Since debuting his first official music video to his single “Choppa” with fellow hometown on riser Lil Maru in January of 2021, he has been able to amass over 2.4 million views on his music videos alone. He now averages about 15,000 monthly listeners on every streaming platform.
22 has also hit the stage with numerous west coast luminaires including BlueBucksClan, Shordie Shordie, Lil Maru, Lil weirdo, Flashy B., and many more. Making Moves beyond his city, Friday (April 29), the rapper announced that he signed as an artist to OTR Records a Los Angeles-based label, marking the first time an SD artist has joined the imprint. With his momentum picking up as fast as it is, 22 has plans to break out of the traditional West Coast sound and become a mainstream act coming out of the city.
