Table of Biography
Early Life and Education
Splurge was born on August 21, 2001, in Arlington, Texas, the United States of America. As of the year 2020, he is 19 years old. He is also known as SSG Lil Splurge. His birth sign is Leo and he holds an American nationality. He was raised primarily by his mother, who took on the challenges of raising three children while her partner was incarcerated. They had a rough life as they faced evictions and had to constantly move around. Also, Splurge was kicked out of high school and then he got involved with street activity from a young age, with rap becoming a casual side project from the age of 15. He has not shared details about his early life and his parents.
One of his earliest releases was ‘Beat By Jeff’ in 2018, it has 5.3 million views. In 2018 his career leveled up. He was already known throughout his hometown, when ‘BackWoods’ dropped. From his YouTube and SoundCloud credentials, the songs have established over a million hits on a single platform. He released it in May 2018 and it has gathered 1.4 million plays on SoundCloud. Also, his own track like ‘Intro Part 2’, is very famous and one of the most successful track. It has over 9 million views on his YouTube channel. He merged his dark, guttural vocals with deep-set 808s and simplistic melodies, forging a blend of trap that pushed blunt force over all else.
Moreover, after the viral success of late-2010s singles “Backwoods” and “Intro Part 2,” the Arlington rapper found himself at the core of Texas’ underground scene, regularly reaching millions of streams on platforms like WorldStarHipHop. While he found significant local success with casual singles, it wasn’t until 2018’s “BackWoods” that the Arlington MC truly made his mark. The track, finding viral success through streaming platforms, reached hundreds of thousands of plays, pushing the rapper’s career past his Texas origins.
Eschewing melody in favor of simplistic sub-basses, Splurge’s skeletal production (at the hands of local collaborator Beat by Jeff) added urgency to his gruff tones, only enhanced further by his hookless two-minute song structure. The result was a thoroughly unique blend of street rap; propelled by Jeff’s bouncy 808s, Splurge was at the forefront of his own Southern-based sound. Splurge is known for his energy that captures many of his fans to stay tapped into his music.
He was riding high on the success of “Backwoods,” Splurge soon released his debut mixtape, GlockEeeee, in June 2018. Produced entirely by Beat by Jeff (who received his own shout-out on the self-titled track “Beat by Jeff”), the project became the rapper’s defining statement, layering reckless flows and trap-based lyricism with Jeff’s 808-driven sonics. Three further tapes followed that year: August saw the release of Glen Baby and No Melody, while November gave rise to SPLURGE GO! From these works came the rapper’s second significant hit, “Intro Pt. 2,” which racked up millions of plays through placement on popular rap platform WorldStarHipHop.
Keeping his fans fed through early 2019 with a string of singles including “Dior,” “UK Talk,” and “Margiela,” Splurge returned to the mixtape format in October with Glen Baby 2. Similarly, he had experimented with different sonic styles throughout the year, the project featured production from Yung Glizzy and 6ix7 (a key collaborator on SPLURGE GO!), as well as the return of Beat by Jeff for the long-awaited “Intro Pt. 3.” Despite some sonic variance, the project retained Splurge’s key ethos: hard beats and even harder vocals. He and fellow rapper Yella Beezy both came up within the greater Dallas Fort Worth rap scene.
