LiMM is a young African prodigy who is carrying a legacy on his shoulders with every track he creates. Thumping bass mixed with catchy honest lyrics and a literally worldly sound, LiMM’s universal appeal is not surprising. Coupled with LiMM’s unprecedented work ethic and his prolific output, LiMM is taking the world by storm and has no intention of looking back. With three albums and a plethora of singles under his belt, LiMM has already reached viral levels and continues to ascend. Don’t get left behind.
Born in Freetown, Sierra Leone in West Africa eventually emigrating to Canada and then moving to Philadelphia at the age of 12, LiMM was forced to grow up at a young age. “Growing up we didn’t have a lot,” LiMM recalls, “I learned how to live within my means.” This also pushed him to focus on what was important, becoming hard-working and disciplined in everything he put his mind to. From the beginning, LiMM was thrust into music, being involved in multiple choirs, which would forever leave an impact on the art he’d go on to create. It wasn’t until his junior year of high school that LiMM really jumped into the hip-hop side of things. After freestyling with a friend and receiving positive feedback, “This pushed me to keep going,” LiMM says and in just a few years our young upstart was ready to begin his full journey into hip-hop.
LiMM’s music can’t be boxed and can only be defined as eclectic and prolific. The West African artist pulls from a variety of sounds and fits each of those sounds like a glove. LiMM never forces the issue, every beat is a new adventure that he’s taking the listener on. 2017 brought the release of LiMM’s debut album “Lessons You Should Learn” again showcasing the breadth of LiMM’s knowledge and versatility. Essentially a concept album “the EP was basically me trying to explain to listeners what I felt were important lessons to learn in order to make a relationship work and last.” LiMM says about “Lessons”. If you can imagine it, LiMM is able to create it, confident braggadocio, romantic cuts, introspective tracks, roof cracking anthems, LiMM. Can. Do. It. All.
