LilTillyT is a Miami born artist now residing in Atlanta, Ga. In only a year he has created fan favorites such as “Blacker Panther” and “Emperor’s New Groove” and as such has garnered the attention of blogs and radio station alike. Citing iconic J rock and K pop bands (especially from anime.) as his earliest and favorite musical influences, he has also said that he’s been influenced heavily by Wiz Khalifa and Mac miller who he claims to be the first american rappers he’s enjoyed enough to become a fan of. He has also been caught naming Tyler the Creator, The Underachievers, Childish Gambino, Pro Era, XXXtentacion, Eminem, Insane Clown Posse, Linkin Park, System Of A Down Ski Mask The Slump and Flatbush Zombies all as inspiration to his style. This Crazy conglomerate combined with 90s and early 2000s cartoons resulted in the crazy feel good happy feel that is present within the songs of TillyT. He reportedly plans of using the influence he receives from music to “Save the world a lil bit”. Though he has not explained his plan, one thing is certain, he’s no run of the mill artist..
