply above par.
There’s no telling what surprises Guapo has in store for his promising debut, but it is safe to say that it will be one of the most highly anticipated projects coming out of the South by a new rap artist this year.
