SoFaygo, born Andre Dontrel Burt Jr., recorded his first song in the 4th grade. Teaching himself to record, mix, and master music in GarageBand is how he spent every afternoon since the 9th grade. Now, just a year after graduating from Etowah High School, the 19-year-old, Cobb County, Georgia rapper is accelerating toward a career-launching breakthrough after two mixtapes, both released in 2020, elevated him from Soundcloud obscurity to more than 900,000 monthly listeners on Spotify.
Born in 2001, SoFaygo cites Chief Keef, Rich Homie Quan, Young Thug, Chris Brown, Usher, and Drake as the melodic artists who inspired him to create a versatile style of music-making he describes as “wavy.” Able to make waves in any genre, from Rap to Rock or R&B. With a loyal fanbase and famed rappers Lil Yachty, Trippie Redd, and Travis Scott all paying attention now, SoFaygo feels like he’s knocking on the door to stardom, but instead of waiting for someone to answer, he’s ready to, “Kick that bitch down.”
